Corn!!!!!!!!!! America loves corn.  I went to a corn establishment to say the least near the Michigan Ohio Border and Checked Outed their facilities....MOONSHINE AND ALL!  Too bad for them, and for us, they have to denature the moonshine because the Alcohol officials would be on their ass otherwise.  More to come. This dude here was pretty nice and he knew a lot about corn.  But I still think the whole production is WHACK.

So whether your into enthanol, beer, or liquid CO2, the job of a FUNGUS------>(Yeast); is to take in the SUGAR (from the corn or the honey or the barley) as food, and they literally poop out the drunk-causing-feeling-compounds. So next time someone gives you SHIT for liking fungi, ask them; "Well, Do you like alcohol? Or the ethanol which gets mixed in your Gas tank? Or the bread your grandma bakes? BECAUSE IT ALL COMES FROM FUNGUS SHIT!"  Just sayin!

In case I confuse you, WIKI SAYS: "Alcoholic beverages are defined as beverages that contain ethanol (C2H5OH). This ethanol is almost always produced by fermentation – the metabolism of carbohydrates by certain species of yeast under anaerobic or low-oxygen conditions. Beverages such as mead, wine, beer, or distilled spirits all use yeast at some stage of their production."  

Thanks to my fungi class, I retreived this recipe:

D. Recipe for Prison Pruno (hooch) by Jarvis Masters
I hope you never have the opportunity to try to make this. I learned about this from someone who works at the L. A. County Jail (the world’s largest). Inmates have been sickened from botulism (a bacterium) and methanol in batches that are contaminated. The basic principle is to use yeast naturally occurring on fruits for fermentation. Jarvis Masters is currently on death row at San Quentin State Prison in California, where he has been since 1990. He claims his innocence and has written numerous articles and books about his story.

Take ten peeled oranges,

six teaspoons of ketchup,
You are remanded to the custody of the warden of San Quentin,

then stash the bag undisturbed again for 72 hours.
It is so ordered.
Reheat daily for 15 minutes.
In witness whereof,
After 72 hours,
I have hereon set my hand as Judge of this Superior Court,
with a spoon, skim off the mash,
and I have caused the seal of this Court to be affixed thereto.

May God have mercy on your soul.
