Laws in Louisiana about making whiskey?

I have looked online and can not find anything. Is it completely illegal or can you make a certain amount? And if the latter is the case anyone ever make some?

Without a permit, you can make some for "personal consumption"

I've made my own and my own beer. There used to be some archaic laws about how you can MAKE the alcohol, but you cannot DISTILL it. Kind of dumb b/c it all depended on the chemical process of what you were making.

I have have seen some stuff that said you could distill only a certain amount for personal consumption but not sure if that is the law or not.

I would imagine that as long as you are not selling or making a profit, you should be able to make it.

Cant you just heat up a regular pot of alcohol and make pure alcohol? I think I saw a video about it a while back. Put it in a pot, cook it, collect evaporated liquor, and drink it

What I have read there is very little methanol in it, and you just get rid of the first little bit and you are fine. I have seen some homemade still so yes you can but I don't think I trust myself just yet.

I think the guy on the video threw away the first little bit that came out. That's right, he threw away the first little bit and the last bit. He said he kept the middle stuff. It was some Russian dude, so I dont know how he judged the amount of "dirty" to be poured out

One of the most important things you will need is a hydrometer

It is illegal in the United States to distill any alcohol without the proper licenses.
