In a store? schweeeet.

I've never seen it in a store though I've always wanted to try making my own. From what I understand, you are allowed to make 6 quarts per year for personal consumption. Of course, I am not a lawyer (I don't even play one on TV) so YMMV.

I bet strawberries would taste better than corn. The last moonshine I had, you could taste the corn in it. It was distinct. Potent stuff, but it was like drinking liquid corn.

The first time I had moonshine, it tasted like rubbing alcohol. Well, that's maybe a bit much... it was strong stuff though. Made me feel like I'd just gotten off of a 400 mile ride in a volkswagen full of rastafarians with the windows rolled up.

I have had a chat with a DIY wine and beer store, and it might be legal per the state, but per federal statutes the distillation of liquor with out a BATFE license is illegal and will land you in pound me in the ass prision if you get caught.

Basically the license is available to pick up from the BATFE, but you must pay taxes on any ammount that you make.

I have some, its called "Georgia Moon" about the only thing I have found to cut it with to make it go down easier is tomato juice. It says "Less than 30 days old" on the bottle. I would pass.

That is correct. However, you can brew 100 gallons or beer or wine per adult in your household to a maximum of 200 gallons every year for personal consumption.

100 gallons of alcohol! per single person! That's 100 / 365 = 0.27 gallons of beer/wine per day! More than a quart of beer/wine per day per capita!

It goes by a lot faster than that.

And when you brew your own beer, you don't necessarily have to stick to 6% alc by volume

When I made beer, I always went for the super dark malt kind. My alcohol content always tested in the 12%-15% area, and was smooth as glass. FULL flavored!

American beer sucks two buckets of ass compared to homemade beer.

Then you've been drinking the wrong American beers.

Sure, 90+% of the American beer market is primarily "sex in a canoe" beers - ie, fucking close to water - but the micro and craft brew industries are scraping out their own market niche. And now that Georgia pulled it's head out of it's Prohibition-Era ass a year or two ago, the state has seen a massive influx of these beers that were previously unobtainable in the state - you just have to know where to look.

Agreed. Many of those beers are excellent.
