    it has something to do with proving its good booze by seeing how well it takes to a flame back in the old days of moonshine in the US i believe. Not sure how they came up with the doubling of the % scale, but that's where the term "proof" comes from

    Holy freaking necro bump!

    I had to quit 151 for tequila.

    If you find yourself at the bar next to a jerk, though, nothing says "Get away from me" better than an "accidentally" spilled shot of 151 while lighting a cigarette.

    Yeah, I had to quit tequila for gin...

    I drink any type of liquor, but that 151 tastes fucking terrible. It has no flavor and just a crap load of burn. I am talking from a drinking it straight point of view.

    Even moonshine has flavor to it, and can go down smooth, (especially the "brandy" moonshine made from fruit) despite the fact that it has an even higher alcohol content.

    Oh god this thread again... :lol:

    I got my hands on some 85% pure alcohol once (I got connections to some distillers), and decided to blow the cap an evening with some friends...
    I woke up in the morning with the entire right arm down the toilet and with a taste of apples and salt.

    I have to say no to alcohol that strong now. I'll stick with jäger. :ugh:

    Also, why drink 151 neat?

    I've actually never minded 151 straight. Compared to anything else in that range, it's definitely got taste, at least to me.

    This also coming from someone who used to drink Everclear straight with his friends. YMMV :lol:

    This thread is small-time. Make way for science.

    :scratch:
    You can't get 200 proof (100%) alcohol. It's physically impossible. Even with hydrolysis, you'd only get somewhere around 196 proof.
    Plus, you'd have to thin it out really well with some mixers to avoid getting really really sick. Even a 1:2 mix with juice could be a really potent shot.

    I figured I'd be coming into this thread to chew someone out for necrobumping. Low and behold, it's the OP! :lol:

    I just can't do really hard liquor, although it's more because I often detest the taste than anything.

    You can get higher than the ~96% that results from distillation from a few different methods. I know a lot of companies use drying agents to achieve this, but I don't know about this specific company.
    Plus I was just posting it for laughs, I'm not crazy enough to try drinking the stuff :lol:

    You can get 200 proof (99,5% ethanol) or even 100% by simply adding a dissecant to the "mixture". I think you can only get around 95% using simple destillation. And I also think ethylene glycol is an excellent dissecant for this procedure hahaha.

    But... I could also be wrong! I shouldn't though, or else I should be re-considering my chemical engineering major ahhahahahah

    You just wouldn't want to use ethylene glycol in a product you plan on drinking... :lol:
    And the 96% is from fractional, simple distillation will only get you so far.
