If you've ever....
Made moonshine for purely medicinal purposes
Or to be used as hand sanitizer....

I’m itchin’ to get my pot still out of storage.
Now I’m wondering if it’s okay to use a sac run for sanitizer.
Last week BC - before Chinese virus - I stopped at Dollar General for a scrub pad.
There they were-

If you burn your sugar and grain bags instead of putting them in the trash, you may be a stiller.

Lately wifey has been busting my balls for making too much likker, now with the world going to shit she’s fine with me making our own hand sanitizer

Pulled up at the Feed Store this afternoon for some wheat.

Maybe I've been watching too much Mark & Digger on tv.....

I have to admit it was quite funny. I picked up 100 lbs of sugar and some yeast at the local restaurant supply house. Let's just say there was a gentleman with a couple more years than me in the line behind me. With a twinkle in his eye, he causally said "just sugar and yeast today--huh imagine that" I just told him since we were stuck at home she was doing a lot of baking". He never said a word, just did that little purse of his lips.

If the people at the restaurant supply store think you're running a tamale business but are sad that your always sold out.... you might be a stiller.

If you've ever...

Purchased kitchenware nicer than what your missus has in the kitchen and she's not allowed to use it,

you might be a stiller.

I see the way my wife looks at my collection of pots and measures and I can tell she's jealous :) .

Your friend hosts and bartends a neighborhood Christmas party so you offer to provide him a few gallons of hard liquor for free.

If while baking, the wife says "do we have any more sugar" then looks at you realizing what she said and bursts out laughing as you head to the 70 bags in the basement.... You might be a stiller.

If you buy molasses 40 liters at a time it might not mean you own horses or cows.

If you walked into the hardware store and saw this across the lot...and your jaw dropped, your heart beat faster, and you ran toward it only to find out it was a space heater....yeah, you might be a stiller. And your wife might look at you like you was nuts.

Occasionally when looking at Facebook Marketplace I check and see if there are any kegs for sale locally.
I just searched and this popped up in West Memphis Arkansas (several hours from me)

If you ever had a few too many while reading about dunder pits, lactic acids, and easters then decide to infect 50# of freshly mashed corn with this years sour kraut. You might be a stiller.

If even your wife picks that up, you may have a stilling companion.
