DIY Juice to Alcohol Hooch Kit

Can’t find use enough for your Giant Glass Beer Boot or Beer Holster? Then it’s time to get a-brewing with the DIY Hooch Kit. This kit lets you turn any bottle of fruit juice you may have sitting around your house into an alcoholic drink. All you need is the kit, the juice, 48 hours, and some patience.

It might sound like a joke, but it’s not. You really can turn any fruit juice into an alcoholic drink, provided it’s not artificially sweetened (So this means that sodas and other processed drinks are out.) This kit would be your perfect companion to take to trips where carrying booze (the obvious kind, you know, the one in the bottles) isn’t allowed.

  1. The Drinks-Lab Homebrew Kit

    You should also have a look at the Drinks-lab Homebrew Kit, the alcohol is produced within 24 hours instead of 48 hours and it’s cheaper

    The first product in our range – the Drinks-Lab Homebrew Kit, lets you to get your creative juices flowing by creating your own sparkling alcoholic drinks with your favourite fruit juices in three simple steps. The kit can turn up to 4 litres of juice into a refreshing, alcoholic beverage, with a volume of approx 4.5% in just 24 hours. Simply choose your juice, pour our special yeast blend into the bottle, seal the bottle with the supplied stopper and wait; our special yeast blend eats the sugar in the juice to produce alcohol and bubbles! The recommended home brew period time is 24 hours but the longer you leave the yeast to work, the more potent the drink will become, with a maximum alcohol content of approximately 14%.

    Cost: £10.00
