VALPARAISO — By most accounts, it’s disgusting — a mixture of decaying fruit, sugar and bread that Porter County Sheriff David Lain said “literally smelled like a garbage disposal.”
However, guards doing a kitchen sweep recently at Porter County Jail found a batch.
Inmates call it prison hooch, and it’s an attempt at making alcohol using whatever items a prisoner can get. And it’ll make you sick before you get a buzz off it, Lain said.
“Basically, it’s rotting fruit,” he said. Instant drink mix can be used for the sugar, and bread is an attempt at providing yeast.
They’re learning a trade, OK?
