    Bee pollen is better yeast than UJSSM also pollen gives a wonderful fragrance to mead or Vodka

    I never have distilled or made vodka but I have made Barenjager Honey Liqueur!
    That was sure good.
    There are many recipes out there you can find.
    I started with 1 Leader of 151 Proof Vodka then added some of the following;
    Ginger graded, Nutmeg, Lemon rind, lemon slices, cinnamon, Vanilla Bean man are they expensive, Vanilla Chai, about 30oz. Honey, high quality of course along with some other ingredients.
    After blinding I let it set seven to eight weeks Boy it was good, strong but good.
    I took some to a Christmas party one time and shared, it was a Hit!

    I believe you can have a still for making fuel for your car. Add some flavoring and you can drink it also. Have not tried it yet but, your local wine beer making supply place should sell all the equipment to make it just use it as "fuel".

    You cannot legally distill any alcohol without a permit. Yes, you can get a permit, if you follow the rules. If you get an industrial permit, the alcohol will have to be denatured. You really don't want to drink that.

    http://www.ttb.gov/spirits/faq.shtml#s3

    Spirits may be produced for non-beverage purposes for fuel use only without payment of tax, but you also must file an application, receive TTB's approval, and follow requirements, such as construction, use,records and reports.

    So what about this http://www.fueldistillation.com/

    PURPOSE. The application is completed by a person (applicant) who
    would like to establish a plant to produce, process, and store, and use or
    distribute distilled spirits to be used exclusively for fuel purpose under 26
    U.S.C. 5181. Distilled spirits means only ethanol or ethyl alcohol. The
    production of methanol does not require a permit from the Alcohol
    and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. The production of distilled spirits
    from petroleum, natural gas, or coal is not allowed by the Alcohol Fuel
    Producer's Permit. http://www.fueldistillation.com/alcoholpermit.pdf

    eliahu, Thank You for sharing,

    I hope the local beer and liquor store where I got some Barenjager from can get some of this for me. I don't drink much liquor but vodka would be my choice if was to have some so honey vodka sounds delicious. If I get some I will report back. The labor intensive part of brewing with honey is understood. I have rushed some home brewed beer with honey in it and it wasn't quite ready. The mead took over a year on one batch and then 2 years on the other batch. It takes attention. Do you have to age the honey vodka for a while?

    Saw him on TV in a Vermont products spot.

    I dont know him in person but it would be interesting to speak to him. Basicly true Honey Vodka is the drink which is made of High quality multiflwoer honey. of course you need to ferment it, then get mead, put it into the distilller and distill then .

    I distill it only once and get about 40-50 volume alcohol(80-100proof) than cut it upto 40 volume. if you distill it twice it will loose aroma. i have my own custom copper distiller. it contains Boliler,evaporation system and cooler. i dont have finnancing to enlarge the production because it requires a lot of money to invest in this project

    Eliahu thanks for the reply.
    I have a tip for you to try.
    If you collect the liquid that remained in the pot after the distillation, and use it instead of water, in your next batch, you will have much more aroma and taste in your next final product.
    At first try a 50-50 liquid-water mixture, and then you decide.

    Yes, exactly. You see the more of the essential oils, remain in the liquid.

    Drakos is right, just keep using the same backset. The flavor will keep getting better
