Legal corn whiskey has been available for years from a distillery in
Georgia that sells it as "Georgia Moon."
There was a guy here in KY who wanted to start making it commercially
five or six years ago, but I haven't heard much about him lately.
"Lord, that stuff'll make you take back
stuff you never even stole"

C&H Liquors, talking about Wild Turkey
Now available: "Nobody Knows, Nobody Sees"
I stand (set) corrected. I thought I remembered as a youngun that it was
legal to distill alcohol up to a limit, but either I got it wrong or they
changed the law.... here's from the haws' mouth...
S6: Have you heard about the science fair project or school project where a
a.. Builds a homemade still,
b.. Lets leftover food scraps ferment and turn into alcohol,
c.. Burns the alcohol in a lantern, and
d.. Compares the alcohol to other sources of energy?
A. Well, under current law and regulations, we cannot allow you to conduct
experiments involving distillation of alcohol at your home.
As an alternative, Federal law allows us to issue a permit for an alcohol
fuel plant, or AFP. Under this type of permit, experiments with alcohol
fuels can be conducted at locations properly qualified with ATF.
