Different moonshine recipes for you to try out at home
Moonshine recipes are in plenty. Not only can you get them on the internet but you can also browse through various books in your library. There are different ways in which you can flavor your moonshine with different fruit making it really delicious. Moonshine can be easily flavored using peaches, watermelons, apple cinnamon, strawberry, raspberry etc. However using these fruit will automatically dilute and reduce alcohol content of your homemade moonshine.
Moonshine recipes include Blackbeard’s Rum which is made from brown sugar (2 lbs), 1 gallon good water, a cup of honey for every batch of ten gallons. Make sure the hydrometer reading does not exceed 100. About 3 ounces of yeast is to be used for every 10 gallons mash. Heat a quarter of the water to 130 degrees enough to get the sugar melted and then stir the sugar in and lastly the honey. Pour this into a fermenter and cool this to 80 degrees by pouring cold water. Add your yeast and let it stay for around 6 -14 days in order to ferment.
Make Stonewall’s Southern Whiskey with the following ingredients. Take Corn syrup (1 quart) for 1 ½ gallon of water and a cup of honey per batch of ten gallons. The hydrometer should read around 65. Add around 3 ounces of good quality yeast to every 10 gallons of “mash”. Heat 1/4th of the water to 120-130 degrees so that the syrup melts and then add the honey to it. This mixture should be poured into the fermenter and cool mineral or bottled water should be poured into it to bring the temperature down to 80 degrees. Add the yeast and let it ferment for around 14 days.
Watermelon-peach moonshine brandy can be made with a large watermelon and around 10 peaches, 1 ¼ cup of golden raisins that are chopped, juice of around 15 limes, sugar (25 cups), 5 gallons of good water and yeast. Juice should be extracted from the peaches and watermelon. Save the pulp and boil it in around 5 quarts of water for half an hour. Strain and add more water to the juice. Wait till this is lukewarm and add the remaining water along with the other ingredients excluding the yeast, so that it can make 5 gallons in all. Pour this into the first fermentation vessel and make sure it is well covered. After 24 hours have passed, add the yeast. Keep stirring every day for about a week and strain the raisins. After fitting the fermentation trap you should set it aside for around 4 weeks.
