The Science Behind Proofing Moonshine

On shows like Moonshiners, the characters always shake mason jars or bottles with moonshine to determine how much alcohol is in them. So in this video I explore proofing moonshine with a hydrometer, with the shake test, and the old school method with gunpowder.

Thank you so much for watching this video! If you would like to suggest a video idea please leave it in the comments, and if you enjoyed please like and subscribe! It was my pleasure to add a bit of science to your day!
