This moonshine mash recipe uses frozen berries. Using frozen fruit is a great way to not only save money but also enjoy the fresh taste of seasonal fruit all year round.
The easiest way to make the best tasting peach moonshine is to use (peach pie) spices and peach juice concentrate.
They will begin to lose their bright color and some flavor after one year but they will not “go bad” because the alcohol is the preservative. I usually have no problem using them up within one year. Imagine that!
Step 3: The Recipe
For example, for every 1 gallon of water, you would use 1 pound of sugar, and 1 pound of corn meal. So for a 5 gallon mash (which is recommended for your first batches of moonshine) you would use 5 gallons of water, 5 pounds of corn meal, and 5 pounds of sugar.
So, you want to add fruit to your homebrew. Well the amount of fruit you’ll need depends on the beer recipe and the type of fruit you are adding, but generally 3-7 pounds will do for a 5 gallon batch of beer.
The standard recipe for making alcohol is to ferment your chosen berry, leaves, fruit or vegetable in a mixture of hot water and sugar. Allow the blend to cool, add your yeast and leave it for at least a week.
The process of distillation heats the fermented liquid to a boiling point, captures the vapors that come off the boiling liquid, then recondenses it back into liquid as it cools. This concentrates the alcohol levels, but also requires separation of desirable and undesirable elements.
It costs around $8 per gallon for the sugar and wheat to make the moonshine. The selling price is around $25 a gallon if sold in bulk, or $40 for retail price.
Definitely! Moonshine is traditionally sipped straight, right out of the jar. You can also drink it in shots.
Both Everclear and Moonshine are unaged spirits; however, Everclear is made from grain and Moonshine from corn. Everclear is a brand name of a neutral-tasting, very potent grain alcohol. Moonshine is a general term used to describe illegally produced corn whiskey.
A 5 gallon run will yield 1-2 gallons of alcohol. A 8 gallon run will yield 1.5-3 gallons of alcohol. A 10 gallon run will yield 2-4 gallons of alcohol.
Make sure your moonshine still is very well sealed. … Always dispose of the first bit of moonshine, in order to avoid contamination with methanol (which has a lower boiling point than ethanol). Contagion with methanol can be noticed by the bad smell and taste of your moonshine and needs to be avoided, since it is toxic.
If a person wishes to legally distill alcohol, they have two options. The first option is to obtain a Federal Distilled Spirits Permit. This is the permit that industry giants like Jack Daniels and Makers Mark distilleries possess, which makes it legal for them to distill and distribute to the public.
Place your chosen fruits, herbs, and spices into a large container of low wines or head/tail spirits and let it sit for a week or two. The flavor of your ingredients will gradually infuse the solution. Add this solution to the bottom of the thumper keg to impart the flavors it contains.
In order to reuse your mash this is how it works. You will use your old corn and yeast already present from the previous run, which should also still contain a good lot of beer still left behind. … Now you can run the mash again.
1) SWEET CORN (Zea mays convar.
Sweet Corn could be used to make bourbon but it’s typically the type that you’d buy at a grocery store to eat as corn on the cob, frozen corn or canned corn. It comes in white, yellow and coloured varieties but regardless of type is usually just labelled as “corn” in grocery stores.
Turbo yeast is a special type of yeast that yields higher alcohol (ABV%) levels and in a shorter period of time. This is in contrast to normal bakers yeast which isn’t a valid type of yeast to use when producing alcohol or spirits of any kind.
Fermentation. Store the mash to ferment for 1-2 weeks at room temperature. Temperature is important if it gets too cold the fermentation can stop because the yeast goes dormant.
