I've been making home hooch for about a year now. I put lots of sugar, let it get almost hot, add a good amount of yeast and wait. I put it in 5 liter plastic jugs with the cover not screwed on.
Sometimes I put fresh mint in there or fresh absinth. I think it's absinth. They call it Seeba here, in Morocco. After about 3 weeks it's clear, and I do nothing after that but drink it. It's strong!
- 5L of water
- 4 cups of sugar
- bakers yeast (in 1/2 cup of warm water)
- fresh mint (or potatoes or absinth)
How can I improve on this simple recipe to make it stronger/better flavored? I don't want to distill it, because I'd probably kill myself with the results. Looking forward to your answers. Take care.
