Hi folks,

I don't have much interest from makes alcohol from sugar and other preprocessed stuff. I grew some jerusalem artichokes to try to make some alcohol and I have the book alcohol can be a gas but still have a hard time getting started on this project. Has anybody out done this on a small scale and was able to locate needed yeasts and other materials to make it from scratch on a small scale, like five or ten gallons? A nice step by step manual with materials and where to get them would be helpful. thanks for any assistance, jeff

Jeff Wesolowski : If you and I can make vodka from potatoes I see no reason you cant make a great wine or beer from jerusalem Artichokes !

Here are three sources of information !


1) You can Google (D.I.Y.) beer / wine making supplies and or supply shops and then just drop by. If the Shop is prosperous there will probably

be a bulletin board with group meetings and offers for equipment AND usually someone selling honey !

2) http://www.meetup.com/find/?allMeetups=false&keywords=Beer+making&radius=Infinity&userFreeform=Russell%2C+NY&mcId=c13684&mcName=Russell%2C+NY&sort=default

Meetup.com will probably produce several Beer / Wine Fans in your area!

3) http://www.popularmechanics.com/home/how-to-plans/how-to/g143/how-to-make-brew-beer/

Worth a look at for #6 and number #19 ( I guy who came up with cleanliness is next to godliness was probably an imbibing Monk !


I hope you fine this timely and useful, for the Good of ALL the Crafts ! Big AL

- One more link to what is possibly the Cheapest Column Still ever made ! I would probably only use the Ethyl Alcohol (it will also contain some methanol )

as fuel for stoves and as an additive to regular bass to cool the internal combustion engine ! Definitely not sipping Whisky ! Big AL
