In one sense, making any alcoholic beverage is easy, because the yeast do all the work. Alcoholic beverages all start with yeast and with sugar for the yeast to eat . For moonshine, what you want is the cheapest sugar you can find . They work tirelessly to make our bread and our booze, then uncomplainingly give up their lives that we may eat and drink. If you’re going to make your own sugar solution to grow the yeast in, though, you can just make the sugar solution’s strength match what the yeast can convert before they die.Give it 10 to 25 days (depending on various things, but mainly how warm it is).
Making moonshine, though, all you need to do is distill the stuff. Conveniently, an old-fashioned pressure cooker is a pot with a hole in the lid. If you’ve got some room, you can just make the tube long enough and you don’t need to do anything extra to condense the alcohol. Alternatively, you can run your tube through a sleeve and run cold tap water through the sleeve. Make sure the hole can’t get plugged up, which could lead to your still exploding.

Pretty soon you’ll have almost pure alcohol dripping into your jar. At some point a sample taken from the tube will no longer taste of alcohol, and you’re done. Otherwise you could make some pretty good booze (well, let’s say barely drinkable booze) for the price of a few pounds of sugar. And yes, they just make the equioment themselves – which is cheaper and just as effective. One important thing to throw away, what, the first and last 5% of the distillate?
In fact, the reason one shouldn’t drink “wood alcohol” or methanol, is because when your liver tries to break it down like good alcohol (ethanol), it turns it into formaldehyde instead. It’s not a good idea to run off to set up a still in the backyard without giving a thought to the dangers which may be many. There are also plenty of sites on-line that specialize in homebrew supplies, and any good-sized town will likely have a local source. Maybe one of the other regulars can offer some useful suggestions—but they’re only likely to see new comments (not replies to old comments). However, the alcohol boiling temperature is around 190 degrees but it depends on the kind of alcohol you want to make. Just wondering if there are any dangers in the above process?
The old way to make methanol was through a process called “destructive distillation,” in which you basically operate your still directly on woodchips (rather than the must), which is why it’s called wood alcohol. Most of the methanol posionings must have resulted from someone finding industrial methanol and not understanding (or not caring) that it was poison. Because it was traditionally done with hard cider, this seems like a good place to mention “jacking,” which is the name for increasing the alcohol concentration by partial freezing. Just do some “quality control” each time and bring it in once you get it the way you want it. It’s also free if you live somewhere where the overnight temperatures fall below freezing, and uses a lot less energy than running a still. All you need to do is add enough that your yeast overwhelms any wild yeast that happen to get in. It’s true that you’ll have a weaker starting point for your distilation, but as long as energy is cheap, that’s not such a big deal. But moonshine is especially easy because running it through a still makes all the delicate balancing of flavors that mark a great beer or wine irrelevant. The sugar for beer usually comes from malted barley (although other grains are also used). That lets wine makers work with natural fruit juices that have a high concentration of sugar and get a higher concentration of alcohol before the yeast die of alcohol poisoning. There are lots of good books on making beer and making wine. Now, if you were making beer or wine you’d have several more steps: bottling, aging, etc. Modern pressure cookers won’t work as well, because they have a fancy valve to release the pressure, but with an old-fashioned one you just remove the weight and then fit the tube to the valve.
Lead is right out, as is putting the pieces together with solder that includes lead. Aside from the books you mentioned, can you point to any good online resources, especially for equipment and supplies?
When the boiling stops the second time you will have all of the ethanol. I would never break the law in a foreign country and drink illegal alcohol. I haven’t done this in a while, but getting rid of the “heads” and “tails” will get rid of nasty hangover-inducing compounds like aldehydes and ketones (related to alcohol, but poisonous). Those meters they used were very delicate, they could sniff out an extremely small percentage of alcohol in a stream. Use 12 pounds of sugar to 4 gallons of water plus turbo yeast, distill, then flavor after?
A substance with a lower boiling point than its pure constituents is called an azeotrope. If you’re into the 170-190 proof stomach churning gut rot they call alcohol, the lower the boiling temp. Plus it gives it a nice flavor to complement the taste of rubbing alcohol and liquid fire. Basically, you just leave a barrel of cider out overnight after the weather starts to fall below freezing, the pitch out whatever ice forms on the top.

You can repeat the process several times, getting your cider a little harder each time. All the extra sugar would do is lower your final yield (right?). I use 8 lbs of sugar in a 5 gal jug with a pack of turbo yeast and a small amount of yeast excellerator.

The electric moonshine still will keep the temperature to produce high-concentration spirit. Always check local laws, as they may differ from area to area. For me, this has been a highly dependable product with no adverse issues. The manufacturer suggests it can happen when new bottles smell like plastic. Filling the bottle to the very top is exactly the amount of water required to fill the distiller container right to the fill line. For me personally, the water comes out crystal clear, and tastes like snow melt when cold. Perhaps a better indicator of how well it works can be seen in the bottom of the pot at the end of a cycle. It’s a pity more people are not aware of the direct impact water quality has on their health. Therefore, we can provide you with the lowest prices and the greatest service. It is also legal to own a moonshine still, for display and show.
You may not produce alcohol with these stills unless you qualify as a distilled spirits plant.It is a little noisy so it’s best to turn it on as you walk out the door to go to work or turn it on at night and put it in a room where you won’t hear it. It’s supposed to take 4-6 hrs to distil one gallon of water. Come morning, the distiller was done and the water was surprisingly fresh and good tasting. This may depend on the water you are starting with, although in theory it should all turn out the same.
You don’t have to be a ‘wacko anti-fluoridation conspiracy theorist’ to appreciate home distilled water. That’s 1 gallon per day for a 175 adult, which is easy to do once you get into the habit. I use the water for everything from baby food mixing, to coffee.
