Turns out the guy is dead.
proly drank his own supply.
Could be... I mean, it's a fact that 100% of people who make their own liquor die, whether they drink it or not. I think, in this case, he had a terminal case of old age. ;)
On his (now his family's) site, he mentions the required ATF permits to operate your still legally, which subject you to random visits and inspections by that agency to make sure you are making the ethanol unfit for drinking. I don't know if they inspect your freezer for mason jars. Then, of course, a year or so later the IRS will show up with a massive "unpaid road tax" bill like they've been doing in many states to biodiesel makers. Unless you've been sending money to whatever agency you are supposed to be sending it to when you fill up, of course.
So, if you make your own biodiesel, E85, OR whiskey, keep it on the down-low! :eusa_sile
