Officials Look For Stills at Prison Farm PUEBLO, Colo. (UPI)-Colorado State Penitentiary officials today were looking for stills at the penitentiary's honor farm, located a few miles west of here.

Any place in any prison where fruit juices, sugar, yeast, and grain are available, convicts will make home brew." The convict, Melvin B.
