If you're ready for a new kind of DIY challenge, consider building your own copper still, which will allow you to distill your own spirits for DIY whiskey, vodka, gin, or brandy. (Or tequila, I guess...if you can get your hands on a giant agave piña.)This isn't a build-from-scratch project, but rather a kit Colorado-based Clawhammer Supply. If your comfortable with pipe soldering (which you are, even if you've never tried it - it's totally doable), you can build the still, attach some basic plumbing parts from the home center [hello, garden hose] and you're on your way to making your own moonshine.
Speaking of which, you'll want to check the permit and legal situation about home distillation for your state before your start brewing. But once you're set and got this thing built, it's all DIY small batch spirits from there.
