Mad Jack's Corn Squeezery

You enter a tumbledown shack, the main feature of which is a large device made mostly of burbling copper tubes which takes up most of the floor space. A secondary feature is a man dressed in patched hides, with his bushy white hair and beard sticking out crazily.

"Howdy there, fellerlittle lady!" he says, enthusiastically. "They call me Mad Jack, and this here's Mad Jack's Corn Squeezery! Care ta try a glass of our highest octane? Hee hee!"

"You make booze out of corn?" You sniff the air, and your eyes start to water.

"Ayep! Well, mostly corn! Hee hee! Potent stuff -- kicks like a mule, lemme tell ya! Hee hee!"

You rifle through your pockets and determine that you currently have X hobo nickels.
