    Depending on the yeast used and the sugar content of the mix, the natural fermentation process limits the alcohol content to about 10-12%. Smart cooks will distill the hooch to make concentrated liquor; it's more potent, easier to conceal, and will have little or no odor.

    Fortunately for us, not many hooch cooks are smart enough (or patient enough) to bother.

    Some very good quality vodkas are made from potatoes... so I have no doubt that some hooch makers could make some good stuff out of it!

    Actually, all good quality vodkas are made from potatoes.

    Soda's are the main source of sugar that is being used now in my joint.

    Most of the Prison fights are alcohol related. If it wasn't for that crap inmates usually wouldn't be brave enough to do the stabbings that they do. It gives them courage.

    Ahh...liquid courage. I couldn't even imagine getting within 100 ft of drinking something like they make.

    Some of our inmates got a hold of an officers hand dispenser of alcohol based hand sanitizer and used it to make brew. They also have a talent to remove the heating elements from the kettle wire attached and all and submerge it in the brew bag to make it ferment faster.

    Four or five years ago the thugs were making vodka out of french fries that they stole or were allowed to take from food service.
    "Give me six lines written by the most honorable of men, and I will find an excuse in them to hang him."

    "A fish rots from the head down."

    Some forgotten state prison administrator in reference to poorly led prison agencies.

    The Bald Man and the Fly


    There was once a Bald Man who sat down after work on a hot
    summer's day. A Fly came up and kept buzzing about his bald pate,
    and stinging him from time to time. The Man aimed a blow at his
    little enemy, but his palm came on his head instead;
    again the Fly tormented him, but this time the Man was wiser and
    said:


    "You will only injure yourself if you
    take notice of despicable enemies."

    White lightning, the kind that looks just like bottled water, you actually have to crack open their bottled water and smell it to make sure.....that's the good potent stuff....the best hooch is the stuff that they throw up and when the stench hits you, you projectile vomit on them.....yeah, I did it....it smelled that bad, smelled like death times two....bad!

    In Alaska it's called pruno and it's usually made from fruit. But since we are a potato growing state and our prison farm grows a lot of them, I'll have to investigate vodka distillation and see if anyone is making any.
