This microstill design and instruction was created to allow someone to make their own spirits. Not a bad tool to have around in an SHTF scenario. I am sure there will be serious addictions that will need to be fed as the stress compiles and resources diminish. You could find yourself with an incredible bartering tool if you are quick to jump on making spirits. Though spirits aren’t the only thing this macro still could produce for you.
When I first read the article or instructions I found that this would be a great option for distilling water. Clean water, depending on the type of disaster, could hold more weight than anything else. There are some basic electronics and things you will have to buy but once you put it together you will also know how to fix it or make more. You could just be the person who sells stills in the post-apocalyptic world!
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
