From a prepper's perspective, come a time where alcoholic beverages might become unavailable; which alternative would you pursue, or are you pursuing? Or, would you just go without? Beer has a short shelf life, unless it is a high alcohol Stout. Some Wines will lay up nicely but they must be unfiltered wines, generally Super Tuscans, Cabernets, or Bordeaux. Whites generally do not store well over long intervals and even the reds have issues when laid up over time. Distilled alcohol seems to hold up forever, like Scotches, Whiskeys, Gin, Vodka, Tequila, and Rum. All three of the above involve equipment, raw materials and the knowledge need for production. I have the equipment and knowledge to brew beer, but it requires that I have the ingredients, electrical power and propane to do so. Specifically, suitable malted grains, hops, and yeast. The process also requires a temperature controlled fermentation for both ales and lagers to create a drinkable beverage. That means I would have to source and rely upon the availability of the raw materials to produce said beverage, or grow my own barley or wheat as well as hops and have a sustainable yeast bank. I could brew over a wood fire to heat water for the mash, the boil the wort. I would need a cold water source and electricity to operate a pump to chill the wort to fermentation temperature, then maintain an optimum fermentation temperature for eight to fourteen days. A long time to run a generator and a lot of expense in solar to run temperature control equipment. Any plans?
