Green Light!

Well we now have both our Federal and State permits, so it is go time!  This week we began our first batch of corn whiskey mash - this mash will be the base for our moonshine and our bourbon.  The cuts we take straight off the still will be bottled directly as our Lakeside Moonshine, and the rest will be barrel aged to become our signature bourbon.  It is our hope that we can have our first bourbon release in about a year from now, which means I need to be patient!  Bummer...but it will be worth the wait!

So here are a few pics from the process:
