Re: My own TV show

Goinbroke2, my bottles come from Mexico, so no two of them are the same size, so I fill each bottle to a level. There is an overflow on the fill nozzle so each bottle is filled to the same height. The Feds don’t like this, and if I filled 12,000 per hour they would make me stop, but I only fill 12,0...

My own TV show

Well, I’ve finally made it to TV. The state public television station here in Nebraska has done a story on me and my operation. It won’t be a moonshiner show like the one currently being shown, just me making vodka. Any one living in or near Nebraska – tune in to NET on Sunday night the 13th. I have...

Re: Getting into all grain beer

Scotty,
When making whiskey mash, we cook corn to get the starch out of the kernel, then add malted barely to convert the starch to sugar. We then ferment the sugar to make our hutch. My question is would this same process work making beer?? Thanks for you response.

Re: Getting into all grain beer

I’ve been wondering if anyone has tried mashing with unmalted barley as a base grain, and adding malted barley during the mash for conversion??? With the price of malt being a little over $1.00 USD, and the price of unmalted barley around .15 cents, this would lower the price considerably. In theory...

Re: opening a legal distillery in the U.S.

GoinBroke2, That sounds like a neat idea, putting a still on a trailer, but I think you had better check with the TTB before you make any big plans. In my case, if i move a still from one building to another I have to re-register the still. You can't just move things around even in your own facility...
