    "comprehensive guide"

    The most comprehensive and useful whiskey guide I've found. the author makes it fun and interesting to learn about whiskeys from around the globe. As a result of her descriptions and suggestions, I've enjoyed a number of outstanding whiskeys I pro would never have tried. Well-explained, knowledgeable, and wise

    "proper guide"

    Awesome study even if you are not going to make your own. Amusing, informative, brilliant for anyone interested in American whiskey in general, records, booze technological know-how, etc. Might make a terrific present or coffee desk book Tough to place down, you may in all likelihood plow through it in an afternoon or that stated, I used it for recommendations to assist me make whiskey. And it was proper.

    "interesting guide"

    As a beginner I refer to it a lot. For me it was I needed to get started but wish there was a little more detail. Meaning if you don't know anything about distilling you need every detail even if it's boring.

    I enjoyed this quick little book. It looks like the author has the process down from what I understand. The best way to learn a thing is to do that that thing

    "Good Book"

    This book, basically, gives step by step instructions on building a still at home and making your own whiskey. It gives ingredients and equipment needed. I am not a whiskey drinker, but my husband is. Thanks to the author, we should be producing our own before you know it.

    "Making Your Own Whiskey"

    This book was well written. I was curious about the process and I believe that I now know. I bet the author has actually brewed or at least was there when some of the 'recipes were cooked. Get the book if you too are curious. I believe you will know all that you will need to know to make whiskey if you do so.

    "Guide to Building Your Own Still"

    I have no real experience but have been researching home distilling through multiple books. If you are in that category, this is the book for you. I feel I could use this book and a couple youTube videos and make my first run fine. I particularly like the advice in the build-or-buy chapter. This is the 3rd book I've gotten on the topic and this one is the best for me.

    "SIMPLE AND EASY BOOK"

    This book is very short and has a lot of information for the beginner. If you are looking for advanced techniques for distilling this book is not for you. This book has a few recipes for vodka and whiskey but the majority of the recipes are drink mixes. Overall I did like this book and will keep it around for reference.
