I dunno you tell me

Now, if you successfully made your moonshine alcohol, here are is how you properly ensure that the process went well and that you, in fact, made good moonshine:

1. First, smell it. If you notice a weird, chemical odor, do not drink it and proceed to the second step.

2. The best test is the spoon one. No matter if your moonshine smells or not weird, this test needs to be done: put some moonshine in a spoon and light it on fire. If your alcohol is:

a) Red: there is lead in it, so do not drink it.

b) Yellow: you risk getting blind, so not drink it.

c) Blue: best color to get, as it means you achieved your purpose of making good, safe, moonshine alcohol.

d) If it has no color: basically, if it does not burn, then your process did not go as scheduled and you obtained some liquidwhich is not proper moonshine. Again, do not drink it.

There are no better ways to create proper moonshine alcohol than to respect the above advices and to always trust the spoon test, which will never fail.

brings back memories of when me and another i tried our luck at making hooch for resale during sophomore or junior year of high school around 1999-2000. iirc our distillation procedure involved freezing the fermented mash in old mountain dew 2 liter bottles. the one person to sample it yacked immediately (and certainly not because it was potent/strong but because it tasted like embalming fluid). good luck, just watch out for the methanol content and dont drink and distill

Taxing alcohol is what governments do since the middle ages, since people will drink hooch even if it's expensive, which makes it a good revenue source.
The US is no exception. Making moonshine is a way to bypass that taxation, so governments try to ban it.

Plus, there's the whole "doing it wrong and going blind" thing.

I think government cares more about tax than anything. Im pretty sure growing tobbaco here is more illegal than growing weed for that reason.

tbh i've only had moonshine from one source, and it certainly did not impress me. but the person who sourced it was also disappointing so maybe it's a character issue?

The first 50ml you supposed to throw out or use for fuel. I might cut 100ml to be extra safe. That first bit has all the chemicals that make you go blind and they come off firt because they are more volatile than ethanol.

Methanol, its like an ethanol but cut in half and then grew an extra bit like a worm.

when i was in college we had a pet rooster that like just showed up at our house one day and he loved liquor and getting drunk he was the coolest pet. He'd just be drinking outta his tequila bowl and crowing his lil rear end off at like 3 in the afternoon and sometimes hed get so drunk he couldnt flap back up onto the garage door arm which is where he like d to sleep normally and would just sleep on the chair in the garage.
