    So many people these days are making inferior 'shine, adding a pint of peach schnapps to a gallon for flavoring and selling it as true peach 'shine. No where close. There are still good sources around to some awesome shine.
    So there still are old-school moonshiners still out there! There used to be a moonshine culture in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. It was a dry province for over a century so naturally the locals adjusted.

    Good to know that not ALL the old skills are being abandoned.
    I'm surprised they didn't put the kibosh on the alternative fuel angle. They are losing taxes that would normally be imposed on the fuel. Perhaps fuel taxes aren't as high south of the 49th.

    Absolutely. Maybe not on the scale it was years ago, but it is readily available IF you know the right people.

    Alcohol fuel manufacturers are required to add a chemical to make it undrinkable. I'm sure you have to be licensed. You CAN buy kits to make your own bio-diesel from vegetable oil (which is non-alcoholic).
    Moonshine is generally (unlicensed) non-aged corn liquor. Storage in charred wooden barrels is what turns it brownish and changes the taste, that's usually called whiskey.
    I tried the real Franklin county deal as a teenager and it burned like a mutha. It was supposedly good stuff, my cousin was born & raised there and procured it. I'm just not a liquor drinker, and if I do I'd rather have bourbon, like Wild Turkey.
