Banana Brandy Moonshine Recipe

Banana Brandy Moonshine Recipe - HowtoMoonshine

 

Ah, Banana Moonshine. The wet — literally — dream of any banana lover. 

 

This recipe is fairly simple to make and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. 

 

 

I can pretty much guarantee you will go bananas (pun intended) for this Banana Brandy Moonshine Recipe. Remember those squishy banana marshmallow candies I know you had all the time as a child? Well, this recipe is basically an alcoholic version of that. What could be better!

 

This moonshine recipe is a little different from the others you will find on our site. Instead of creating a delicious concoction and adding your homemade moonshine to it, I am going to teach you how to take these simple ingredients and turn them into a delicious sugary liquor itself. 

 

The key to this recipe is to make sure you pick only really ripe bananas that are full of flavour. Avoid the green ones. 

 

 

The best part about this type of moonshine is that it’s fairly simple to make. You don’t have to play around with temperature stages or sophisticated grain preparation methods. Just blend the bananas, add sugar, water, yeast, and there’s your mash bubbling away!

However, the yeast choice is an important factor here as you’ll be fermenting a slightly different type of sugar than you normally do with corn or grains.

Recipe Notes

 

  • In order to make home brew you can use any bananas (overripe will do better), but make sure they do not have any mold. The outer peel can be black but the pulp itself should remain useful. 

  • The moonshine will be ready to serve right away, but you can play around with different barrel-aging options to get a more unique, in-depth flavor. 

  • Picking the right type of yeast and moonshine still will have a significant impact on your final proof and flavor, so do your research first.  

 

I picture this drink tasting especially delicious around Christmas with a dash of Baileys and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Or, mix it with a little lemonade and a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the summer. It’s like adult banana candies!
