I would love to make an amylase schnapps session. That means, we attempt to produce alcohol with the minimum requirements and what’s at hand: our bodies and some carbohydrates. A few folks around the earth figured out that the amylase in our saliva breaks down carbohydrates into sugars, which then again are fermented into alcohol through wild yeast.

- carbohydrates (potatoes, rice, bread)
- seal-able containers to hold our raw material
- your mouth for chewing and story telling
I’d take the containers home, where I’d add some water and let them ferment in a happy environment. After a few weeks I filter (and pasteurize on request) the ferments and send them to wherever you are.
I have successfully made myself drunk upon my own amylase schnapps. In the picture you see some unfiltered rice-wine.
