From those on here that have tried it, they say it does taste like ****

And most people asking to make the kind of stuff you are asking about on this forum have turned out to be under age just trying to make some hooch to get wasted off of.

If making some nasty fermented sugar to get blitzed is what you are trying to do, go ahead. Just don't be surprised when real homebrewers try to give you pointers on how to make a real, good tasting beer.

You came here looking for information... don't get all crabby when you are given information that you don't want to hear.
If you are looking to get schlitzed on the cheap, try some everclear...or Mad Dog.

Let me say this.. I once was one of those kids who figured out that I could put sugar and water and yeast together, produce alcohol and then distill it to make it strong. Let me tell you, it tasted bad even then.. it tasted like i was drinking perfume. The esters stay with it, and trust me they are not good ones. My hooch was ignitable so it was deffinately strong, and that was a homemade still (its not expensive. a pan and copper tubing). However, its a waste of time money and illegal. Make up 2.5 gallons of 8% apfelwein and that should be enough to get you hammered and a cool little science project as well. If you just want to get hammered though.. go buy a 30 of stones or 30 or stones ice. 12 bucks never went to waste on a 30 of stones if you were just lookin to get hammered.

Only two people mentioned it being illegal... and yes, it is illegal in the US but he said he is not going to distill it.

IT WILL TASTE TERRIBLE, IT IS A WASTE OF TIME.
I encourage you to experiment, but I also say, if you are saying you are not going to distill it, then why do it at all.

I just have to say that the label design for the package is what made me laugh most:

his money, his product, his time = not my problem. Give it a try and tell me about it. Maybe you'll figure out a good hooch that you can mix with other beverages for parties on the cheap. To each their own.

No, maybe i'm a boarder-line alcoholic, but i was just saying that certainly not everyone who wants to make cheap moonshine is a kid, more likely the person is an alcoholic.

yea that was my plan. mix it with gatorade, cola, anything strong that will disguise the taste. and it's way cheaper than buying a bottle of popov or some cheap liquor like that. i mean it's 6.5 gallons for a $10 pack of yeast plus whatever the sugar costs..

btw xcrusader did you use carbon filters? b/c i think that will improve the taste much more than distilling. eta: can anyone answer my questions in post 8 or does nobody know?
