More About the Author
Not the kind of person to stay in one place too long Jeff's wanderlust has also lead to a multitude of careers. A true entrepreneur Jeff has lead business endeavors that include importing Art from Bali, Running a Video Game studio, PR for a top Silicon Valley marketing firm and even a brief run for local office as well as starting over half a dozen other small businesses, some successful and others that were more of a, well, "learning experience".
But it's what he does when he's not in the office that really makes for an exciting tale. If there is a sense of adventure or uncharted waters ahead you can be sure that he is the first to sign up. From learning the art of Moonshining in the hills of Kentucky to getting lost in the jungles of Central America, fly fishing the Yellowstone river in Montana, white water rafting in the Sierra's or even single handing a sloop through the islands of the Caribbean. You will read about some of these tales and even more in his first book, The Home Distiller's Workbook. Part "How To" book with good bit of story telling thrown in, the Home Distiller's Workbook is an enjoyable read and a thorough instruction manual all rolled into one.

He also offers some VERY important tips that prevent problems you would encounter if you were trying to just figure out on your own.
He includes some recipes - that include the ratios needed to produce product. Recipes for things like Whisky, Grappa, Scotch, Schnapps and Fuit Liquors.
He even tells you how to prevent your spirits from being "off".
I'll still be glad for personal instruction, but this book sure has helped me get ready for it and will be a great reference tool.
First of all, the book is tiny. It's got 80 pages of large print, widely spaced text with a few basic diagrams thrown in. If you shrank the print size and spacing down to normal book sizes I think you'd be looking at about 40 pages, which is pretty paltry. I read it in about an hour.
Second, the information presented is poorly laid out, frustratingly lacking in detail, and poorly edited. The book jumps around with little sense of flow, repeats itself, and uses Wikipedia as it's only reference.
Third, despite promising to in the title, it doesn't actually teach you to make Moonshine, Whiskey, or Vodka!! It doesn't seem like too much to ask a book to actually deliver on the promises in it's title, but incredibly this book fails at that. This book gives sketchy "recipes" without any details on what to do with the ingredients for Moonshine, Whiskey, etc... but amazingly says right there on page 60: "In this book we don't really have time to cover everything...so we are going to make rum." Then the author says that if you want to actually learn all the steps for making something other than rum, you'll need to buy his other books!! What kind of shady bait and switch nonsense is this?
Finally, as other reviewers have noted, the author has a bizzare habit of arguing nastily in the comments with folks who give his book low reviews. Had I read the reviews more thoroughly before purchasing this I would have seen the warnings for everything I've listed here, noted the strange way the author responds to constructive criticism, and gone elsewhere.
There are other, much better books availible.Read more ›
If you do have a genuine desire to distil spirits I HIGHLY recommend this book. Previous reviews mentioned a problem with diagrams (and the author addressed this in their comments), but my more recent purchase of this book had ALL diagrams present and detailed.
I want to thank the author for providing a timely revision of your best selling information.
