Q ) WHAT IS FEEDSTOCK ?
A ) By feedstock, I mean a
good source of sugar or starch (carbohydrates) which can be fermented in the same process as which you make beer or wine.
- You aren't going to drink it, so it can be somewhat contaminated:
- For example, we once made a batch from a weeks' garbage from a low-security prison
(one of our CAPFA founders worked there), so he separated it out for us.
- It was mostly lumpy mashed potatoes and stale bread, and we had to fight off the flies
while we ran mixed it with water and dumped it into a larger fermentation tank.
- Then we covered it with window screen to keep the flies away.
