I only make wine but I know people who moonshine
You need sats, super cheap terrible tasting wine. Something like 12 kg sugar little flower or malt 6 packets yeast around 25 liters water. I recommend a bubble check valve but most Norwegians just put a cover over most of the bucket with a lid to allow a small pressure out.
Most wait about a week before cooking.
To separate out the alcohol they usually use a homemade stainless steel "hjemmebrennaperat" or still which uses a heat source to warm up the sats just warm enough to boil out the alcohol (78 degrees Celsius). A collecting system mounted over a sealed boiler usually using water from a sink to cool it( If the cooling system stops working the room is filled with alcohol gas and the room can be explosive). After the alcohol is collected they run it though a coal filtering process and water it down to 40% usually.

I made some nice mead, it took longer than that to ferment. Interesting.

Ah, one of those important datapoints. Thank you.

I hope you mean charcoal, coal is pretty nasty stuff. Of course, it would impart an unique taste.

I have only assisted..... I tried to give what little I knew..... I looked up 78 degrees on a Norwegian websight .....I don't actually know shit...... I Fucking tried to stick a disclaimer in the start...... I'm sorry, wahhhh.
No, Smile I do make wine though. And I have done some welding on other peoples "water distilling machines". But that's it. In Norway though, a lot of people do make their own moonshine. they call charcoal- "cl" and you can buy it at the same place they sell wine making equipment here.

Many of our visitors and customers have read our Tip ODa Week episodes discussing the homemade generator made from a horizontal shaft engine and a car alternator. Now build a generator with a lawn mower engine!

As you might remember, our first generator was built using a horizontal shaft engine.  After many attempts, we have successfully completed the construction of a generator using a common lawn mower engine, the type that is sitting in your back yard right now.

The insanity of prohibition is demonstrated again.

In this case ridiculously high sin tax. Many have died or went blind from bad smuggled wood alcohol as well.

You don't need a still to make some very potent alcohol that is if you only want something to drink.  Look up rice and raisin wine.

I believe it "should" be possible to make some dip-tabs, like the doctor uses to test for sugar in urine, that could be dipped in wine/whisky/beer to turn black in the presence of wood alcohol, even to turn green if all there is is ethyl alcohol.

Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing? Maybe I should look into contracting with a chemical company to make some of them.

I have a treadle generator, a puny 10 watt solar panel, and a giant Xantrex battery.

I'll have my porn when society collapses. Or when I snap and go Richard Proenneke.
