About this product
- DescriptionWhen I first entered on the business of Distilling, I was totally unacquainted with it. I was even so igrant of the process, as t to kw that fermentation was necessary, in producing spirits from grain. I had idea that fire being put under a still, which, when hot eugh, would raise a vapour; or that vapour when raised, could be condensed by a worm or tube passing through water into a liquid state. In short, my impressions were, that chop-rye mixed with water in a hogshead, and let stand for two or three days; and then put into a still, and fire being put under her, would produce the spirit by boiling up into the worm, and to pass through the water in order to cool it, and render it palatable for immediate use-and was certain the whole art and mystery could be learned in two or three weeks, or months at farthest, as I had frequently met with persons who professed a kwledge of the business, which they had acquired in two or three months, and tho' those men were esteemed distillers, and in possession of all the necessary art, in this very abstruse science; I soon found them to be igrant blockheads, without natural genius, and often, without principle.
