NPR has featured reviews (good ones) of Max Watman's new book "Chasing the White Dog", I showed up at Big Daddy's and tried Buffalo Trace's White Dog.
CHASING THE WHITE DOG: An Amateur Outlaw’s Adventures in Moonshine by Max Watman (Simon & Schuster, 9781416571780).
“This book is a good ol’ time! A heady mix of history, personal narrative, how-to, road tripping, taste-testing, legend-meeting and more. It’s a fun taste of moonshine and the people around it, from the backwoods of Appalachia to the gritty nip joints of Philadelphia. Even for those with no interest in NASCAR. Fun, informative, and—dare I say—inspiring?”
Max Watman is a celebrated journalist and an unrepentant lover of moonshine. In this perfect moonshine primer, he chronicles his hilarious attempts to distill his own moonshine—the essential ingredients and the many ways it can all go wrong—from his initial ill-fated batch to his first successful jar of ‘shine.
i suggest you taste it from a Mason/Ball jar... read on!
