I fancy making some homemade alcohol. Is it as simple as water sugar and yeast and if so does anyone have a recipe? I understand champagne yeast is the best one for a stronger brew

Thanks for your answers but I don’t want to make wine
I want an alcohol base to then flavour with different things

Lots of gin making kits on Amazon

Don't necessarily need a still. Can use a freezer. Watch out you don't go blind.

Don’t try freeze distillation. Hot (still) distillation can separate the toxins from the drinkable alcohol because it evaporates first (the heads) and can be discarded. When you freeze distill everything gets concentrated including the bit that gives you the bad hangovers and can make you blind or even kill you
Vodka is made from potatoes or grain
