How to Make Moonshine
Of course, not everyone has moonshine in their cupboard for this recipe. In fact, many people get inspired to start making their own moonshine after seeing all the delicious possibilities in recipes just like this one. If you are considering making your own moonshine, but are worried it is too hard, it’s time to reconsider.
While making moonshine is an art form. It can be as simple or as complicated as you make it. Many serious shiners spend years perfecting their perfect whiskey bland. Others choose to make a simple sugar shine because they are after something quick and easy. Either way, making moonshine is a fun hobby that anyone can enjoy.
We often suggest making sugar shine for recipes where you will be flavoring your moonshine. The reason for this suggestion is because sugar shine is easy to make and cheap to produce. While you will get a less tasty sippin’ shine; it is the perfect option for flavoring. When you flavor your shine it will take on the flavor of the ingredients you add. So using a cheaper shine makes the most sense here.
The Right Equipment for the Job
When making sugar shine we love to use our Mist 1 Gallon Air Still. The Mist is the perfect option for those who want a simple machine that takes up little space and can work at the touch of a button.
The Mist is about the size of your electric kettle and just as easy to use. Simply press a button and get ready to collect your shine.
This is our easiest still to use, which is perfect for beginners or those looking for a simple alternative. It also uses no water which makes it ideal for the cottage, camper or boat.
