How to Make Pure Alcohol

If you're looking for a cheap way to make 100% pure alcohol, to just get drunk or to use in some other project, you've come to the right page.

Before we begin, there are some simple ingredients you will need to collect. You will need a large balloon, water (pretty easy to obtain), 2 cups of white sugar, 1 can of apple juice, a clean plastic milk jug and a funnel.

I'd just like to add that if you drink this stuff in 100% concentrate, it will taste TERRIBLE. The point of this recipe is to have the alcohol to add to other beverages in small enough traces to give you a buzz and add a distinct flavor to your drink.

Now, let's begin!

Step 1

How to Make Pure Alcohol

Get your milk jug, yeast, sugar and apple juice ready. Grab the funnel and CAREFULLY pour the ingredients into the milk jug. When you're pouring in your yeast, it's easy to make a huge mess so really be careful. Now, screw the cap onto your jug and shake it up for a good sixty seconds. Really make sure everything blends together well.

Now, unscrew the lid again and fill the remainder of the jug all the way to the top with water. Tighten the lid back on and hold it in place with your hand while you slosh the brew around for another full sixty seconds. You want to make sure there are no chunks or floaters by the time you are done. It's got to be one solid mixture. If after sixty seconds, it still isn't the right texture, keep going until it is.

Good, now get your balloon out. Take off the cap and stretch the balloon over the top of the milk jug. Locate a cool area to store this concoction over the next few days. If you did everything right, you should see the balloon begin to inflate with gas over the course of time from the gasses as alcohol forms.

You'll know your beverage is ready when the balloon completely deflates itself. Be sure to keep it in the refrigerator for the best taste.

Good luck!


In my opinion, this stuff doesn't taste that great, but it WILL DEFINITELY GET YOU DRUNK! Then again, I am not much of a beer drinker. Anyways, enjoy!
