You don’t brew alcohol, you brew beer. You DISTILL alcohol, which requires a still, heat and cooling water.

Are these all available in a prison cell?

I think it was a case of drinking rubbing alcohol.

Prison alcohol is made from whatever fruit or sometimes even bread that can be found, and it is not distilled. A can of peaches or fruit cocktail is perfect for the purpose. Aside from that, the other essential ingredient is yeast, a commodity more valuable than bullets in prison. A former inmate once gave me a very detailed description of the brewing process which sometimes took place in a toilet bowl, and produced a fermented beverage known as Hooch or sometimes Pruno. The higher quality brew was filtered through a T shirt, but this wan not considered essential.
