Anyone seen this show?

I just stumbled on it and it rocks.

They made a truck that runs on wood chips or horse manure.

Now they are building a still.

Just bought some black powder guns and molds.

Lovin' it so far.....

I had seen it on the channel guide a few times running really late at night but last night was the first time I got to watch part of an episode.

It looks like a pretty cool show, I just hope they can film more before the guy gets put away by the ATF for his illegal still.

I thought the show was very interesting. I will definately be looking for that show every week. I just don't know what day new episodes are broadcast.

That is incorrect, while you may make your own beer or wine you can not distill your own liquor without being a registered distillery with the ATF. A person also must have proper permits to make ethanol fuel as well.

One of my college friends had an ATF agent stop by their house in the late 80's and confiscate and old still that they were using for fall decorations around their home. While I don't know the legality of him doing so, he certainly loaded it up and hauled it off while making threats to the family.

Yeah, I don't want anybody here getting in trouble, especially with the ATF.

It just happens to be another one of those areas where the rules are inconsistent, which seems to be common place with them.

You're quite right tmcfalls. But of course we have an advantage over the other guys because they teach us this in grade school down here. GI2
