I am happy to announce that Moonshine Distiller has teamed up with the Craft Distilling Academy to produce the Heads, Hearts, and Tails, a three-part instructional web series! It will be an ongoing effort to provide some high-quality instructional videos on all topics relating to distilling. And who knows, every once in a while maybe we’ll blow something up just for the fun of it!
We have just finished filming several episodes (which has been a blast!), so now we just need to edit them down a bit. We keep running into delays, but they will soon be ready for their debut on this blog!
Below is the list of stuff we plan on covering, however, this will be an ongoing series and we are always looking for new ideas so we are relying on you! If you have any topics that you would like us to cover, please leave them in the comments below!
