Historically, ethanol alcohol was the first synthesized product ever to be created by humans. Both the production and usage of alcohol were documented as far back as 10,000 B.C. This product which was originally made from grains, berries, fruits, honey and other plants was left to ferment in the sun.
Even in times past, fermented beverages have been used for medicinal purposes
Anything above 60% can be used as surgical alcohol.
Anything above 40% can be used to disinfect wounds for first aid purposes.
Alcohol is a commodity that everyone understands the value of.
There are always two different numbers on the bottle of an alcohol – while one is the proof the other is the percentage. The proof represents the amount of alcohol content in the beverage; it is the official government designation while the percentage is the amount of true ethanol alcohol content. To get the actual percentage of alcohol, all you need do is to divide the proof in half.
Even if you are a teetotaler, it is important to understand the place of liquor in a post-apocalyptic world. You can add cheap, high-alcohol content liquors by stocking them up. Everclear is the best liquor for this purpose.
Due to its many different purposes, this pure grain alcohol produced by Luxco should be purchased in 75.5 percent or 95 percent alcohol.
High-proof vodka would make a better substitute especially if you live in a state that restricts the sale of Everclear such as Chicago, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Maine, Iowa, Hawaii, and Florida.
