I agree. If you are looking for cheap booze, ferment some sugar (dollar general has a lot of sugar based products) in a clean container.
I'm looking to find 4-5 "go-to" recipes over the course of several years of trying out different varieties. This isn't a business and I don't claim for it to be cheap, this is a hobby/mission.
