Making Pruno (Prison Wine That Can Kill You)

August 27, 2019

Should we have Trever for this?
[editor’s note: Trever’s our bartender, you nerds] I feel like we should have Trever for this. Let’s promise that we never ever tell Trever
what we’re doing. He’ll be so disappointed in us. He will be, he’ll be sorely disappointed. [the modulated rogue]
The modern rogue makes prison wine. All right, so I suppose safety warnings right
out the gate. Nobody should try this at home, we are not
telling anybody that this is safe, smart, or something they should try. This is an awful idea, and it’s going to be
real gross. Oh my god, uh, yeah. All right, so we’re making prison wine, aka
“pruno?” There are a bunch of other names, but pruno
is the most popular one. Now we made our own homebrew beer using the
rogue’s brew kit, and for that it was a case of–you know, you had the wart and the mash,
and the… yeast and the hops. And basically, yeast eats sugar, poops out CO2
and alcohol, right? Yes. But this is not the technique we’re using
to make this alcohol? No, because in prison you have far fewer ingredients. This is basically just rotted fruit and sugar. Oh god, what are we doing? Yeah, yeah. It’s like those videos you see online of the
raccoon that ate all of the fruits on the vine. Sure, yeah. And is drunk and stumbling around, that’s
what we’re going to do! Right, okay so let’s get started. It is a lengthy process, but first we’re going
to start off by putting ten peeled oranges into a ziplock bag. Is this going to fit in there? Oh jeez. They’re already pretty ripe.>>Jason: Yeah, and it’s almost full.>>Jason: So ten peeled oranges, an eight ounce can
of fruit cocktail. With all the syrup in it, and everything? Yeah sure, why not? That’s where the good stuff is.>>Jason: I don’t even eat the fruits in fruit cocktail,
I just drink the goop. All right. Now, I don’t know why… No. No!>>Jason: Six teaspoons– Six teaspoons? –of ketchup. I’ll bet that it’s for the, um, the vinegar in
there. Oh, sure!>>Brian: The vinegar probably helps to keep it from
getting super infected or something.>>Brian: Heaping or level?>>Jason: Does it matter? And this is supposed to be good? No, it’s not! But it should result in something that is
anywhere from two percent alcohol by volume to fourteen percent alcohol by volume.
>>Brian: Okay all right, all right.>>Jason: Is that six?
>>Brian: Yep. And now… more sugar. Of course. 50 cubes of sugar. Are you kidding me? Yeah, not on the diet at all. Uh, okay. This is all just pure sugar.>>Brian: Ah there we go.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven.>>Brian: That’s seven, and that’s six more. Now the most popularized recipe for this comes
from a poem called Recipe For Pruno written by Jarvis Masters, a deathrow inmate in San
Quentin. 30. I want to hear it.>>Brian: 45. This is Recipe For Prison Pruno, a poem by
Jarvis Masters. “Take ten peeled oranges,
Jarvis Masters, it is the judgement and sentence of this court,” “one 8 oz. bowl of fruit cocktail,” “that the charged information was true,
squeeze the fruit into a small plastic bag,” This doesn’t rhyme at all! No, it doesn’t, but I’m going to stop there
because it’s– I don’t want to hear the Rime of the Ancient
Mariner. It’s kind of depressing as well. Uh, okay great.>>Brian: All right, so then now what?>>Jason: Now, that we have most of our prime ingredients in here. Prime! That’s a phrase. We’re going to zip it up. Okay. And you want to be careful not to puncture
the bag, but we’re going to start mashing it up.>>Brian: Okay, well here, let’s get rid of some of
this air, because I don’t want you to…>>Jason: Oh, to pop it!
Yeah, yeah.>>Jason: It’s going to be tough with the sugar though,
right?>>Brian: Well here, once we start mashing, hopefully
the liquids will dissolve the sugar. Will break down the sugar, yeah.>>Jason: Yeah, you gotta get in there
and really knead the sack.>>Brian: Hehehueh, “knead the sack.”>>Brian: Oh god, you smell that ketchup. Like it starts to smell good and then it’s
like, no. No it’s not. This is going to be tasty, I don’t even know
if we should ferment it, I think we should just drink it right now. You know what? I’m thinking right now is as good as it’s
going to get. It is not going to get any better in a week.>>Jason: I think that looks good.>>Jason: It looks like a good consistency.>>Jason: You really want to mash it up
until it’s like a paste. And now we’re going to add 16 ounces of tap
water. All right, do we have another bag? Yeah. And we’re adding how much, two cups of water? Uh, yeah 16 ounces. That, is our batch! Now what we’re supposed to do is heat it up,
we need to run it under warm water for about 20 minutes or so. Okay, and we’re trying to get it how warm? Not hot! I’m not liking this, okay. All right. Warm it up, and then we’re going to wrap it
