It’s funny, if you didn’t point it out, I wouldn’t have noticed anything wrong with showing a group of young men how wine is made!

Of course, if you were to try this in a Public school in 2012 you’d be run out of the state

A bunch of 14 year olds? That is seriously fucked up.

re: #2 Learned Mother of Zion

A bunch of 14 year olds? That is seriously fucked up.

Why?
I knew how at 14, or I should say I knew the process, but didn’t make any alcohol.

Having the knowledge and using it doesn’t necessarily follow. Attitude and guidance make a huge difference.

When I was a junior in high school, we had to do a science project for chem or bio (forget now which one). My partner and I convinced one of the chem teachers to show us how to distill alcohol from corn syrup. He was game, and after some time, we had produced enough hootch to fill a small jar. No idea what the proof was, but close to 180. Also completely undrinkable, because we used rubber tubing that ruined the taste.

I should note this was in the mid-70s, when the drinking age in NY was 18 and people were not so uptight about teenagers learning about real life and stuff in school.

As for teaching 14 year olds how to produce wine, I have no problem with it. This wine was for religious purposes (16%, though? damn!) and wine-making has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. They learned about biology, chemistry, food science and their own faith traditions. What’s wrong with that? If they drink it on the sly, it’s not going to lead them into a life of misery and drunkenness. Lighten up.

Well, it would be against our personal religion for our fourteen year old son to taste any, but learning how it is made would not send me over the edge.

We have done cheese making and paper making here in the house just to learn about it.

Messy. Both processes are messy.
