    Man, when I saw "DIY" I was hoping it meant something different

    Yeah, me too. I was thinking, "How cool is that? I wonder if it suddenly became legal."

    With people able to create "craft beers" in their own homes without becoming licensed, I think that legislators need to look at changing the laws of the land. Even with the aging required, I think it would be a lot of fun to try crafting my own bourbon and/or whiskey . . . if it were legal.

    The 55-year-old was a master distiller at Maker’s Mark for more than 13 years and now produces WhistlePig rye whiskey
