Is there much difference in taste when using sugar rather than corn N barley?

They use cane sugar in my neighborhood. Corn is too expensive right now. $4.95 / bushel Harrisonburg,VA.

Tremendous difference. Straight sugar made tastes like battery acid all the way to the gut. It must be mixed to enjoy. Corn with sugar has a warm smooth taste.

I worked with a older man about 50 years ago that made shine. His brother and him ran a still when he was a young man, his father died when a piece of shale fell and crushed him in the coal mine where they worked. That's when they left the mine and went to moonshining. Mush told me you could make enough in a teapot on the stove every night to keep yourself supplied instead of using a still. They finally got caught and his older brother took the rap and went to prison for a couple of years, Mushy stayed home and took care of their mom.

Ive heard a rumor you can take a cheap used pressure cooker and pop out the relief valve and thread copper tubing into it. For about 5 bucks in a used pressure cooker pot and a couple more in copper ive heard you would have a little unit.

I guess if the Feds follow you home from buying your pressure cooker thinking maybe you are a Boston bomber, just tell them naw, I'm making shine!

what do you mean , people went mad this year buying pressure canners , and canning supplies

just buy a case of jars and lids to put your shine in and your just home preserving.

Knew a fellow who said he knew a fellow that said sugar was for selling, corn was for sipping. It's an old argument.

I've often wondered just how a straight corn malted sour mash done in the scotch style adapted to the south using hickory instead of peat then aged in a port wine made from muscadines or other southern grape barrel would turn out.

Its true. First time I tasted the difference it was unreal. Even 140 proof corn goes down like warm water. Sugar. Sucks.
