Re: Fermenting without yeast

Moonshiners show strikes again. Or was it YouTube. Sory but you can not ferment alcohol without yeast. I don't care what you have seen elsewhere. You can not ferment without yeast.

Re: Back to check on all you pot stillers

Dunder is his name. :) My old dawg Blanik died last June. He was fourteen. I lasted about a month without one following me around and I finally broke and got an abandoned American Labrador from the RSPCA. She's a hunter and often brings a dead rabbit in to share.
