I basically tried this cuz I live in a state now that even sells Everclear.
I use it for lots of other activities, besides drinking it to the tune of a 1.75 liter bottle a month, and cleaning out the vape pen. the cost is prohibitive, but what's some spare change when you are getting the real deal.
what made them water the stuff down for sale elsewhere? I noticed they add acetone to the 91%EtOH they sell at Rite Aids so that their stuff can't be drunk, quite a bit cheaper, so you know it's not the cost of production.
I was surprised to find that they use alcohol in Listerine as well, since I was told by my parents that they use methanol and it was poisonous to drink. (like lots of things they told me were also not true)
