Re: Pottery, Clay and everything!

Greetings, all!

Although not in period style (and I'd be interested in finding out more
about alembics as well), you can read more about the modern science
of distillation (which, as we all know, is illegal yadda yadda yadda) in
these references:

Sweet and Hard Cider, by Annie Proulx and Lew Nichols 
(ISBN 0-88266-352-6) - contains some great info on making hard
cider, as well as instructions on how to build a rough-and-ready still
in your kitchen using a pressure cooker.

The Lore of Still-Building - I haven't read this, but it is supposed to be
an interesting, if sometimes overly political discussion of the history of
stills and 'shine in America.
