Format: Paperback
Moonshiner's Manual is more than just an instruction book for distilling alcohol. It is a cleverly concocted treatise that discloses the know-how of generations of back-woods American moonshiners. Michael Barleycorn captures the mood and history surrounding the technological, social and political details of illegal distillation in his light and humorous style. Complete with diagrams and hilarious illustrations, the manual presents tried and true methods for manufacturing all the components of a still, as well as recipes for fermenting mash and aging the liquor. But the book is also an honest and noteworthy record of a nearly extinct clandestine industry that sprang from grass roots, and through years of experimentation, developed into a unique and ingenious American art form.

I think this book should be in every moonshine library. It is a unabridged reprint of the original 1979 publication, and covers the traditional moonshine methods. Some would call it obsolete, but my opinion is it is excellent for anyone wanting to make moonshine using the traditional method. Moonshiner's Manual, Making Pure Corn Whiskey, and The Complete Distiller make a well rounded library.

Fascinating reading for sure:this was a kind of 'self sufficiency for social occasions' in lean times, where innovation was both essential and highly valued.The book is well well written and punctuated with a great old sense of mischievous humour ;it makes a great read - well I think so anyway:]
