Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Norman Gibat is an Electronics Engineer. In 1966 he sold home wine and beer supplies. In 1968-1970 there was a small boom in making home wine and beer in the USA and Canada. Much of the material for this book was gathered prior to and during the period.

Kathleen Howard is a Programming Analyst. She was involved in the Home Wine, Beer and allied business while attending college at Oklahoma University in the 1960s. Much of her experience was gleaned through personal conversations with customers, a few of whom knew about distillation procedures in great detail because one or another of their parents were involved in "moonshining" as it was called in those days.

Format: Paperback
The Lore of Still Building seems to be the granddaddy of all the still building books. It's written in plain simple english and yet it's almost a technical source book. If you aren't interested in the "whys" and "wherefores" you can simply skip those chapters and start building your project the day you get the book. It's a book with all the facts mixed in with some good humor. The Alaskan Bootlegger's Bible is an OK book too, but it has too many "giggly" homespun stories for my taste --and using corncobs for ANYTHING related to distilling is going to yield fusel oil as well as alcohol. Ugh! The "Lore" may be a granddaddy but it's a wise granddaddy that doesn't bore you to death with old wive's tales. And I'm almost an "ol' wife" myself!

This is the only book I've read on this subject but it

answered all my questions and more. The authors do a

tremendous

job. There's even a chapter on how to make your own

"gasohol". Corn

farmers ought to like that.

Had some very good information overall but seriously lacked information on still building in general. I purchased this book in hopes that I'd be able to upgrade from the setup I have now. The information on stills is more basic with sketches and little detail. I was hoping for detailed engineer style drawings that I could follow. Unfortunate this was not the book you want if you already run any Kind of basic stills. Definitely still worth the five dollars I paid for it.
