https://homebrewadvice.com › how-to-make-moonshineIn general, you can expect it to take between 1-3 weeks to make moonshine, as the mash must ferment and the distillation process must be continued until the final shine is safe for consumption.
Maybe. First of all, let's look at what the hobby distiller said (bold by me):He succinctly wrote: "Gloves, goggles, burns, smell of sulfur – knocked off his feet by copper still."
While he does say "distinct" he also says it overlays the malt aroma. To clarify, I'm someone that never misses a distillery tour anywhere I visit, though I can neither confirm nor deny that I may occasionally dabble in some home alchemy with a still. So, the smell of sulfur may not be an overpowering note that can coat Michalak's clothes and make him smell bad.A distinct smell of sulfur/sulfide and vulcanized rubber overlays the fine malt aroma.

During fermentation, so-called thioalcohols can be formed, in which an oxygen atom is replaced by a sulfur atom (or so).
Key points: A distillery still has perforated plates. And the pattern on Michalak's torso was the only real mystery to me.

A turbo yeast is nothing like an ordinary pack of wine or beer yeast. In fact, it is not very good at fermenting beer or wine, it is usually far to fast and brutal for this, leaving nothing of the desired flavours and bouques in your brew if you try. Instead the turbo yeast is designed for the fastest and most reliable fermentation of a pure sugar/water mix, into pure alcohol.
Turbo yeast come in many flavours today. The typical groups are
Moderate alcohol turbo yeast - fast
Turbo's in this group are Alcotec 6 (3 day fermentation), Alcotec 48 (which does it in 48 hours, hence the name). The alcohol level is usually around 14% by volume. This is the result of full fermentation of 6 kgs of sugar in 25 litres final volume (the rest being water).High alcohol turbo yeast - slower
Speciality turbo yeast - hyper fast, hyper clean
We have the Alcotec 24 - makes moderate alcohol in only 24 hours, it is the most extreme fermentation you have ever seen. There are also a few "super clean" fermenting yeasts such as the Alcotec VodkaStar and the Alcotec Triple Still.
But is it universally used? Or do some traditionalists prefer doing it the old fashioned way like daddy taught 'em? If nothing else, it would seem to deprive one of the peaceful weeks of vacation out in the woods, away from trouble and strife. (Of course one COULD stay out for weeks and use your newfangled yeast to make multiple batches, maybe...)Nah, we've had Turboyeast for decades
Old thread but I wanted to add this:
I'll add more, like a plug for your website.
ouch. the hospital shaved him all around and Over his burns?His original burns are the blotchy ones on his chest and upper abdomen - that photo was taken 2 or 3 days after the incident probably by the UFO researcher who visited him at home.
the doctor said the holes in his undershirt matched the burned areas on his chest. so the whole shirt didnt catch.
and he said he had a proper shirt over his tshirt. weirdness.
yup.Note the grid pattern on the undershirt is not holes with blackened edges - merely surface marks. So what the doctor is referring to here must be the other burns on the shirt - the huge holes on the chest (in the photo the shirt has been cut open so you need to imagine it back in one piece) which do indeed match Michalak's burned chest.
still doesnt explain where all his chest hair went. why would the hospital shave between his pecks for example, there is no burn there and shaving a burn would hurt.
and the ufo grid i dont think, can flash singe hair off your body if it is under two shirts.
i think he made up the grid pattern burns because he didnt have any evidence of a grid causing the initial burn.
I think it's likely he rubbed hot ash on his chest, since that's what the highway officer thinks he saw. He refused to show the officer his undershirt, so I also think it's likely all the damage on the undershirt was created when he got back to the hotel, or back home
the story was always a grid on the ufo burned him. all sorts of things could have burned him, so the only way to give his story oomph was to produce a grid. (vs everyone just dismissing him saying "yea you were drunk and passed out on the fire" etc.) I think that is the only reason he faked the grid burns later on.So even the idea of producing evidence of burns matching the dots on the shirt didn't exist until 1968.

someone would have to be closely paying attention to our conversation. first its called a book , then you answer my question. and then post something else then post a link to a booklet.The context of the booklet is abundantly clear.
But this booklet does not show the colour photo as you are stating here (#47):
His original burns are the blotchy ones on his chest and upper abdomen - that photo was taken 2 or 3 days after the incident probably by the UFO researcher who visited him at home. It appears in Michalak's self-published book (late 1967), in which there is no mention of him suffering a grid of dot pattern of burns and no photo of it.
i saw it. page 21But this booklet does not show the colour photo as you are stating here (#47):
i think she is talking about the photo with the grid pattern on his stomach.and the Michalak booklet does show a photo of the shirt with the grid pattern on the cover, doesn't it?
Okay, thank you! I did not recognize it from the preview pictures.i saw it. page 21
i think she is talking about the photo with the grid pattern on his stomach.
I'm a little confused now. I understood that in this version the grid pattern was introduced afterwards - not only as an injury, but also on the undershirt.i think she is talking about the photo with the grid pattern on his stomach.
