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

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.

That is brilliant. But some industrial cleanser alcohols, at least here, are "drinkable" that is the reason such swatches are hard to come by. Sounds like a sweet agorist patent though, I could move those.

From what I recall, bootleggers intentionally added wood alcohol to their product in order to increase the volume and to provide a more ginny taste to it. Sort of like drug sellers will often cut their product with everything from talcum powder to chalk to their stuff.

Right.

So does anyone have any "off the grid tips and tricks" unrelated to being slaves to poison?

You'd die of a heart attack before you even finished that case.

The problem is...eventually you run out of fuel for the generator(s). Without climate control/ventilation and pumping the ground water out, they quickly become uninhabitable.

I learned that you can't power two space heaters in a travel trailer from a 14ga extension cord.
But, that's not really -off- the grid, is it.

I had a nice fireplace for a few seconds. Fortunately, my Dad made me carry a fire extinguisher with me.

I may or may have not built a tea kettle still as a quick science project. You know, for kids.

I would "SERIOUSLY" not recommend using your propane kitchen stove as a heat source. I may or may have not engulfed half of my kitchen (including myself) in a big blue flame ball for a fraction of a second.

No permanent damage but I may or may have not left an odd yeast and burnt hair smell in the house for a couple weeks.

lol

Truth: my roommate and I were sterilizing home made tattoo needles in our oven in preparation for me to tattoo him. I could have sworn that our pal said "boil them in alcohol in the stove in a baking tray"... what he'd actually said was to boil them in bleach. We heard a poof, opened the oven and a fireball came right on out, much to our shock.

It weren't a smart thing to do.

I haven't built a still... yet.
