I have never made this but was asked to post the recipe for someone in chat. I looked for an email address to ask permission first but could not find one so I will just say that the recipe belongs to Charlie Porter and the web site is I posted it just like he has it there. Good luck and dont shine and drive. I have no idea about prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 20 gallons mineral water
  • 15 lbs sugar
  • 12 gallon dried cracked corn (like in chicken feed) or 12 gallon dried whole corn (like in chicken feed)
  • 1 can blue ribbon malt syrup (This gives it a smooth flavor)


  1. Stir often and keep the mixture in a warm place and it will soon start to work.
  2. Just before it stops working (when it gets a lacy bubble on top) put it in the "can" to cook.
  3. When this starts to boil, it comes out of the end of the coil.
  4. Put the jug under the condenser spout and collect the run.
  5. Cut the first gallon with water as it runs to about 120 proof.
  6. Add burnt sugar and water here if you need the color.

I tried a recipe that was very close to this one (16lbs of sugar). I'll tell you right now, it doesn't taste very well, LOL. But for those of you that taste is important, If you mix it with other beverages, it may taste alot better. My personal favorite beverage to mix it with is cherry soda, Cherokee Red was the brand that I used. But for those with the objective of getting drunk, it definitly does that! Overall, it's a great recipe that's easy and inexpensive to make. The hardest part is making a still. There's a free guide to making your own still here: / Moonshine / still.pdf 5 out of 5 stars.
