SHTF Brewing thread. Any recipes for simple alcoholic beverages made from scratch from simple ingredients welcome.
[link to www.thesneeze.com]
(Link is to a recipe for prison hooch)

This recipe cracked me up, and got me thinking. I used to brew my own beer, it's a fairly simple process with all the modern ingredients available for the home brewer.
What if those ingredients weren't available?
So, have you ever made some kind of "wine" from anything?

Mead! I make it all the time, I use 15lbs honey, 6 gallons of water and a pack of yeast, even bakers yeast works if I can't get a hold of wine yeast. You could always buy and propagate the yeast yourself

Well I use a glass carboy, 6.5 gallons. Sterilize, warm honey up so it flows, put into carboy, add water to about an inch below the neck. Keep everything sterile that you touch and do not let fruitflies into it once mixed with water. I use the sterilized carboy cleaning brush to mix the honey and water and oxygenate it good. Add happy(live or activated) yeast, put a water lock(ventable) on that bad boy and wait a month. Make sure everything is lukewarm, even the room, too cold and fermentation could screw up, too hot you kill your yeast

If you live near a friendly apple orchard and have access to a press and a clean 55 gal food grade drum making cider is safe and simple.... allow some to freeze on a cold January night and make "cider jack" for medicinals and a hootin tootin buzzz!

I like it to be simple, some people sterilize the honey(kill the yummy enzymes), some people add all kinds of flavoring crap like orange peels. I just think how did the early Vikings do it? Honey and water, and if you add enough yeast and kick off the fermentation properly you don't even need to sterilize anything

Actually, while not a christian, I have a deep faith in a loving creator.
As to having a drinking problem, you're entitled to your opinion.
Your tone shows a very typical amount of christian charity I must say. That's why I'll never call myself one again.

Also, you owe me 10 bucks.

When I lived up north we used to make a wine from "Gaultheria procumbens" winter green or some people call them tea berries. They are found in most northern forest. Crush 1 qt berries, add 1 gallon of H2O, add yeast. Let sit in cool dark spot for 30 days. Strain out pulp. Note: There are some mild halucingenic effects with this brew.
