Hello folks. I've brewed beer and wine, but it's been awhile. When I brewed beer, it was with canned syrup. I did play a bit, and made alcoholic root beer... was good : ) I sucked at ales, but did ok with dark beers... anyway. I got to thinking about doing something that is likely illegal... so don't know how many comments I'll get here... but I've considered getting my brew stuff out of mothballs and using cheap o store sugar and brewing a wort with the intention of distilling the resulting brew. My question is, SuperMarket purchased Dry Yeast.... sufficient? Or would you suggest something better? Something better able to stand a higher alcohol content? OR, once fermentation is done, distilling off the alcohol and then re-fermenting what's left?
