Question: How does one make alcohol while living in the wild!?
How do you ferment barely or fruits to make alcohol when living in the wild!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Take your wild fruit once it is very ripe (high sugar content), preferably grapes and pick and crush (mash and squeeze) them into some sort of a bucket like container!.

There are natural yeasts on most wild fruit that should start to convert the sugar to alcohol!. Cover with something to keep the bugs out and stir it a couple of times every day for about a week or two as the yeast cells need oxygen to live, multiply and do their work!.

When it quits bubbling and looks very still, try to press the wine off of the fruit with a piece of porous cloth like a t-shirt!. Just pour the concoction into a large piece of cloth over another container and separate the juice/wine from the fruit!. Then, drink up!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Mash the fruit and let it sit in a container with a fine mesh cover (to keep dirt and insects out)!. It'll ferment!. (There are all kinds of yeasts in the air!.)

For barley you really should let it grow first (most kernels - they'll grwo an 'awn' or beard)!. Then you roast it, a little or a lot, depending on how dark you want the beer to be!. Standard beer-making technique!. Or you can do what our ancestors about 7 or 8,000 years ago probably did - just soak barley in a little water, covered, and let it ferment!. (Elephants love "grass beer" - fermented grass seed!. It happens naturally!.)Www@FoodAQ@Com

You need yeast to turn sugar into alchohol--I'm not sure what other organisms would work instead, or how you would find yeast in the wild!. So bring it with you if you are planning to be away from stores for a while!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