up, and store it away in darkness. That is important. I’m going to start running this under warm
water. [water running] All right, we’ve got warm, pulpy goop, and
we don’t have yeast, but there is bacteria in there. And what is that bacteria called? Zymomonas mobilis is one, I don’t know if
it’s in there. I assume it is. It’s one of the bacteria that will–there’s
also a fungus who has a name I can not pronounce. But apparently fungus, bacteria, and yeast
are able to create alcohol so I’m going to assume bacteria’s the agent in this one. And what does bacteria like? Sugar, uh food, and dark! Yes. Because otherwise light has a sterilizing
effect, right? It will propagate in warm, dark places. So we’re going to wrap it up in this tarp
to keep it both warm and dark. And we’re going to tuck it away, and now every
day you’re going come out here and burp your baby and re-heat it for about 15 minutes under
warm water. I didn’t realize I was in for the long haul
on this.>>Brian: Now I have a commitment!>>Jason: You’re going to do that every day for nine
days, and then I’m going to come back out here and we’re going to toast. [weird, uncomfortable noises?] And then we’re going to die! Ah, okay. Let’s say, nutty idea, you’re not a fan of
the idea of bacteria fermentation. You want something cleaner, you want something
faster. I’ve heard there’s an easier way using just
yeast. Now, you’re supposed to use champagne yeast,
but I believe theoretically it should work just fine with baking yeast, so I figure we’ll
do two batches. This yeast is the yeast from a brewing kit
that we have over at ScamStuff, this yeast I just grabbed out of the kitchen, and you
can use any fruit juice. As long as it has 20 grams of sugar per serving,
orange juice has like 45 grams of sugar per serving, so there should be plenty of sugar
for the yeast in there. And if you use something like Welch’s grape
juice, that’s like 35 grams of sugar per serving. So I got two containers, we basically just
fill up the containers with orange juice.>>Brian: You don’t want it filled all the way up, because
it will increase in volume as the yeast eats the sugar and releases CO2, you’ll get foam
coming out the top so you want a gap up top. This one’s going to be so much easier and
less illicit, isn’t it?>>Brian: It’s also going to taste great, and get us
actually hammered, and not send us to the hospital. Now theoretically, if we’re actual brewers,
we should know exactly how many teaspoons of the stuff to put in. I just want to experiment, this is what happens
when an idiot tries it. – Here, you try that one.
– Okay. Let’s try a quarter teaspoon in there, and
I’ll do two of these for this since it’s a bigger volume.>>Brian: All right, now you notice it’s floating right
on top? So we’ll kind of get it mixed up, spread throughout. All right, now here’s the thing. Over the next two or three days, that yeast
is going to start eating sugar, pooping out alcohol, but it’s also going to release CO2. So if you leave this sealed, it’ll eventually
explode. So there’s two ways to handle it, we’re going
to do the fancy way with one of these proper valve stoppers. We’re going to put a little bit of water in
there, so as the CO2 goes out, no contaminants get in.>>Jason: Oh good, okay. And same thing with that. But, let’s say if you don’t have one of these,
you could just take a balloon and put it over the top. That latex barrier will keep outside things
from corrupting the inside, and then also all that gas will just inflate. Now that stopper here, as this fills up with
CO2, watch. The gas bubbles will start letting it out
like that.>>Jason: Oh sure. So soon as tomorrow we should start seeing
bubbles coming up, meaning it’s fermenting. How long is this one supposed to take?>>Brian: Two to three days. – Oh, really?
>>Brian: Yeah.>>Jason: Much more easy. Yeah, safer, better. Get your hands on yeast. I do not trust that bacteria doing the job
down there.>>Jason: And now we wait.
>>Brian: Yeah. [smooth hip hop beat plays under the light ambiance of a nearby road, representative of the industrial nature of the process of video production but also contrasted with a fairly carefree attitude, not only with alcohol production, but also captioning] Ten days, burp this thing like a nasty, filthy,
petulant, diaper-soaked baby. You didn’t, you had someone else do it. I did it, like half the time. Did you really?! Yeah. Oh yeah, yeah. Did you dip into the stash? Oh god, no, okay. There were flies buzzing around this thing. Really?! And every time you opened– It’s double-bagged! You burp it, and just take a little aromatic
whiff. Okay. Hooh! It’s uh, stings the nostrils. May I? It’s pungent. Oh god! Oh– [laughter] It’s just a bunch of rotted fruit that’s been
