I was inspired by the guy who started Breucklen gin in Brooklyn (surprise, right? / http://drinkingny.wordpress.com/2010/...) and I am contemplating what it takes to open a distillery.
Currently I'm still very employed, I know there would be a lot of legal to deal with if I ever decided to take this into the realm of actuality- but I'd like to learn more about it. I was wondering if anyone knew of some good books/sources to learn a bit about the distillation process from a practical stand point.
(ps, I know there's a lot of good wet blanket reasons why I shouldn't open a distillery, and they're all valid. But let me have my escapism dream, I'm just looking to learn a bit about it right now)
