I think moonshine has the potential to be the strongest... might make you go blind, but it'll knock you out good and cold too

no, most moonshine is around 70-75% alcohol. Everclear is stronger and probably better for you. There is no way to have a 100% alcohol liquid, because it would evaporate

rye (a kind of kentucky/tennessee whiskey) is usually about 105. shots of 151 are a nice way to start a night. everclear is 190. moonshine is just homemade whiskey.

The Everclear I got in Colorado was 195 proof. I didn't drink any; I just spat it through a lighter and blew fireballs. That was fun.

Bacardi 151 is good.
Southern Comfort comes in 100 proof form.
There's a Yugoslavian drink called Looza which is probably < 100 proof but far, far more potent than most other things I've tried. 2 shots of that and ANYONE is done.

You sure that Everclear was 190 proof? Most people I know tend to not remember much after coming into contact with Everclear. BTW, where can I purchase this Looza stuff, and about as important, how much is it? It might make weekends cheaper, provided it lasts more than the two hours it takes the human liver to process two drinks.

Everclear is 190 proof. I have seen the bottle but not been stupid enough to drink from it.

During distillation, water is removed from the alcohol that was produced by the fermentation process to increase its potency. What started as a fermented liquid with an alcohol content of about 10% by volume becomes a "distilled spirit" with an alcohol content of 40% to 50% (80 proof to 100 proof) or more. In the United States, most distilled spirits have an alcohol content of 40% to 50%. Blood alcohol charts assume this potency when describing the number of drinks needed to reach a given BAC. However, some distilled spirits have more water removed and reach potencies of 60%, 75% or even 95%.

Neutral Grain Spirits or "Grain Alcohol"
If nearly all of the water is removed from the fermented liquid, all that is left is the alcohol. Due to alcohol's natural attraction to water, it is very difficult to get ALL of the water out (which creates "scientific alcohol"), but it is relatively easy to get the alcohol content to 190 or 195 proof (95% or 97.5% alcohol by volume). Neutral Grain Spirits are nearly pure alcohol. Originally used as an ingredient in other alcoholic beverages or medicine, neutral grain spirits are sold in some states (including Indiana), as a high potency beverage in its own right. It is odorless and tasteless, but extremely potent. Since taste is not an object, production costs are very low, and most of the beverage cost is tax.

Everclear is a popular brand of neutral grain spirits. In most states where it is sold, Everclear is sold at 190 proof. Some states require lower potency, such as 155 proof. Everclear is a popular ingredient in some high-potency drinks popular with college students as a means of rapidly increasing BAC. Everclear is an ingredient in such college-student favorites as "Jello Shots" and punches such as: Tyson Punch (Everclear, Mellow Yellow, Kool Aid, Orange Juice, Sprite), Purple Jesus (Everclear and purple Kool-Aid, Jungle Juice (Everclear and any Kool-Aid), Smurf Piss (Everclear, Blue Kool-Aid and Mountain Dew) and Romulan Ale (Everclear, Vodka, Blue Curacao, Orange Flower Water)

High Proof Liquors
This category includes distilled spirits products that are sold at more than 100 proof (50% alcohol by volume). Products such as Bacardi 151, a 151 proof rum, and whiskeys sold at 120 and 150 proof, are popular ingredients in college student recipes, such as "Hop, Skip and Go Naked," "Skylab Fallout," and the "Zombie." Since alcohol more than 100 proof will ignite and burn, these high proof liquors are used in many flaming drinks.

99.5%(199 proof) Ethanol Anhydrous, Reagent A.C.S. undenatured. Even though they aren't meant to be drunk, they're still being assesed a federal excise tax.

It is extremely difficult to get pure ethanol without denaturing it (adding chemicals). However, pure ethanol can exist and not evaporate. The boiling point is well above room temperature.

Getting much higher than 160 proof requires pressure swing distillation to break the azeotrope, or the addition of chemicals. These chemicals are usually toxic, so industrial grade ethanol is labeled denatured and is toxic to drink. This also adds the bonus of removing an excise tax on the alcohol.

What about Wray & Nephew's White Overproof Rum," I can't find the proof rating anywhere on the bottle, it was a gift :confused:

Smirnoff ice is good stuff a little sweet and expensive but good, don't worry if someone calls it a panzy drink. Smirnoff vodka isn't 100 proff but good and smooth, hairy navels(1/2 vodka 1/2 fuzzy navel) are pretty good with smirnoff.

According to people: The strongest that any alcohol beverage can be is 195% proof (or 97.5% alcohol). At higher proof, the beverage draws moisture from the air and self-dilutes.
The only alcohol that i heard of that is readily available that is 190 proof is neutral grain spirits.
And moonshine ranges from just over 100 proof to close to 195 proof, you can tell by how the bubbles pop at the top, if they pop to quick then its weak(thats what i heard).

As opposed to drinking alcohol, which is nontoxic, right? i/expressions/rolleye.gif

Oh, man...everclear. No one here has drunk that stuff? Comeon! I get all psyched to drink this stuff, thought I would colapse gripping my chest.

I drink it, and think "Damn...that stuff tastes like sugar water!!!" It had a little kick to it, I don't even think as much as most hard liquers. Goes down nice and smooth...

Once you cut it into a little coolaid, man, that is some funky punch. That and beer are fav's at my colleges. Here's a hint: If you can taste alchohol in the punch, it is DAMN strong.

But I am dry this semster, I promised myself that.

I'm talking about relative toxicity here. If you don't drink, fine, but don't try to make a point by making someone else look bad.

Smirnoff 100 is a proof vodka that's decent i guess....

As others have said, this isn't true.. lol.. Yeah.. it's hard to get anhydrous alcohol, but it's certainly not impossible.. and it can only draw moisture from the air if it's container isn't air tight.. heh..

Bah.. who cares if making your own alcohol is illegal? It's not like you're going to get caught, unless you're building some monster still in you're back yard. You don't have anything to worry about if you're not going to sell it, anyway.

Be careful though. You should know what you're doing before you whip some up and drink it.. lol.. Unless you want to become blind and retarded.. :D Methanol is nasty stuff..

Fortunately, it has a lower boiling point than ethanol....

Eli
03-04-2002, 03:45 AM
lol.. Basically, Proof is twice the percentage by volume.. I don't know the story behind it though.. lol

200 proof = 100%
80 proof = 40%

etc.. lol

Edit: Here's what this site says..

<< Story goes that in the very old days, whiskey was "proved" to be good whiskey (that is it had enough alcohol in it, and had not been watered down), by pouring some whiskey on some gunpowder. Touch a match to the powder, and if it ignited it was "proof" that it was good whiskey. However, if there was too much water in the whiskey, the powder would be too wet to ignite. Then you have proof that its not good whiskey.

About 50% alcohol-water mixtures will allow gunpowder to catch on fire. Thus the 50% alcohol became 100% proof that it was good whiskey, which is why today it is called 100 proof whiskey >>



lol...

Thanks eli...I knew what proof was sorta but never knew why the hell you used proof numbers to measure the strength of alcohol. Instead of saying something is 150 proof, why not just say its 75% alcohol


oh well....drink up:D

I don't really drink, lol.. I just know a bit about making alcohol because I've looked into it for fuel purposes many times..

Engines aren't nearly as picky as people about the booze they drink. ;)