in ketchup, that’s been kept warm. Okay, what do we do with it now? What do we do with it now? Okay, we gotta run it through a strainer,
we have to run it through some cheesecloth. All right, well. Let’s get to it.>>Brian: All right, cheesecloth strainer, coming up. Okay. Oh-ugh.>>Jason: I’m just going to dump it. Okay, let me make sure I’m holding… Yeah, tighten it up.>>Jason: There we go. Good, good good.>>Jason: Got it?
>>Brian: Yeah. – Okay.
– Oh god! Ohhh, it’s splashing on me! I’m sorry, I’m sorry! Oh god! Oh I can’t escape the stench! Well you know what comes next? You having a rough time? I–a little bit. Because that’s going in our bodies. Yeah, do we need to squeeze it? Grab those opposite edges from me, so we can
lift it up like a bag. Euggghhh. Oh, wow. Okay. I’m just going to get in there and do it,
man.>>Brian: It’s a thing.>>Jason: I’m just doing it. This is probably the worst thing that we’ve
done on this show. More than we’ll ever, ever need. Here, put it, there you go. I just don’t want any of this to splash anywhere. This is where I have to be very, very careful
not to spill any.>>Jason: See it doesn’t look bad! Holy crap, man. We did it!
We made prison wine. We did! This is authentic, prison-grade hooch. Is it safe? No! What do you mean, “no?” Considering that this is a lot of mold and
bacteria, it’s rotten fruit… you can get botulism and die. Right, uh, that was a good experiment and
we made some damn fine prison wine. If this was a laboratory, if I could vouch
for everything being clean, I might be tempted to give this a try, but I definitely saw fruit
flies crawling in and out of that thing as it sat in a corner of this warehouse for ten
days straight, and if you’re telling me that botulism’s on the menu, I’m going to say good
on us for having made that, but I am super stoked to try these. The pruno fermented over ten days using bacteria
and mold, this is using yeast, so it only takes two to three days, so I came back two
days ago and re-made this. The big one has the brewing yeast in it, the
small one had the bakers yeast. And I don’t know if it’s just the container
size, but look at the difference in how much out-gassing is happening on the fancy yeast.>>Jason: Yeah, this one’s practically percolating and
this one’s not really doing it much at all. Yeah, it’s hard to know how much booziness
is in there. I’m guessing that this’ll just tastes like old,
warm orange juice. This one I expect to have some kick and actually
be pretty good. Okay. All right, you down for this? Yeah! Now this one, unlike the pruno, is perfectly
safe. You ain’t going to get me saying that! I mean, as far–as far as I know, two-day-old
orange juice with some yeast in it, I don’t think is going to kill us. I don’t recommend anybody try any of this
at home, do your own research. Don’t blame us. But I do know there are commercial products
that are intended to do exactly what we’re doing, so I have to assume… it’s not that
bad.>>Jason: What a ringing endorsement! “I have to assume it’s not that bad.” Put that on the label. Yes. – Here’s to swimmin’ with bow-legged women.
– Oh my god. It just tastes like orange juice. – It tastes like orange juice.
– Yeah. And you can taste the yeast, you can definitely
smell the yeast. Yeah, I normally have an okay palette when
it comes to tasting when there’s alcohol in something. If you gave this to me I would just assume
it’s sparkling orange juice. Meanwhile this guy’s a roiling cauldron!>>Jason: All right.
>>Brian: They’re singing to us, Jason!>>Brian: Now this looks clearer,>>Brian: I’m tempted to think…>>Jason: Oh, it’s fizzing!
>>Brian: No!>>Jason: Yeah. Oh my god! Oh, wow! You can smell the hoochiness. Oh, yeah. This really doesn’t smell much different than
that. Not to me. It smells way, way different. Maybe it was the notes of ketchup I was getting
from the other one. This one seems fine. It has a good nose on it. Hmm. Oh wow, okay. Oh very different. Yeah, so uh, way more bubblier. This is super sparkling orange. Not as sweet. Not nearly as sweet, which tells me that this
yeast has been doing its job, munching up the sugar, pooping out the alcohol. Uh, these guys are lazy bastards, all just
hanging out at the bottom. I’m not feeling it yet, but… I mean, it seems to me like, if you’re going
to go to prison, might as well smuggle some yeast up your butt, for when you’re there. This gets a huge thumbs up, so I’m going to
say, if you want to do this at home: number one, do your research; number two, get some
champagne yeast or brewers yeast and go to town. This was exactly two days, and I put a whole
bunch in there, I wanted to make sure that this was working. And it’s easy! It doesn’t require any baby-sitting. No, this one required nothing, that one was
demon scary, but this one was great. I don’t think Trever would approve. What, you don’t want to bring him a jug?

