Maybe it's just a stereotype? Is it still done? Are anti-distilling laws enforced?

You can get it anywhere.

You just have to know the right people.

People from Puerto Rico were telling me there were stills down there too.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 7:56:30 PM EST
Yes, the laws are still enforced. Don't even think about trying it.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 7:56:47 PM EST
yes, yes, yes

Moonshining is alive and well in the south.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 7:57:52 PM EST
Yes, especially in the mountains.

I grew up in the North Georgia Mountains. You can bet your ass there is still people making moonshine. However, law enforcement doesn't care that you make it. They only care when you try to sell it.

Makin shine still occurs in the backwoods of the Appalachians. The feds still try and stop it occasionally but they
don't put near as much effort into it as they did in the past. They spend more time now going after
drugs etc. Tables full of cash guns and blow make for better news spots than some grainy hand
held camera vid of a still getting busted up.

haha. I haven't had the pleasure yet, but it's possible I may or may not in the future. Who knows. She says the apple pie kind may or may not be a favorite.

We have it back in OR, except we call it, "everclear".

I remember my grandmother, born in 1905, telling stories of being in the back seat of her Dad's car hiding from revenuers in Ohio.

Yankees did it too, and revenuers were just as likely to never be heard from again going into the woods in northern states as they were in the south.

In West Virginia, they sell corn whiskey in the state store.
I remember when this all started they said they were doing it to cut down on the people poisoning themselves (and others) with homemade whiskey. They figured if you could just buy it at the store, there would be no incentive to make it.

I have had a few bottles of it.
There was some called Stillbrooks Corn Whiskey that was pretty good stuff. However, the last time I was there (within the last six months) they no longer carried it. The stuff that had is like lighter fluid. I bought a couple bottles of it, but it isn't good. I drank part of a bottle but it isn't good.

If you are ever in the South, look for signs that say "P-nuts for sale."
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 8:45:14 PM EST
Still happens. Not as much as it used to but if you know the right people in the country (I don't) you can get it.

Back during Prohibition there was a lot in my grandma's rural town. The revenuers were always chasing after the moonshiners and some people got shot, deputies and civvies alike. I don't think people get shot over it much anymore though.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 8:52:57 PM EST
My uncle grew up during the depression in Kentucky. Revenurers would try to bribe the kids to tell who was hauling what where. No one would talk. My uncle delivered certian things to several stills. The revenurers found out and questioned the hell out of him. They offered him 50 buck to tell where each still was. He looked them direct in the eye and said make it a hundred and OK they agreed and said where is it. He said payment in advance and I'll tell you. The Fed said you might lie. My uncle came back and said I wont lie, my mom and pop would beat me if I lie. Beside you guys are not coming back. He was dead serious too. He would have got a beatin for lying and they wouldnt have come back. He said they realized it and left town.

I've heard a few f'ed up stories, too. Though, I will say the friends that I have there are some of the best people I know.

We're probably going to be going there for a visit in the next couple of months.

I worked with a guy with family from way out in the sticks and he gave me a glass jar with nasty white strawberries floating in it. It smelled like gasoline, and I decided not to taste it. (I was deeply concerned I would go blind or drop dead on the spot)

You have to know where to get it, that being said: peach moonshine is worthy of a nut bust.

More like E96 I beleive if you're refering to the % content. Can't get any higher with distilation.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 12:03:58 AM EST
I have had it numerous times. It is not as bad as everclear, however will make you spill your guts just as fast!
The stuff I had was actually like UV blue compared to everclear I think. It just goes down easier.
