There's a 19 year old Harris' Hawk who needs a good home.
I wish I could afford to take him as a companion for Tessy
since we lost India. I just don't have enough in the freezer for
Tessy let alone another bird. Dang. Oh well.

If it's just booze & t'backy they'll have more time on their hands to hunt us down like the dogs we are.  

 

  With all the budget cuts lately they probably have more than can handle already and are spread too thin to be much of a threat.
 
 


 
 Remember these are government workers we're talking about.

Hmm, didn't know that:
"The goal of ATF's Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement Programs in order to target, identify, and dismantle criminal enterprises with ties to violent crime, that traffic illicit liquor or contraband tobacco in interstate commerce; seize and deny their access to assets and funds; and prevent their encroachment into the legitimate alcohol or tobacco industry.
 As of January 24, 2003, The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau (TTB), is responsible for all inquiries in regards to the manufacture, wholesale and importation of alcohol and tobacco, regulating the alcohol and tobacco industries and Special Occupational Tax (SOT) and the collection of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Ammunition Excise Taxes imposed on manufactures and importers of these products."

Just the herbal extracts, then. You don't ferment those, you just simmer them and capture the steam. At least that's what you tell ATF. One letter removed from WTF. Probably why they're BATF now.

I didn't trust that I would be able to stay on the right side of all of that stuff. In the end, apparently I am not a gangster.

You can run it through a filter though. That is legal and does work to remove impurities as well. But the time, energy and materials involved aren't really worth it unless it's a hobby. Just buy the good stuff.  

 
that's my problem

i just go out and buy it

and by it i mean scotch, rum and vodka on occasion

for the home user I expect it would probably re-introduce more impurities. I was looking at a still that advised starting with wine or some other product that had already fermented a bit. I dunno.
