How to make Hard Liqour, Wine and Biofuel (E85).
is it like homemade biogasoline?
Hey, thanks for the detailed directions! I've found that another cause of slow fermentation can also be too much cold. When I ferment in my basement in the winter, I have this problem, so I have to move it to a warmer place, like my kitchen. I'm glad you emphasized sterility, since that's very important! As far as yeast, a 'turbo yeast' will give you up to about 20 percent alcohol. I found a great new book called 'How to Master Moonshine' that gives a lot of details on this. There's a whole chapter on freeze distillation that tells you how to concentrate the alcohol without needing a still at all. If you freeze it for a day or so, you can just pour off the alcohol since it won't freeze, but the water will! All you need is a plastic jug! Just use plain sugar, a little yeast energizer or nutrient, and a champagne or turbo yeast and you can make vodka! If you want other kinds of alcohol, the book has a recipe section so you can make lots of different drinks! I got my copy on Amazon, but I don't know if it's available any where else or not.
J....I don't think that's accurate. Drinking methanol is a different kind of alcohol than ethanol and is not safe for consumption. It can lead to blindness and even death in larger amounts. I would recommend avoiding any alcohol except ethanol.