    Another version of Pruno that is made in prison is just orange peels in a bag that you leave alone with some warm water for about 2-3 weeks and uhhh, done. It's an easy version. (It's something like this if I remember correctly, I haven't been to prison before but I know people who have.)

    The yeast needs A LOT longer to work. Three days might give you 1 percent ABV.

    You need about 3-4 weeks for the yeast to finish working. If it’s still fizzing, the yeast is still not done yet.

    If you do this, you can get about 13 percent with bread yeast, and up to 25 percent with winemaker’s yeast.

I sent him to A unit, he lost his job and got I gave him a conduct report. It isn't just about it being able to kill you, people sell that stuff for quite a bit (it isn't expensive to us, but when you make $0.15 an hour, $5 per drink is a bit expensive).

    I thought prison shine was fermented with whatever bread they had from lunch, dinner or breakfast. Because of the yeast content in the bread? If im not misteaken its whatever fruit they can get ahold of, fruit cups, oranges and any other fruits, even fruit peels! Sugar packs when and if they get them for coffee, slices of loaf bread, dinner rolls, any bread product with yeast content in it that they may get and of course some water or fruit juice. Throw it all in a plastic bag or anything that will seal up, mash it all up, seal it up and leave it somewhere dry, dark and cool. Inmates will "go in" with a group of other inmates on a batch and contribute whatever resources needed to make a run of prison shine. Or one inmate may be lucky enough to have all the things needed and the knowledge to produce a good run of prison shine and make a batch of his own. Which isnt unheard of but resources and the knowledge to produce a safe batch are very limited to prisoners. So they mainly come together and throw in on a batch using bread as there source of yeast.

    You can infect your junk with the high proof yeast before you go in. That way the guards will never be able to confiscate your yeast infection and your pruno will out compete the other pruno salesmen for strength.

