Intrepid dude makes his own powdered alcohol, promptly snorts it

Homemade powdered alcohol

This week, we were formally introduced to the powdered alcohol Palcohol... and then told the government was holding up its release. That's when one courageous writer took matters into his own hands and concocted his very own batch with Tapioca Maltodextrin, grain alcohol, and a sifter. Before snorting it, of course.

Snorting powdered alcohol

The verdict? Not great. Unsurprisingly, the stuff burns pretty fiercely and tastes weird. But judge for yourself by reading the entire account over at Supercompressor.

Kristin Hunt is a food/drink staff writer and has no immediate plans to snort powdered alcohol. Follow her at @kristin_hunt.
