This is a very reasonably priced course, well crammed with info, and in a day you get to see a full grain-to-glass production of a rye-based vodka in a craft scale distillery. Even though I had taken other courses before, I felt this was worthwhile to see Steve's approach to his operation.

I also went to this class recently. Very much enjoyed the class as well as all the people who attended it. I have read a lot of info on distilling and the class brought it all together. I would recommend it the class especially for beginners.
