Don't forget the farmers, they get their cut for growing the corn for the ethanol.

Same thing is happening in the US. The Federal government has loosened the rules for producing alcohol and some distilleries are now producing hand sanitizer. There are some small distilleries in my area that are producing hand sanitizer.

I saw a report that Irish distilleries are doing the same.

Glad we have a few bottles of single malt in store.

Later,
Dan

Sounds like a perfect solution, put it into hand sanitiser instead, farmers are happy, oil companies are happy, consumers are happy, greenies are unhappy.

Can I make hand sanitiser by mixing a slug of the cheap bootleg rum I usually feed to guests into moisturiser?

Can you pour it over your hands and then drink it?

But only if its 120 proof or higher. Anything less than 60% ABV is apparently ineffective as a sanitizer. (or 70% for isopropanol aka rubbing alcohol)


That's according to CDC.

That's according to CDC.
And then there is dilution from the moisturizer that you add -- it's supposed to end up >60% (or by some sources, >70%) when used.

Many places that sell rotgut rum also sell straight grain alcohol as well, stuff like Everclear, and that is usually ~90% or better ETOH.

Re: The Great Toilet Paper Crisis of 2020 or Poo problems Downunder

Thanks gentlemen, my problem now is that I don't know what the proof is but would guess from the effect on my rum drinking visitors that it's either fairly high or my bootlegger leaves a fair bit of methyl alcohol in it.

If the concentration is done a little, boost it with metho which should be above 90% ABV ex the container.

It i strangely reassuring to learn my fellow Americans are not the only idiots in the world.

Don't worry, the only guarantee in life is that there are waay too many idiots, all promising the moon, and the sad thing is that some really believe what comes out of their mouths, others just wish to sway the masses to their benefit, damn the rest.

Stay safe God bless

Re: The Great Toilet Paper Crisis of 2020 or Poo problems Downunder

Do they have "senior" hours in OZ? Some of our stores will open an hour early for seniors.

I actually went to my local store at 6am today. Hit the lottery man! Bog paper AND paper towels. Even a small bottle of hand sanitizer and some disinfectant wipes.

All the stuff was gone in about 10 minutes.

Now I can delay the purchase of an ass gun for about 3 weeks! woo hoo
