i am new to the game so to say... Lol, I am being told that the simplest way is the best way... 50 lbs cracked corn, 50 lbs of sugar, and 7 spoons of yeast, and 40 gallons of h2o, let it bubble in a food grade drum till it stops, approx 5-7 days, strain it and run it... It can't be that simple can it.

It's not...........but that would prolly make some alcohol, the yeast is gonna eat as much of the sugar as it can before it dies and unless you boil the corn and make the water very corny you are just wasting the corn. You really NEED a few other things to make something that is better than backwoods swill. Search recipes on this site and gather all the ingredients before you start you will be lots happier in the end, also what still are you gonna use?? If you use grampa's 100 year old boiler then after you spend your money and wait two weeks to still it you will be disappointed with it and just be pissed off.
Again, search this site for a recipe, gather what is called for and then start.

You asked if it was that easy to make alcohol. It is. However Heeler is correct. If you want to make something to be proud of it takes a few more steps and ingredients. Your recipe sounds almost like UJSSM (search for it) which calls for multiple fermentations using 90% of the same corn. I think after the corn soaks in a number of fermentations it is releasing more flavor than the first one. And remember "Safety first".
