[Update: Powdered Alcohol is now legal in the US!]
Damn the man! For a fleeting second, it looked like powdered alcohol was going to grace the homes of the booze-loving people of America... until it was ripped out of our hands by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. Something about risk of death or whatever. Like we usually do 'round these parts, we decided to take matters into our own hands and make our own. We found a recipe online, ordered an ass-ton of Tapioca Maltodextrin from Amazon, threw in some grain alcohol and, yes, obviously snorted it. Kids, here's a guide to making your own powdered alcohol.
Assemble your ingredients. One tub of Tapioca Maltodextrin, a bottle of grain alcohol, a measuring cup, a sifter, two bowls, a spoon, and a total disregard for safety.
Pour in the booze. While making powdered alcohol, you want to find a spirit with a high ABV. I applied my encyclopedic knowledge of cheap, strong liquors and found a bottle of $18 grain alcohol. That's 96% alcohol, baby.
Stir it all up. If your concoction starts to take on the consistency of egg whites, you've put in too much booze. Overcompensate with the maltodextrin. It's (probably) not poisonous, so you (probably) won't die if you use too much.
