Making strong spirit alcohol in the home conjures up thoughts of moonshine with its associated dangerous levels of methanol and prompts the question “How do I know that the alcohol I am making is safe to drink?”. So we went to the UK’s leading Brewing Research Institute (BRi) for their opinion.
We asked BRi to find out exactly how much methanol was in home produced spirit alcohol made using the very simplest distillation equipment (the water still – no ‘heads’ removed) and we compared this with methanol levels found in commercial spirits, the results are shown in the table below:
Add spring water
or make a mixed drink
home-made wine may be legal in your country, but it isn't in america.
You are giving false information! Damn communist! Both Moonshine and home made wine are legal in the USA, however with out a license you are not aloud to sell it, license differ state to state, and you also have to go through the FDA before putting your product on the market"plus a other things"! But to make your self for personal use you need no license, and it's not illegal, some states limit the amount you are aloud to store, to keep people from selling it under the table!

Most of the people on here are just crazy! xD I wouldn't mix it!

And make sure you blow all the air out of your mouth when you take the shot or chug a mug "like me!" I have beat the horrible effects of some moonshine that taste close to rubbing alcohol by using these tecniques!
For some reason the stuff I am drinking tonight just keeps getting stronger after every cup I pour! My tongue is about burnt off to! I think this stuff is about 160 - 170! lol
aluminum in small amounts is ok. i can go out and eat Aluminum and nothing will hapen
Put a highball glass into an empty, clean sink. Add 3-5 ice cubes. Fill glass 3/4 full with your favorite mixer Pour 2 oz. of moonshine down the sink drain. Top off glass with your favorite commercially produced liquor. Enjoy.
