DIRECTIONS

  • How to Make Moonshine at Home.
  • Things Needed
  • Water
  • Cornmeal
  • Sugar
  • Yeast
  • Pressure Cooker
  • Copper Tube
  • Vessel (to collect moonshine)
  • Charcoal
  • Instructions
  • Go to the market and buy 25 pounds of cornmeal, 100 pounds of sugar, 100 gallons of water and 6 ounces of yeast.
  • Next, you will be required to collect the necessary equipments, like a few large pots, a large pressure cooker and a coiled copper pipe.
  • Put water in the pot and place it on stove. Keep on boiling it until it reaches a rolling boil.
  • Add cornmeal to the water. The resultant mixture will be known as mash.
  • Keep aside the mash and let it cool down, till it is warm to the touch.
  • Now, add sugar and yeast to the warm mash.
  • Again, keep it aside and let it ferment for 4 to 5 days.
  • Keep on checking the mash and when it stops bubbling, it means that it is ready. At this stage, the mash is known as sour mash or beer.
  • Put the sour mash into the pressure cooker and keep it on fire, till it goes up to 173 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • At this temperature, the alcohol content of the mixture will start rising to the surface.
  • With the help of a coiled copper pipe, passed through cold water, trap vaporized alcohol in a separate vessel.
  • As the vapors from the cooker pass through the cold copper tubing, they will slowly condense into the liquid called moonshine.
  • Finally, filter the moonshine through charcoal, making it absolutely fit for consumption.
