5. Honey can be used to make hooch. This isn't rotgut, jailhouse pruno, or brown baby--this is classy stuff. For thousands of years, people have turned honey into alcoholic beverages. Mead is the most common form available today. It is similar to a white wine, but it tastes of honey rather than grape. To make mead, all you'll need is a gallon jug, two pounds of honey, three quarts of clean water, one pack of champagne yeast, a wine lock for the glass jug, and some food-safe disinfectant (vodka works well). Boil your honey and water for 15 minutes, then allow the mix to cool to room temperature. Add the champagne yeast (or white wine yeast) to the cool liquid. Pour the blend into the sanitized glass jug, and add the sanitized wine lock to the top. Allow it to bubble for six weeks in a dark, room-temperature environment. Pour the liquid off the sediment into a new clean jug, and cap it. Age the mead in a cool dark place for a few months and then enjoy this highly alcoholic ancestral nectar.
