Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 People

    Whoa!

    A fellow graduate student from West Virginia went home for Christmas and came back with a case his uncle had made, packaged in Mason jars.  Not much taste, like drinking EverClear, with an aftertaste somewhere between hominy and stale, wet cardboard.  Might have made a...

    So apparently in Switzerland,

    where I've got some family, there is a legal dispensation to brew up to 2 litres of schnapps per cow you own. Given that this is a ridiculous amount for its supposed purpose (treating colic) and there seems to be very little interest in policing it (my uncle doesn't own a...

    ...And I Still Do.

    I have straight (double filtered) corn whiskey, peach, and blueberry right now. I am currently experimenting with a vanilla extract - taste test June 6! And I'm playing with mixes with candied strawberries; still more work to get the cut right. Grew up with shine and will always...

    One day I was spending the week with my best

    friend. He was/is so rad. He's pretty much my stoner buddy. We hang out and get stoned together. I'm not much of a drinker at all, but he loves to drink. One day he and I walked to his other friends house. His other friend had moonshine. I'm a lightweight when it's comes to...
