After much discussion, this thread will allowed to continue as long as the content doesn't stray into the distillation process. This corresponds with the trend of breweries getting involved with distillation. We've put a lot of effort into disproving the notion that homebrewers are moonshiners and don't feel that the organization as a whole benefits from discussions that confuse that effort.One afternoon I was brewing and a couple of cops showed up at my house regarding a former employee.
