about important issues on the subject of Ethanol

 

Peggy’s Perception of Participation

in the Robert Warren Forum

Fuel ethanol production requires dedication, study, science, and care.  Only people who want to practice safe and reasonable practices should attempt personal production through any distillation method.  

Safety has always been my first and foremost concern for practitioners of this art and science.  Rules and regulations are in place to protect both the operator and the public.  If hobbyist distillers practice unsafe, unwise, or impatiently, they can certainly impact the ‘rights’ of others.  Read, re-read, and study Robert’s directions.  Then if you have a question or a problem, post it to the forum.  Many people who are lurking can and will come forth if and when they can assist others.

Please feel free to join in the discussions.  We are not here to argue.  If and when a different perspective can be presented, polite communications can challenge the intellect and share ideas without becoming an adversary to the person who is trying to assist in the learning curve.  And these learning curves take up all up a notch so that we can solve personal distilling questions and become more self-sufficient.  Like all education, once a person obtains knowledge, it is his/ hers to keep.  We are forming a brotherhood/ sisterhood or family as Gilles likes to say.

New distillers may not necessarily make a profit from the beginning.  Education/ learning takes time and money.  Many people like the idea of distilling yet cannot dedicate the necessary effort to make it work.  The same is true of gardening or raising children.  Therefore, before jumping off and expecting your new friends and family to walk you through your lessons, please read Robert’s web site and the rich resource on Gilles’ web site, read the manual (and re-read the manual), then look over the archives.  Next locate an excellent craftsman to help you if you are not ‘construction inclined’ when it comes to building the still.  Don’t worry about how much money it cost to run the first batch.  Wait… gather up your tools and supplies, and do it right and by directions.  And after proving your proficiency… then… branch out with variations on a theme.

Compliance with local, state, and federal regulations helps the rest of us avoid regulators and/ or officers of the law becoming concerned about our practices.  

      • Be safe.  
      • Follow directions.  
      • Follow the rules.  
      • And best wishes for much success.

Peggy
