    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...

    Watermellon

    A friend when 17, gave me a quart. Another friend and I spiked a watermellon. We went to a spot we all hung out, a "drive in". No one was there while going back home. We were pulled over by the police (loud muffeler). Can't figure it out, the car reeked of alcohol. The...

    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...

    It's legal where I live to purchase moonshine

    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...
