Making toilet paper moonshine

46 955
**Major correction: I wrongly and repeatedly referred to T. Reesei as being a yeast, when it is actually another type of fungus. Yeast is also a type of fungus, so my comments about reaction conditions remain true, but it is incorrect to call T. Reesei a yeast. Or to say that the cellulase came from yeast.
**small correction: I also said that 20ml of 20% , when it was supposed to be 25ml.
For this video, I'm going to be doing exactly what the title says, and I'll be turning a roll of toilet paper into moonshine. This was something that I've been wanting to do for a while and I am really surprised how well it turned out!

Well, now in the perspective of 2020, reversing the process would be gold! Liquor stores are stocked well, but toilet paper is scarce.

Where is the charcoal filter (somewhat, very necessary/critical step) buddy? Regardless, awesome video (especially for the straightforwardness and level of practicality) attention despite me having no professional interest in chemistry/biochemistry. Love from Ventura, California! 'Merica

problem with this is that paper ,, especially toilet paper is made by bleaching wood pulp ,, bleach is actually chlorine ,,, so this is a really bad idea ,,, about on the same level as making wood alchohol which is lethal ,,,

There is a warning that distilling in your State may be illegal - but no precautions that drinking alcohol made from toilet paper could also be improper.
