Going to fire up the still this weekend!
Yep, just to prove that I'm a bit crazy, I do indeed bootleg alcohol... Yes it must conjure up all kinds of images and perverse thoughts, but its not really like that at all... I make pure (almost, its 98.6%) moonshine... I make it during the day so sometimes I call it sunshine, but whatever...
I have to work a lot this weekend so we will see how much I get done. Out of five gallons of sugar, water, and champagne yeast I procure approximately one gallon of pure alcohol, I mix that with good old fashioned creek water and get around two gallons of one hundred proof moonshine. I've had all kinds of descriptions of what it tastes like and smells like but, to me it is very sweet and gives you a nice tequila like buzz... I enjoy it! Anyway, wish me luck!
