does anyone include a healthy stock of grampas medicine in their emergency reserves? I am curious if it would serve as a valuable trade good among other things. with hard stuff you could sanitize wounds, its flammable, drinkable, plus the last depression showed that booze is damn important to the populace. Im stocked already on whiskey, vodka, and a few bottles of wine but I definitely need more.

booze will be on par with diesel if shit gets nutty. Don't know how ruthless you are but getting douchebags lit up and taking their shit will be be a common theme early on. Excellent investment/tool (if you can keep out of it yourself).

Buying a distiller and learning how to use it might be really handy later on. You can use it before the SHTF. I know a guy who made some nice hard liquor out of berries he would collect on when he was on his ATV tours. You can make ethanol out of anything with sugar.

I think wood alcohol is the bad stuff. Make sure their are no branches when you distill. I would get a good book and follow the directions if I was going to distill. I believe it is illegal to distill any amount of alcohol, even for personal consumption, so keep it on the down low.

Beer and wine are legal but spirits require the tax man get his share.
