Since the prohibition period, moonshine has become an integral part of the American society. While alcohol is no longer prohibited, the practice of moonshine still continues. It may not be as big or on a high scale as before but you can easily make your own alcoholic beverages with the help of some ingredients. It adds a little twist to the taste and many people even prefer it to the regular alcoholic beverage.
There is a specific technique when it comes to making moonshine. A moonshine jar is an important component to it and here is why.
It helps keep the taste in
A moonshine jar is typically made out of glass. When you make moonshine, it is important you store it for a while, depending on the technique you use this can mean anywhere from days to weeks. Keeping it in a glass moonshine jar ensures that the taste of the shine develops properly and stays.
You can tell when it has aged
The good thing about using a glass jar is you can see the inside content of what is stored. With moonshine, it is important that you know when it has “aged” well so it can be consumed. Storing it in a glass jar allows you to do just that and notice the slight transition in color of the moonshine as it “ages”.
Moonshine doesn’t really age, it is however stored for a while so the taste in it develops properly but the storage time is a lot less compared to wine.
Develops a better taste
The thing with moonshine jar is that they are specifically made for moonshine. So they are made keeping in mind how storage and developing of taste should be for the best moonshine. So storing moonshine in a moonshine jar ensures that the taste of the moonshine develops in the right manner.
Keeps the moonshine secure
You can safely store the moonshine in cold temperature or room temperature with a moonshine jar. This may not be the case with a plastic bottle. The jar ensures that the moonshine remains as it should without it going bad or anything.
It looks much cooler
When you think moonshine, you think a mason jar. The two go hand in hand. Moonshine just looks cooler when you drink it from a mason jar. Not only does it ensure the moonshine stays fresh but the jar also gives it the “authentic” moonshine feel that you would get during the prohibition period.
