    Quote: "If you have limited funds and want some strong alcohol, the following recipe allows you to make 4 litres of alcopop using stuff available from the supermarket and is very cheap, it is also very strong.


    Student Brew (Extra strength AlcoPop 3 for over 4 Litres ready in 1 week)
    This has been designed to take into account the students lot. No he/she does not want a tone of brewing equipment but sure a limitless supply high power AlcoPop / CockTail for parties is a must. All ingredients easily available from Supermarkets.

    Required for this brew

    5 Litre still mineral water
    1 Sachet containing wine yeast + yeast nutrients to make 4.5 Litres
    (Most big supermarkets will have this, or try your local homebrew shop if not)
    1 KG white sugar (You will only need 1/2 of the bag unless you go on to animal strength AlcoPop)
    3 Lemmons
    Orange or similar concentrate to make up to 4.5 Litres

    That's it no other equipment required!
    Instructions

    Remove about 1/2 a litre of water from the mineral water container leaving 4.5 litres in the container. (This leaves enough space for the fermentation to take place)
    Squeeze the oranges into a clean glass. You need to remove any pips or bits of skin.
    Pour the juice into the mineral water container.
    Add the yeast to the surface of the liquid in the container. (You do not need to stir the yeast in just leave it to float on the surface. It will mix in its own time.)
    Leave for a few minutes for the yeast to hydrate
    Add 1/2 a bag of sugar (1/2 KG). A bit extra won't hurt it will take a bit longer to brew.
    Screw the cap on and agitate to get the sugar to dissolve. (Don't leave the cap on too long as the yeast is working and producing CO2 gas and you do not want the container to pop)

    Lightly put the cap on but NOT air tight. Squeeze test the container to make sure it is not air tight.
    (If it is air tight it will blow up due to the gas produced by the yeast. You will have 4.5 Litres of sticky mess) In an ideal world you would have a fermentation lock to ensure that the fermentation is done with the air excluded but this is a no equipment brew)
    Leave for 7 days to ferment & settle.

    Optional step for Animal strength AlcoPop (Add the rest of your Sugar, agitate to dissolve, and leave for at least another 7 days)
    When your brew has fully fermented and settled then gently pour the liquid into another vessel or vessels (Glasses, cups...).(Avoid pouring the sediment)
    Add your concentrate to the clear liquid in the vessel(s) and drink.
    My Animal strength AlcoPop has completed and I sampled it. The brew did take longer than I thought but that because it is over 15% Alcohol and its a bit cooler so the yeast worked a bit slower than usual. I have also just tried the less powerful version "Extra strength AlcoPop" at 7% Alcohol and this was ready within 7 days. The end result from using natural lemons is a cloudy drink. Natural lemonade is also cloudy. I am going to try the above but substituting the lemmons for concentrated lemon juice. This should end up with a clearer end product.

    If you want your AlcoPop sparkling then you proceed as per "Extra strength AlcoPop" at 7% Alcohol and transfer the brew after day 7 into 2 litre plastic lemonade / cola containers. These are made of a plastic called PET, which holds pressure very well. Do not fill the PET bottle completely leave about 1.5 inch head room. Add 1 level table spoon (15 ml) sugar to each 2 Litre PET bottle. Screw the cap on and leave at room temperature (16C - 23C). Leave for another 7 days and the brew should be sparkling and should have settled with a small sediment of yeast on the bottom. Transfer your PET bottle to the fridge and cool before you serve. To serve pour or siphon off the brew leaving the sediment behind and then add the concentrate to your brew."

    Gonna try this soon
