Vodka is a distilled product with near %40 alcohol whereas rice wine has only %3 like beer.
for dehydration you can use rice wine but for tincturing you need vodka. Yes OHN is the most expensive KNF food but it goes a long way.
I make cheese and has excess whey. This is very acidic. I add a pouch of rock dust to it and stir from time to time. With the increased surface area of rock dust as well as the acidic environment of whey, it leaches minerals to the water. I then strain and use the water in my aquaponics, wicking beds and garden.
One idea is to get rods of different metals from the internet and using a colloidal silver machine, electrolysing them to leach the ions into the water. It would be hard to get the diverse metals though.
Still, I think using rock dust is a better option as it provides a diverse range of minerals and ones there are enough worms in your soil to process it.
Another option is to mine the minerals using tap-rooted plants like dandelion, comfrey, fennel, milk parsley, sea holy, coltsfoot and preparing a weed tea using these plants.
Diversity is the key.
Chuck it. Mucor mold or pencillium roqueforti started to grow.
