Learning to Distill?

aaronk | | Oct 1, 2010 08:58 PM

I was inspired by the guy who started Breucklen gin in Brooklyn (surprise, right? / 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


any recommendations?
