With a bit of patience, some water and sugar we can make a foul-tasting but strong booze. We could then barter it for things we need. Just don't expect too much.

It can be used to create moonshine at the cost of Sugar, Clean Water, and Fuel. It can also be used to make Fuel on the spot. It costs 3 sugar and 3 clean water with Bruno, and 4 of each with everyone else. It takes 0.5 hours to set up the crafting and 4 hours for the Moonshine to distill. The time needed to craft is not affected by how many you craft at a time. Only 5 moonshine can be crafted at once per moonshine still.
