Don’t become bear poop.

One of the awesome things about beer is that it will keep you alive. If you have nothing else to eat or drink, you can live off of beer for months. An unopened growler will stay good for a whole damn year and will work for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you’re a portable sized guy like me or two if you’re one of those bastards that are easily confused with bigfoot.
You’ll be miserable if you don’t have anything else to eat but you’ll be alive.
Hmm, well… survival or just camping?
Food and cooking at least 300’ away from where you plan to sleep. And then you better hang it high up, and correctly.
Until scurvy sets in?
You are going to have to murder your neighbors to survive if it gets really bad.
Is there a difference?
That’s why I included the video on spruce beer.
Camping is being there because you want to be, survival is being there because you have to be.
Obviously beer with a side salad
Yes there is.
Making beer from scratch is complex
You gotta get the grain, soak it, let it germinate, and at the right time, when the germinating seed has converted as much starch to sugar as possible, but before it turns that sugar into cellulose, kill the seed and extract the sugar
Just the space needed to carry out this process and the hygiene required is taxing
I’ve made good beer from malt extract and dried hops. Once you have the kit and a routine, it’s straight forward enough, and as good as your average craft brew
Hygiene is the key
Salting pork, I prefer brine pickling
It’s straight forward in that you need x kg of salt to x litres of water, but liberal enough that it’s about right if a potato floats
After too long, though edible, the meat becomes un palatable
Dry curing is more of a relationship. The meat must be stroked and cherished, but produces a longer term supply
Last batch of hogs I tried a new technique
You put the cut into a zip lock bag with so much salt per kg, stick it in the fridge and just turn it every day and after so many days per kg, you get a semi dry cure. This can be air dried
Again, hygiene is the key, but unlike with beer, where a bad batch results in, at best, poor vinegar, and at worst, shit, the consequences of using spoilt pork, or spoiling good pork by malprocess, could be a death penalty
IMO, making jam from autumn berries and having a solid foundation in functional botany are the key to wilderness survival nutrition, and spuds the key to post apocalypse survival
I kind of merge the two and pretend there are zombies in the woods that could attack at any time.
That way I’m prepped when the racoons come for our belt buckles.
