Hi tenngun,How was moonshine handled then. In frontier America many distilled at home, but it was primarily done by a local maker who served a community
It was a never ending competition between he who brewed and he who taxed
When I speak to farmers here, many recount stories of their fathers or grandfathers running home-stills. Indeed some were noted for their particular moonshine that they made and probably went on to supply their communities, but I think most would have just catered for home-use, if I judge by the number of people who recall their parents' brewing activities.
