I don't know why I didn't think of that but that sounds like it would be the ****. Maybe even a stout?

Guess that's what a diet of cigarettes and shine will do to you. I would've guessed popcorn was 70+. Them thar hills are rough on ya.

More like a diet of carbon-monoxide.

Exactly. People who can't clearly realize this is fake are exactly why this show has ratings.
No, it has ratings because it's hilarious. It's The Dukes Of Hazard trying to appear real with a drunken hillbilly falling off the roof.

That could be a cop following us. We'd better gun it so they can bust us for speeding and see all the illegal ligger in the back.

Good stuff.

if you kill yourself it doesn't matter that you smoked and drank.

My comment was not directed towards how he killed himself, but the fact that the rough life he lived he looked a lot older than 61.

You can't use peels or (generally fruit) seed as they are too woody and priduce methanol, which you want to keep OUT of your mash. Methanol is cooked off in the heads and tossed but you still want to minimize their overall production. It's just a waste of yeast, fuel and on a smaller scale, pot space, to knowingly put woody stuff in your mash to produce unfriendly heads.

This is one of the reasons that fruit-based liquor is more expensive - labor intensive to remove apple seeds, etc for a comparably weak product.

I chuckle at the mashing process, as shown, on the show - adding corn and sugar DURING distillation to get more output?!? Now he must have SOME KIND of extra super turbo yeast. Mine tends to take 5-7days (not minutes).
