They must not have paid enough of a kickback to the Sheriff to keep him off their back.

My uncle was cooking during the Depression- quit when he thot the Feds were getting too close. Dad always said that"s how he paid for his farm. He"s written up in the book, MN 13- which was moon named after the strain of open-pollinated corn that was used.

Back years ago they raided a still close by. They had been watching it for some time, but when they raided it they only found a few barrels of mash. Which they destroyed. Later the owner sued them for distroying his pig feed.

My grandpa and his brother and their uncle had amassed 3000+ acres in the 1920?s and early 30?s from boot legging, evidently it drawed too much attention and the Revenuers caught up to them, they didn?t use corn , they were making rye whiskey here in south Alabama while they were boot legging, I was told stories while growing up that their liquor was being transported north all the way back to Ohio, hard times during the Great Depression and farming or share cropping didn?t provide for their families, money was good and they got greedy

I'm surprised they dumped it out on the ground.

Thought they would have called hazmat for disposal and added the cost to the charges, if they can find them.

Not as much market for shine anymore, most have converted over to making meth.

If you get outside the large city's a lot of people still live a simple life, like time gone by.....That is the best way I can say it....I am up near Huntsville where the guy you are talking with just may really be a rocket scientist...My son is a engineer but I have brothers who it would not surprise at all if they were making moonshine and more.

It must be a regional thing.

I never hear about stills being raided or any stories about them. Maybe they just don't make the news.

But meth, it's bad! Seems to be a rural, small town thing. Combination of lack of enforcement, plenty of takers, boredom, get rich quick and die young.