  • Reply Harvey Harbicht July 27, 2019 at 5:37 am

    OH, you make that large jug SO wrongly. Add 1 cup of sugar per quart of juice. That stuff was nowhere near done fermenting. You have to wait until ALL the bubbling stops (about 5-10 days maybe 2 weeks). Then give it another week to outgas and all the yeast to settle to the bottom. Then use a plastic hose to siphon it out into another container being sure to NOT get the crud at the bottom. Next step let it sit for a few days to settle. Lastly, decant it again into a new jug. NOW you can drink it or better yet, let it age for a few months. In order of effectiveness you can use Bread Yeast, Fast-Rise Bread yeast, wine yeast or champagne yeast. Don't use Distillers Yeast unless you want to make nasty paint thinner-tasting wine. lol

    This receipt is b.s. You don't use ketchup or run it in water. Misinformation.

    Anyone think they should re-do it in a "sterile environment" so we can actually see them drink it?

    this reminds me of the wasps in the UK eating rotting fruit and then getting drunk and angry and attacking people

    saw this video when it first came out, was drinking home made cider 4 weeks after that and now I have 3 bottles of vodka, 2 bottles of whiskey and a half bottle of butterscotch schnapps sitting in the cupboard and will be making 4L of vodka tomorrow. It's cheap, fun and much better then the rubbish in the shops. Thanks, Modern Rogue

    Lol u dont need ketchup or vinager they are just trying to make it less appetizing so people wont try it at home. Ps oranges would be about the nastiest thing to use. Could just use sugar packet fruit juice/water and bread.

  • Reply Adamsgr8 August 6, 2019 at 4:10 am

    Anyone else actually do this without sugar, cause you dont get that behind bars, in a trash bag so it doesnt burst, and also throw bread in it

    I can't try this at home, but prison is not my home.

    The second method works best with sweetened ruby grapefruit juice and some added brown sugar/sugar in the raw (assuming you're making it at home and not in jail/prison). It legitimately tastes fresh as hell and goes great with a bit of white rum (sweet) or gin (complex) to up the final drunk factor. I've gotten really into home fermentation and make kombucha (jasmine green tea base with a secondary ferment of strawberry, brown sugar, and rosewater…strongly recommended), pickles (ginger carrot strips pickles are one of the finest foods on earth), sauerkraut (the real stuff is amazing…if you think you hate sauerkraut, try natural fermented instead of the boiled vinegar shit), hooch, and fermented chutneys (my tamarind raspberry chutney is really good, especially on basa/swai and goat steak).

    no bread?

  • Reply Kenny Ytrup August 18, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    I did it with 4 liters of orange juice, a pack of raisins and you need two packs of baking yeast not just teaspoons 😀 Then 100g of white sucker. Mix it in a 5 liter container and put it on the radiator for 14 days with a ballon on top. It taste like orange juice with white wine and is very potent 😉 While it brews it may stink a bit hahaha

  • Reply SPYIDR 18 August 19, 2019 at 2:40 am

    U could do orange slices, water ,bread and granulated sugar
    But at home you could do juice concentrate that has sugar in it, wine yeast, and a airlock for the top

  • Reply Thomas Anderson August 19, 2019 at 3:31 am

    The reason the bakers yeast did not work is because bakers yeast has to be proofed before it can activate, this process is usually done by placing 1 packet of yeast in a 4th cup of water that is at least 115° F (46° C) and allowing it to "proof" for about 5 minutes, you will be able to tell if it is proofed by the amount that it foams

    There’s no possible way Trevor can know anything about this-

    In a later episode . . .
    Trevor- I don’t know if this is Orange Juice, or Modern Rogue’s Pruno.

    😹 I wish you guys could’ve made a skit out of it. Trevor could’ve found the Pruno and just did that thing where you pinch in the middle of your eyebrows and then just told you guys “Don’t you $?)!&” touch this! Don’t you &)!£$& touch this, Brian! . . . :)” To reference the note that was for Brian about the tap.

    Pruno is now served in the Janneman State cafeteria
