Moonshine in them thar' hills !


Not combustible dust but quite an interesting story of an illegal moonshine still being busted up in Georgia's northwestern hills by the Walker County Special Operations Group.

Geez...what a waste of perfectly good product. This moonshine was produced by fermenting corn and barley the old fashioned way but instead of wooden barrels the moonshiners used plastic 50 gallon drums.

If we remember back awhile, Granny of the Beverly Hillbillies had her own moonshine still next the swimming pool. Of course she only drank it by thimbleful to cure here ailing rheumatism. Jed didn't hold much care for it as it made his truck run sort of funny.

Heres a photo gallery of the bust provided by the Chattanooga Times Free Press
