By all means add left over fruits and veggies... I don't mind the "sour mash" smell. I won't do any thing from animals however:barf:
As for "stillin" I would check our friends at ATF real close... It is not just a tax on the sale. They want to tax for the "right" to make it at all. I understood it as ANY hard alcohol (distilled) MUST be REGULATED (taxed)... So for ya'll that think 10 gallons etc... I ask "How often?" per day, week, month or year?
Wine is allowed for PC (personal consumption) as it is not distilled.
I have a big pressure cooker I thought of making into a mini-still but would hate to get popped or lose the use of such a nice cooker.
