Facebook lurking

Post by Uncle Jesse » Wed Oct 28, 2020 9:54 am

Well I recently joined a group for Moonshining/Home Distilling on FB, just to see what's up, and it's pretty cool to see a lot of folks making UJSSM and other recipes from HD. Not all of the things on there meet the HD safety standards, but I keep my mouth shut. You can lead a horse to water...

Yep, I tried a few as well. Tried to gently correct some disinformation and finally said the hell with it and left.

I have enough trouble getting to the other distilling forums that I am a member of as I spend most all my time here.

Facebook and reddit can both be a cluster .... at times.

I get all of my education here. FB is "for entertainment purposes only".
That said, I won't join or comment on distilling pages on FB or Instagram. I dont trust FB and what they do with the information they collect.
I do subscribe to Still it. I like Jesse's videos.
Use all your senses, and its not that hard. You just have to pay attention.
