 Curious if anyone has tried their hand with a still to make whiskey?  With the popularity of Moonshiners and availability of still kits on the internet....

So curious to this. Homebrew never interested me, shining however does.

Part of my lot is an acre of dense woods that blend into a larger tract of village woods and wetlands next to me. So, I've got that going for me, which is nice.

So, is the making of any moonshine illegal, or can you make a small amount legally for personal consumption. I recently met some one from Green Bay area who makes his own corn liquor.

I'm pretty sure you need a permit to distill.  Things can get expensive and EXPLOSIVE.

I've toyed with the idea of making whisky but don't have the patience to age it for years.

Just looked into it, permit is correct. Both Wisconsin and Illinois.

LOL.  Yeah man, take it slowly.  You can make some pretty good stuff just screwing around in your basement.  If you're looking for a few items that will help your brewing, I can suggest some items.  I'm sure others can suggest things too.

Here is my first suggestion:

One could consider something like applejack in the wintertime - make your own hard cider, then just leave outside and scoop the ice off. Wouldn't recommend getting hammered on the stuff, but might be the easiest first attempt.
