    I bet you bought that off a guy who plays a wood flute and wears sandles 24/7 and made it out of his parents basement.

    It probably isn't nearly as girly to drink Zima out of a mason jar. :D

    Step one: Make moonshine
    Step two: Add slice of peach'


    Done and done.

    Scott Aka Hoyt Hunter is a big Zima fan from what his brother tells me....

    But, he's from up North, and I hear those guys will drink anything if they think there is alcohol in it.:rolleyes:

    I've had a few nights in my life, where if I donated a urine sample the next morning, you probably couldn't tell the difference.:wave:

    That explains the Corona at the cabin. Minnewegains are an odd lot.

    Well, if you are making moonshine and it is 2.3% alcohol, you are not doing it right.

    You would think, most moonshine drinkers are looking for more kick.

    But, you would also think most moonshine drinkers aren't really interested in a peachy aftertaste either..... :shrug:

    If it's only 2.3%, then I am over estimating my alcohol tolerance. :wave:

    Do you know a lot of moonshine drinkers?

    The picture I posted may or may not be about 55% by volume... I may or may not have proofed it personally Saturday at about 110.

    The stuff Todd left at the Cabin last year was pretty potent.

    It ended up getting consumed at the Ole Miss -vs- Mizzou game down in the Grove. Let's just say it warmed things up a bit. My bottle of Makers only lasted about 15 minutes. :mad:

    Prove it. I want to see you drink some and light it on fire. Post a video. :wave:

    Are you saying that the guy making the shine you are talking about isn't yielding over 100proof?

    There is nothing to prove, it is what it is. And 110 isn't all that high, it was towards the heel of the batch.

    I'd be very disappointed with 5 proof after going through all the trouble, hypothetically of course.

    Did you cut it?

    In all seriousness most old timers I knew down south of Des Arc would cut it with sun tea. I've done that with sweet tea and it's pretty dangerous drink combo. I don't know anybody who actually enjoys drinking straight moonshine. I can handle a swig here and there but not drinking straight out of the jar.

    Kind of like my Dad's cough medicine. I could handle a swig of this stuff but you can't sit there and sip it.

    If you thought I was serious, well, I expected more out of you. :wave:

    The "Moonshine Challenge"!

    Maybe we can get this one to take off on MWT since people are dodging the ice bucket challenge.

    No because what he is proposing is a ridiculous waste of a lot of hard work.

    Nope, as people walked into our little setup in the Grove, they were greeted with the open jar, and told to take a hit.:D
