When I was around age 12, living with my grandmother, I once attempted to make alcohol in secret with minimal knowledge. I cleaned a 5 gallon plastic milk jug, attempted to sterilize it with semi-boiling water, then I added three large cartons of strawberry nectar along with several cups of pure cane sugar dissolved into semi-syrup by boiling the sugar in water. I didn't measure anything properly, didn't consider the addition of a yeast culture, and then capped the jug with a balloon. I hid the jug for several weeks, and when the balloon would seem too large I would release the pressure and reseal it quickly. Eventually I noticed that indeed began to smell like alcohol, so one day when my uncle visited, I showed it to him, and asked him what he thought, what I need to do next, ect. He thought it was funny, and said I was trying to make "prison hooch". He said I would need to eventually strain it through panty hose or coffee filters, something I couldn't do in secret. Eventually gramma found out about it. She, too, thought it was funny, and put it up on a high shelf. After a month I asked when we could try it. I remember her and mom opening it and laughing, since it smelt strongly of alcohol. Eventually they told me that it was unsafe to drink, because there could have toxins that grew in the mixture, etc. They poured it out.

My question is, if I were to attempt to make rough hootch again using nectar, would anyone care enough to share any tips, such as what yeast culture I should use, any risks to consider, any links to share? Thanks.

You will have to measure how much sugar is in the nectar, it might be written on the carton or whatever. To get 10~14% alcohol you need at least 1KG of sugar.
If you put too much sugar content it will overload the yeast and kill it or just take forever to brew.

Here's my recipes (1 month brewing time):
1KG Honey + 4L + 2 Bread Yeast + Handful of Raisins = 10~14% Alcohol
1KG Sugar + 5L + 2 Bread Yeast + Handful of raisins = 14% Alcohol

There are natural cleaners for homebrew like 1-STEP , PBW, or Oxiclean. You need to clean it thoroughly or you just end up making something that makes you puke. Pitch the yeast when the mix is lukewarm and always keep it brewing at room temperature for best results (you can wrap it with a blanket or towel and keep it near a heater)

My favorite recipe for a fast drink: amazingmead.wordpress.com/2012/02/24/orange-spiced-short-mead-drinkable-in-3-weeks/

You can do it in secret btw, i dont know how much gunk the starberry nectar produces, but with pure sugar straining is not necessary. I usually let the yeast settle to the bottom and drink it straight.

when I was in prison we made hooch using our sugar packets, orange juice, oranges.

just put it all in a garbage bag and let it sit for a few days.

basically if you don't use yeast, you are relying on ambient bacteria that does the same thing. from what I understand these bacterias can't make it as alcoholic as brewers yeast can and also contribute some other crap as well.

the reason it doesn't kill you or make you sick is because once it gets above a certain alcohol percentage, the other bacteria can't survive

This is mostly true. It's more because of the acidity than the alcohol. If the pH is low enough (acidic enough), then there's virtually no pathogenic bacteria that can grow. So if you're starting with a neutral (pH7) brew, then over time, the alcohol and other metabolites lower the pH to around 4, which is safe to drink.

With the orange juice, I'd guess it's always acidic enough to be safe. When people get sick from pruno, it's usually because they're starting with something not acidic enough, like bread or potatoes.

Don't talk to me or do or ban me if this is inappropriate for the board idk idk

Evan Williams green label. Ezra Brooks Black, whatever. These are correct in what real whiskey is. Don't get me wrong, picking up a bottle of Jack is fine, if it were
cheaper in price than Evan Williams. I do like Bushmills as well.

Loved this stuff from the first drink.

Yeah I do think it's pretty good to can't decide if I like the black or green better

I'm still keeping my eyes out for white label just haven't found it yet

My chest hurts

It's just the "bottled in bond" version, basically aged a minimum of 4 years, produced in one state "under government supervision" allegedly, all the other rules of bourbon, plus being 100 proof. On the surface you'd think it's just some marketing label but I've become a big fan of the bottled in bond stuff

I'm a fan of higher proof whiskeys and I rarely buy anything under 43% myself. So to me the EW white label is one of the best bang for your buck whiskeys available. I'm about to pour some of the single barrel after I finish this glass of rittenhouse

Ever think of the sober people?

Yea, it's the opposite of what they may think of heavy drinkers. You do miss a lot if you drink pretty heavily. Even if you work and keep things basically together.

I started thinking some time back where, all these people who live day to day without getting hammered, it's gotta far more simple to live without being a drinkard. Accomplish much more even if they aren't really doing much more
than working and just living their lives.

Yeah I sometimes think about how much I've accomplished and what more I could've done the last 11 years.. But a few more glasses and I think about where I am now and how I can make the best of now. As in right now. Fuck about tomorrow morning.

I can't shred waves if I get plastered every other day. So yes, if your passion is something like surfing you can't be an hardcore alcoholic. Or maybe you can if really young, like, in your early 20s... but even in that case your balance would be shit compared to a sober well trained guy (unless you have godlike genetics I guess)

SR 40 for cheap. Other trivial mentions.

SO, the colorado laws of selling alcohol has changed. One can buy high strength beer in convince stores. Grocery. So, people have not actually caught on to this. I think. Or
have they, by now.

Anyway, SR was selling for $1.25 a 40. That is like cheap. At a convince store.

A case, 12. Would be around, 15 bones. Normally would be around 2.78 to 3 bucks a 40 at a liquor store.

So in my travels, at state parks, etc. People are kinda drunken, (like in the past) happy, but now.

Dude, I left a few things, did you see a beer and a cell phone? Yea, right there. Ohh thanks man.

So troublesome, 3.2 beer does mostly nothing for most. Which is allowed in most parks.
But now, enforcing law for possessing or consuming over 3.2 in some public places seems pretty, umm. Difficult to enforce. I casually mean beer.

Remember cops in the 80s, technology. People used to dump 6% beer into 3.2 cans. To try to fool authorities, and police would check the content. Just and old trick.

Not sure of the long term effects of 'full strength beer being sold at gas stations, convince store, supermarkets. But, it seems, authorities have kinda lowered their authority, rational
of adults drinking higher-test beer.

My overall point is, higher test beer, is over whelming the 3.2 beer market. One can still get coors light, just as well. The law, has taken many years to pass in Colorado. To sell high strength beer in supermarkets. Convince stores. Well see how it goes.

side from SR, ST. Ides if still around is nice.

Plastic in beer containers is nothing new. It's been around since the 70s in the US. I actually find it, in Reserve even better to manage than glass. In the corporate world, it is cheaper to produce, shipping, weight etc.

As for the whiny shatter proof things. Most parks and beaches do not allow glass containers.

just get a big insulated metal bottle and put your booze in that. no shame, no glass, literally hides booze in plain sight. nobody will even notice you're carrying the thing since they're so common.
