Marie drank too much of that bootleg stuff with the lead in it.

Haven't tried any of the legal shine, yet i'm assured Shine nor Brandy is the quality it was say 40 or so years ago... Only difference i would perceive is Proof, & Possums not being present in fermentation/ beer boxes or whatever they call them now. Dem possums love dat stuff till death.... Me liked it myself if'in no varmint within...

But it still aint as good as Patron

Have tried then both and they are pretty good. bought some apple brandy from the Call family last year that was really good,

Just curious..... Who has tried any of the legal moonshines made locally? Copper Barrel and Call Family are the two that come to mind...... What do you guys think about them and how would you rate them next to the homemade non-taxed versions you've tried?

Just speaking about the white non-flavored varieties, I've only tried copper barrel's version. I think its decent and drinkable but I have an iron stomach when it comes to whiskey of any kind and i don't have a very discerning pallette.
Compared to non-taxed homemade white, I've had some that were smooth and drinkable, and others that you could clean toilets with.

I watched that show Moonshiners a couple of weeks ago that's on the Discovery channel. They always put one of these in the pipe coming out of the worm. It seems to make it flow better. It must add flavor. https://nebula.wsimg.com/ob...I6Ojo6OjA=

Who's still was it that got raided?


Posted 11:59 am, 01/22/2018

is there a market for that anymore

However, the proper distillation of wine into brandy removes some of the deadly methyl alcohol while fractional freezing concentrates it.


Posted 4:52 am, 01/02/2018

Yes my maddog has partially frozen before and of course I drank the remaining liquid. Tasted like brandy with rabies.

Well Sarg, for liquor to be sold in NC, it has to first be taxed. And that’s a bit of a problem with most of the beverages that were brought up in this thread.


Posted 9:34 pm, 01/01/2018

Fwiw, unless the laws have changed again, any liquor above 151 proof can no longer be sold in NC.... Everclear had to proof down their product so they could continue selling in NC. I imagine 151 was the magic number thanks to Bacardi's well-established product

The writing is near creek banks or near small branch banks now. Yet some still lye under ground. Pictures would be as good as writing even as stills have almost eroded away. Well those Charlie F Blew up anyway. Funny, we'd use unused fuse lines for clothes lines. They worked good, didn't leave no stain on clothing nor sagging. May have some still laying around in shed or some where. LOL...


Posted 7:56 pm, 01/01/2018

GW, I didn't read through this whole thread but did you ever find anyone to do the writing?


Posted 6:30 pm, 01/01/2018

re: winter wine

I'm sure that would raise the alcohol concentration as you would be removing water from the mixture, thus concentrating it. But how much, who knows. Depending on the original concentration, it might freeze at a lower temperature than 32 also. And It's also possible that evaporation rates will increase as EtOH has a lower volitility than water, so keep it corked ;)

I do have to admit, my grandpa's moonshine jars always smelled like diesel exhaust, and I kinda miss that smell


Posted 9:19 pm, 12/25/2017

You missed the part where they said “some” and “can”. You implied that it’s common in all moonshine. Typical liberal to spin and try to mislead.

Vehicle Radiators not good for a condenser. Yet dey work, but like said not good for consumption in the long haul....
