Would be much better to use wine/beer/spirit yeast though is quite possible with wild yeast- the problem is that they will not produce high quantities of alcohol!. The yeast will also not be too healthy without some yeast nutrients- they will produce lots of off flavour ethers!.

Moonshine typically refers to the distilled end product!. The perfect mixture would be of sugar, water, yeast nutrients and a special distillers yeast that ferments to high alcohol levels!.

You cant make a brew in under 4 days!.

The entire fermentation will take 2 weeks or so and then you will have to distill it- requiring special eqipment (a still), to produce a high alcohol >17% drink!.

If you are just after making some quick and cheap booze, without distilling- go to the store and get some yeast (preferably brewers, but in a pinch baking yeast will do) and a big bottle of apple juice!.

Drink a cup of the apple juice, add 1 desertspoon of the yeast and cover with clingfilm (dont put the cap back on)!.

Hope this helps!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Nobody I know is hard up enough to drink the results of what you propose!. Wait a decade until you are old enough to buy liquor legally!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
