I guess you have had no replies on this one......I was kinda interested on making some (hooch) myself.....There is bound to be some kind of recipe where you can use corn syrup, molasses, honey, oats, sweet feed, I will keep my ears open, if you hear of anything let me know.whatsup717 said:Hello I am looking for recipes like granpa made , without all the shop bought stuff, for beer or wine .

My Grandpa used to make his own beer. Very primitive and he used potatoes - I'd have to ask my dad how the process went. I was just a little kid - but remember it being a very salty taste.t1master said:alot of the old timers have taken their recipies to the grave. i hear stories about my grandfathers making their own shine, but nobody knows the recipes.
