      Brew for Distilling




      It is not difficult at all to have a decent brew right from your
      friendly supermarket or neighborhood grocery store.

      Here is the recipe for the "supermarket moonshine." The brew will
      ferment in about 4~5 days up to 12~14% alcohol in it. This will yield
      about 2.0 liters of 95% alcohol or about 6x750mL bottles of vodka at
      40% abv

      Ingredients to make up to 16 Liter brew (sugar volume included):

      White sugar=7.5LB (or 3.39kg or 1½ US bags)
      (get three bags of sugar to make two 16L washes)

      I/2 cup lemon juice

      "Rapid rise yeast" or "bread machine yeast"= 15~20
      gram (3 packets) Sold loose in glass jar or in vacuum sealed packets
      = 3~4 teaspoons

      Unsulphured molasses, sold in 12 oz glass jars=2~3 tablespoons

      1 8 oz. can tomato puree or paste.



      Procedure:

      Boil about 2~3 liters of tap water (about 1/2 gallon) and gradually
      dissolve sugar in it.

      Add lemon juice in the boiling sugar syrup and let it boil covered
      for 15 minutes.

      Cool the hot sugar syrup and top off with cold tap water up to 16
      liters>(4 gallons).

      Empty tomato puree and molasses in the wash while stirring.

      Sprinkle yeast evenly on the surface of the cooled wash, cover the
      pot and let sit.

      The sign of yeast starting to work is forming of bubbles on the
      surface of the wash.

      Keep covered at room temperature and mix the wash once daily until
      bubbling stops.

      After about 5~7 days when bubbles will no longer foam after stirring
      and there is no faint noise of dioxide bubbles surfacing the wash is
      ready.

      If the taste is dry and slightly bitter, all of sugar has been
      converted to alcohol and dioxide and you can distill this wash. If
      there is some sweet taste to the wash, then not all of sugar was
      converted. Add some water, stir the mix and wait a few more days
      hoping that some yeast is still alive. After all of sugar is
      converted, distill the wash. Distill first time without observing any
      rules. Distill second time to collect only middle 60% of the liquid
      volume. Dilute to 40% abv and serve chilled.
