Ole james id dead now, but we had us some fine times back up triity valley making shine in all kinds of ways.
We tried corn, mollasses,spuds,fruit, and other esoteric recipes he has taken to the grave with him.
And yes he died of cirrossis? SP. but took the high dive on tuinols and his own good produc t.
the trick i always remembered was that if using fruit as a base, we didnt get any fusil oils.
Everything else was trickier because of the poisons.
fruit cant produce these and so we tried to get as much of it as possible in season.
I remember drinkin the Saki and spitting out the rice and rasins back into my glassto dunp back into the brew when getting a refill.
To say that saaki was a baaby would be about right.
But it just kept getting better and better in that 45 gallon drum.
Eventually it too went through the still.
the very best ive had is triple distilled "wedding shine"
but i digress sorry OP.
Fuel alcohol should be a lot easier to produce because a small engine wont go blind or die from it.
Though perhaps toxic fumes may be produced by the exhaust.
There is methyl and ethyl alchohols are there not sewww......
Which would be more pôwerful as fuel i wonder(efficient then)
I think it would be cool to see what kind of additives you could use to boost the power ratio like adding octane boost to gasoline........any idea how
