Austerity Pro Tip #2: Make your own booze

It is possible to ferment fruit juice in a jar in your closet. Leave the jar open for a few days, or dunk your feet in it to get the natural yeast working. Then let it sit for a couple of months.

The result will be a disgusting alcoholic sludge that will PROBABLY not kill you.

If it does kill you, I claim no responsibility.

However, you may wish to thank me when you discover that there is no 21% sales tax, no rent payment and no riot police in the afterlife.

Plus, it’ll be better than most Spanish beers.
