Chemistry Class Corn whiskey

by John
(Port Arthur, Texas)

When I was in high school (many moons ago), my friend, who was also my lab partner and I, built a still out of laboratory equipment as a proof of concept of distillation.


I got a recipe from an old moonshiner I knew at a nursing home.

The still worked great!

Tasted like crap, but kicked like a Missouri mule.

Well, as things always work out, we got busted by the chemistry teacher. No real punishment though and got a good grade on the lab "project".

What we noticed was that none of the lab equipment we used EVER showed back up on the shelves, and the teacher was very happy for several weeks.

How good is that !!
