Re: happy birthday RAD

I would type/sing Happy Birthday to you but, it seems that
the last time I did it. Some said my typing was like finger nails down a chalk board.

So... Just a simple HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Rad and many more to come.

Welcome to the Forum. I think most of us were either wine or beer makers before crossing that forbidden line into distilling.

Re: Checking In

This hobby is only as expensive as you make it.
You make wine. Your half way there now.
A simple pot still is not all that expensive.
For another $100 dollars you could make
a bad tasting wine into perhaps, an excelent
brandy.

Welcome to the Forum.
You'll save hundreds if you'll only make a pot still
instead of buying your commercial still of choice.
Pot still are easy to construct and even easier to use.

Great place
and a place of time and patience.
Brewing beer, almost double that time and you'll be distilling if
your in a hurry.
If you can go fishing all day long, not get a fish, think you had
a great time. Distilling is going to be for you.

Dis-respect them if you wish. Then as now, they have fought and died for a country
