    You use the potato peel to make poteen. You purify the alcohol by distillation. Most cars will need modifying to be able to run on alcohol.

    Boil Potatoes for 20 minutes in water, 7 gallons for 25 lb of pototo peels.

    Mash potatoes by hand or by using an immersion blender.

    Transfer the mash to your mash pot and add the same amount of water.

    Heat to 140 F. Hold for 1hr. Stir frequently. Let it cool overnight.

    Make the yeast starter, yeast and sugar with warm water in a cup. When bubbled add to mash. Leave 2 weeks to brew.
