I don't really drink at all, yet I keep vodka in my pantry for so many reasons. No rubbing alcohol for me - vodka will work as well and is not a poison to me. I can pour a tablespoon into old food to keep it safe, I can rub it on bug bites, I just found out I can add a drop of mint and that fights cold sores better than drug store remedies. What can you do with vodka rather than drink it.

I knew it had other uses but never keep it in my home.

Great tips on its uses though. A couple I didn't know

Yeow dumping it down your throat might make you forget a toothache , I think leaving it in your mouth for a long time might really help to disinfect a bad tooth.

Vodka is really cheap to make, that's probably it's single greatest quality. Not too many people grow their own grain, but it's easy to grow a substantial amount of potatoes in your backyard garden. Thus, your expenses to make a fairly large quantity of vodka are basically a bag of seed potatoes and some brewing supplies.

Basically the strategy is to boil the crap out of a bunch of potatoes and then mash them up to make kind of a thick soup. Once it cools to the right temperature, you add an enzyme that makes the thick starchy soup into a thin sugary liquid, to which you add yeast and then let it ferment. If you do it right, you end up with a clear wine that is then siphoned off and distilled.

I've never made vodka, and I'm not much of a drinker, but if I was, the economics of making vodka at home are kind of amazing.

I am a cheap person will do anything to save money, but I wouldn't take time to make vodka, easy enough to buy as much as I need, which is not much at all.

I don't think you're allowed to distill at home anyway.

I lived with a guy who made his own beer and mead, wonder if that is different? He would make apple cider too and freeze it so the really high alcohol stuff was separated and available in the center, I don;t drink beer at all the mead was good as was the cider sometimes.

It's legal to make wine and beer, you're just not allowed to distill it. I've heard of freezing wine to get the water out of it but I've never tried doing it.

haven't heard of that drink in a long time. I remember getting one out for the first time, I hated it put in sugar and lots of things to make it better.

It loves me back. I'm merely taking a pause from my drinking, might as well carry on in a decade or so.
