How many times have you said to yourself, "I'm just doing the Wall Street thing for now- one day I'm going to quit this shit and do something that fulfills me- like brew moonshine"? Probably so many that your colleagues, friends, and family are sick of hearing about it. You've never actually done it because you're weak or scared or haven't yet found the perfect recipe. Unlike former portfolio manager Ed Tiedge, who in 2008 was faced with a choice-- look for a new gig on the Street following the implosion of his firm or quit the biz to live out his dream of distilling vodka and gin with hints of things like honey, juniper berries, rose petals, lavender, galangal, and orange peel. He went with the latter and will perhaps inspire you to brew that first batch of illegal sauce today.
