I’ve never had ketchup booze, but I’ve had some made out of oranges and jam packets and shit. Honestly? Not terrible. Taster like spicy orange juice

We used a whole bottle of ketchup in our last batch, along with hard candies from the nuns and soda for extra sugar.

So how does it taste? Ketchup, candy, and soda does not sound like a winning combination.

Its not very important how it tastes... But to be honest I'm not sure, I tried the pruno once and now I just help make it since other people don't understand the basic science of what's going on. I usually tell people to add soda after I pour them a cup if they have issues with the taste or strength.

I understand that if it is the only alcohol you can get that taste wouldn't matter. I was just curious.

Like spoiled wine? Or rotten fruit? Kinda like barf? Very acidic. Very bitter. The goal is to make all the sugar into alcohol so it usually isn't sweet unless you backsweeten it.

It's not even booze, you need a still to get to that purity. It's more like ketchup wine

I was booze to just mean anything with alcohol in it. I didn't mean hard liquor.
