How to make Alcohol at Home (Ethanol)


Note: For a sugar wash, you probably don’t need to sterilize anything. Just wash it with soap and water. The presence of other microbes can alter the taste if you plan to drink it.

This is a very basic way that you can make your own DRINKABLE ethanol at home. The main premise of this video is to show just how simple and easy it is to ferment your own alcohol. In a future video, I will try to dispel some myths regarding homebrewing, such as the exaggerated risk of methanol poisoning. I will also demonstrate how easy and safe it can be to distill your own ethanol from the wash that you produce.

In this video, I prepare a sugar wash (fermentation of sugar only). The process is similar to the preparation of wine or beer, but uses pure table sugar instead of a variety of different sugars, fruits or other additives. Also, more yeast is used in order to speed things up a little.

The final product should be ready in a week or two. If you want to drink it, you can. Just clear it first using a clearing solution and clean the taste up using activated carbon. It still won’t taste very good though.

NOTE: Be aware that there are some things that when added might be dangerous. So, please, if you decide to add something to the fermentation, please verify beforehand that it is safe.

Here are some calculators to calculate how much sugar you need to make a certain amount of alcohol.

    around 1:56 the lalvin stuff was on the screen and the misspelling onscreen was clear; it says K1-V1116 not K1V-1116. maybe it's not important, but I'm sure someone out there is looking for the latter…

    Use brown sugar and it will taste significantly better. I know it's due to the brown sugar containing large amounts of molasses, however I am not entirely sure why this simple addition causes such a drastic change in flavor.

    Can you actually drink ethanol? I thought it was used as a fuel. What is the difference between alcohol and ethanol?

    SMB is good for cleaning gear for wine making when the ph is low enough that you don't need it as clean but with something like this you would be much better sanitizing with a star san or iodophor. Also since that type of airlock can suck water in if the pressure goes negative, you should use cheap vodka or a ph sani like Star San. Also if you wanted to get a super high wash you could feed the sugar in stages and airate the wash with oxygen or and aquarium pump and a HEPA filter in stages.

    I inform you that I have found a mixture able to cancel the fact of alcohol on the state of a drinker. It is pure natural.

    I think this product will be in great demand on the market, because many drinkers seek to establish their normal states, after the passing of a threshold.

    How could this process be changed to maximise the amount of carbon dioxide gas production over a prolonged period of time? I am looking into doing this as a source of CO2 for my indoor garden.
