Prisoners Charged With Making Wine in Jail
Wine is often found in cells, but how? A report this morning reveals all.
Last month, nine prisoners were discovered making wine in the Robeson County Jail. Seemed like these North Carolina prisoners were trying to make the best out of life behind bars. Orange juice is found to be a key ingredient in making it. Officials are considering whether to eliminate it from the menu completely.
The inmates were discovered making wine last month in the Robeson County Jail, The Fayetteville Observer reported Wednesday.
The inmates used food from their meal trays, especially sweet items, to make the wine in a plastic bag, according to Assistant jailer Capt. Jeffrey Martin.

Prison wine…or prison hooch is made all the time by those that really want a taste of grandpa's old' cough medicine. It is commonly made in the cell toilet. The better choice, however, is to brew it in a trash bag.
Step #1: Make a strong bag by double or triple-bagging plastic trash bags.
Step #2: Pour warm water, your choice of fruit or fruit juice, raisons, tomatoes, yeast, and as much sugar as you can get. If sugar is not on hand, powdered drink mix will work also (kool-aid).
Note: (Many prisons make yeast illegal on the premises. In this case moldy bread does just fine. Slices should be moist and can be put in a sock to strain any stray elements.)
Step #3: Tie off the bag with a knot. Penetrate the bag with a straw, or some other type of tube to allow carbon dioxide to release.
Step #4: Hide the bag where your prison guard can't see it. Three days is enough, if you really can't wait. A week is a more reasonable time. Normal wine takes around a month to brew.
It is crucial that you hide the smell. Burning incense or spraying deodorant can help.
A blogger gives us their opinion on this topic.
What genius these men must possess. To be able to think that much outside the box and make their own wine from inside a jail cell and instead of having successful lives somewhere they are rotting behind bars. Talk about taking the wrong path in life. Tragic.
