What is the idea? A list of the first 100 things to let go of? Those would be some long posts.

Ah, excellent. So these are some things it may not be a bad idea to get ahold of right? Barter, and practical value.

Dude. You brew your own beer. What you need are hops, barley, water, and the various pots, chiller, carboys, etc. to do it. Same with wine. And if you can make wine, you can distill brandy. Get into that now so you're not screwed later. (Everything 'cept the distilling part, since that's a federal no-no!)

Just go ahead and fire up the still anyway.

Consider your wrist slapped. We don't advocate illegal activities here on the forum for obvious reasons. :)

If everything goes completely to hell sometime in the future, then...do what you must.

You can apply and without cost (or very minimal like $25) obtain a federal license to distill ethanol for fuel. The big catch is that you need a building to house your distillation operation that is not connected to and does not have people living in it. Also you MUST denature your ethanol so that is not consumable else you are violating laws and are subject to some serious fines. I'm not suggesting or encouraging illegal behavior but just clarifying that if your purpose is fuel which in a SHTF situation would be an incredibly valuable commidity, it's actually possible to do legally. May as well start the paperwork now so that you don't have to try and get equipment after it's really difficult.

/I'm no lawyer, do your own legal legwork and check local/state laws in addition to federal laws to make sure anything you attempt is on the up and up.
