I'm always interested in supply amounts people say will work. That's why I posted this and the Gear and Grub post a little further down in this section.

The attachment is an excerpt from Horace Kephart's Camp Cookery book.

Only a half pint of Brandy? For two weeks and four men? Must be used as smelling salts...

Kephart is a great resource. His books are pretty well regarded by the bushcraft community and outdoor enthusiasts and for good reason. This is a perfect example of why. Thanks for posting this one.

Page 11 of the download - Finally, a half pint of brandy, religiously reserved for brandy sauce, is worth its weight.
Page 143 of the download - Brandy Sauce.—Butter twice the size of an egg is to be beaten to a cream with a pint of sugar and a tablespoonful of flour. Add a gill of brandy. Set the cup in a dish of boiling water and beat until the sauce froths.

So it is used for cooking, rather than drinking... I can understand that.
