Named a Best Science Book of 2014 by Amazon, Wired, the Guardian, and NBC
Winner of the 2014 Gourmand Award for Best Spirits Book in the United States
Finalist for the 2015 PEN/E. O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award

“Lively . . . [Rogers’s] descriptions of the science behind familiar drinks exert a seductive pull.” — New York Times

Humans have been perfecting alcohol production for ten thousand years, but scientists are just starting to distill the chemical reactions behind the perfect buzz. In a spirited tour across continents and cultures, Adam Rogers takes us from bourbon country to the world’s top gene-sequencing labs, introducing us to the bars, barflies, and evolving science at the heart of boozy technology. He chases the physics, biology, chemistry, and metallurgy that produce alcohol, and the psychology and neurobiology that make us want it. If you’ve ever wondered how your drink arrived in your glass, or what it will do to you, Proof makes an unparalleled drinking companion.

“Rogers’s book has much the same effect as a good drink. You get a warm sensation, you want to engage with the wider world, and you feel smarter than you probably are. Above all, it makes you understand how deeply human it is to take a drink.” — Wall Street Journal

The complete guide for beginner and intermediate distillers. Make your own brew at home!

”If you’re going to invest the $100 or so to get a basic equipment and recipe kit, then you’ll want to take care in ensuring that your first batch is brewed correctly.” –Rick Morris, HowBrewBeer

The Joy of Home Distilling is covers nearly every facet of distilling:

  • Step-by-step instructions for the different processes, from bucket to bottle
  • The difference between spirit types and how to produce each
  • What yeast is, what it does, and how to ensure that you get a strong, complete fermentation
  • What distillation is and common misconceptions about the process
  • Legalities surrounding distilling alcohol at home
  • Carbon filtering—when it’s necessary, when to filter, and why you filter
  • Flavoring and aging your spirits
  • Keeping safety first when working with flammable materials, such as ethanol
    Yeast styles and nutritional requirements
  • Different methods of distillation and equipment
    Post-distillation process
  • And of course, fun drink recipes! (Try the Mudslide or the Cherry Bomb!)

Author Rick Morris, who has been selling distillation equipment for over 25 years, even includes his own recipes for different types of spirits and drink recipes. By learning not just how to distill, but also what is happening at each step and why it is needed, readers will be armed with the information they need to experiment with their own spirits and concoct their own recipes. Easy to understand even for a first-time distiller, The Joy of Home Distilling is sure to become your number one distilling resource.

KegLand Distilling Parrot

KegLand Distilling Parrot via William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

What is a Distilling Parrot? A distillers parrot allows you to take alcohol gravity measurements using an Alcometer continuously throughout your pot or reflux run. It should be placed inline of your distillation outlet so that the drops of distillate fall directly into the tallest collection cone (be sure to throw out the first 3 ounces or so as they are poisonous). You will then place your Alcometer gently into the lower cone piece (be careful not to drop it in without any liquid/distillate in there, as Alcometers are fragile). 12.5″ tall, 6.5″ wide on its wide side. Made by KegLand.

Includes an Alcometer and 12″ length of silicone output hose to attach to the outlet.

304 Stainless Steel Construction, holds up to 3.5 fluid ounces (without alcometer), 32 ounce total weight.


 

  • This is on sale for $49.99.  No coupon code is required.
  • Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the contiguous US depending on your order size for most items.
