    This book offers a very practical overview of home distilling. The writing style is nice, but it could have done with a bit more editing. Also, the personal comments about how her hubby likes his morning coffee etc could have been tuned down a notch, but that's just her style I guess. I do however think it is a bit of a shame that it only tells you how to do things and not why things work a certain way. It only tells her personal story and experiences with distillation, ranging from her frustrat This book offers a very practical overview of home distilling.

I do however think it is a bit of a shame that it only tells you how to do things and not why things work a certain way. It only tells her personal story and experiences with distillation, ranging from her frustration with the US tax and permit system to her homesteading lifestyle. All well and good, but I would like more information about different types of stills, in-depth chemical analyses and details about the distillation process itself, which I think is madatory information for such a book. So: nice read, but a bit thin on the info.

    I read this book to see what would be applicable in my quest to start distilling essential oil (not much), the chapter in building a still was interesting. There is also a ton of recipes and great points. I didn’t care much for Miller’s preachy tone throughout - there is no need for editorializing a how-to book.

    Poor writing, repetitive, and incorrect at times.

    If you're looking to distill legal spirits at home, this book will only get you part way there. I was hoping it would have some details about the forms you need to fill out both at the federal and state level (in the US), but she devotes all of a page and a half to the subject of actually becoming permitted to distill doesn't actually say much about it. Her discussion on the process of distillation is alright. She gets oddly specific about some details and really vague about others.

Her discussion on the process of distillation is alright. She gets oddly specific about some details and really vague about others. If you're interested in how to distill spirits, there are much better books available. The most useful part of the book is the recipes she includes for different spirits. Unlike many other books, she includes some for every major class of liquor (e.g., gin, vodka, tequila, bourbon, scotch, and other whiskies). This is personal preference, but I also very much dislike her writing style. It's very personal, to the point that she make's remarks at the end of chapters like "That's a good idea, I'll have to remember to do it" or "Almost missed last call for happy hour." I know it's supposed to be funny, but it's very much a turn off. Overall, if you know nothing about distilling, there's some useful information here, but it's often too vague or overly specific. If you've read any decent book about distilling, there's not much to get out of this.

    While not a "how-to" book, this publication contains strong tips and incentives for 'do-it-yourself" distilling. Definitely worth the time to read and contemplate. With all of the other things that we do ourselves what's one more? I want a still (if just for the experience of trying it once... or thrice...)
