Anyone know how to make this stuff? I know it has everclear in it but not sure what else or how to make it. If you're from NODAK you might know about this drink.

I've got a recipe from a guy in ND that has berries (any kind), sugar, and some other boozes in it and it all ferments for some time is that what you're looking for? There's no everclear in the recipe though.

Is this also known as Sugarbrine? (pernounced SOOgarbrine).

It's everclear and burnt sugar, purified water, 60-40 mix. My friends in Strasburg/Linton showed me how to make it years ago and I ALWAYS have a bottle of it in the freezer.

It's called wedding punch too.

Oh yes... Redeye. Commonly served at North Dakota wedding receptions. smile

Everclear, Sugar, Water, and I've always seen it with Cherry flavoring. No surprise that NDSU has the recipe on their HSOforum. grin

Hope everyone has a cab ride home! wink

My ND contacts are experts. They have been using the Root Beer and other flavored potions available for sno cones to adulterate theirs. The Root Beer gets my vote for 2nd place (over the non-flavored)...

Is this the same Redeye that the guy in the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail drinks religiously?

Do you just use the mix then; no extra sugar, etc?

    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem. 
    • I am from Richland Center.
      I have 2 2500 stradics in dis-repair.
      Both bales refuse to return to closed.
      Heard it may be simple as a spring.
      I am kinda cheap….if costs a lot to fix i will buy new reel. Anyone know somewhat local repair person that is reasonable?
    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.  
    • Another one thawing.  made this one for my nephew but will keep it for me. So will have another one in the brine in a couple days. 
    • It's a little early to be hitting the bottle don't you think?  Believe in Trump and you'll feel better.
    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
