Distillation IS illegal. I'd look into it a bit more before assuming.

Distillation is illegal is correct, but you can still make a alcoholic beverage, it won't be hooch more like fruit beer/malt beverege/wine...

Consume. Excrete, but don't flush. Wait a few months, stirring occasionally. Hooch is served.

without knowing what you're doing you're likely to get some terrible, hangover-inducing stuff.

Yes, you can brew your own beer and bottle your own wine. But this isnt about what ATOT thinks this is classified as, but rather what the ATF thinks. Would YOU want to risk it? They might view this as distillation rather then bottling or wine/beer. Hence me saying I'd look into it a bit more before assuming brewing hooch isnt considered distillation. If its not, hell go for it.
But, I've never been one to risk prison based on assumptions. I rpefer cold hard yes or no I could go to prison. Not to say the risk of prison has stopped me from doing something, but you know what they say. An ounce of prevention.....

"You really need to start doing things for yourself. Your a big boy, time to leave noah and go out on your own."

I'm not saying it IS illegal. Like I said, our Generous ATF (Nazi's ) have said we can brew beer, bottle wine but CANNOT distill spirits. Now, chances are your would be classified as a beer. I dont know what the qualifiers of one vs the other is, I assume its based on alcohol content. But again, if your not the kind to commit felonies, I'd avoid doing it an buy a regular "Nazi approved" brewing kit so as to not end up on the wrong side of the law.
Now, if you dont mind felonies.... homedistiller.org It takes a minute to load though.

there are at least a few other books that have come from Alaskan residents that deal with building your own equipment for brewing/distilling. Pretty interesting stuff.

I think you are confusing the process of fermentation with that of distillation,
you can make any type of beer you want (via fermentation) as long as you do NOT attempt to separate the alcohol from the mix, once you begin extracting pure alcohol from a brew (via distillation) you break the law, up until that point any alcoholic beverage made by pure fermentation of fruit, malt, sugar, etc. is 100% legal.

Plus to distill you need a pretty elaborate contraption which evaporates only the alcohol from the mix, forces it through a condenser and filters. You probably seen the pictures of the moonshine barrels which drip pure alcohol from a tube...

My dad used to distill back in the good ol USSR, but since he was a scientist and did it at work for 'work' reltated activities he had no problems.
