Buckin’ Mule” Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe – 40 proof (20% alcohol)

The Basic recipe will make 40 proof apple pie moonshine. It’s how most folks make it and is a perfect balance of alcohol, apple flavor, and spices.

Step 1 -

Combine the following ingredients:

  • 1 entire apple pie moonshine spice mix tin.
  • 6 cups of 80 proof grain alcohol (real moonshine is best, but vodka will work if you don’t have any shine).
  • 4 cans (48 fl. oz) of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate.

Step 2 -

Leave the ingredients sit at room temperature for 24-48 hours. Basically, 24 hours if you’re in a hurry, 48 hours if you want the best possible flavor. However, don’t leave it sit longer than that. Too much flavor will be pulled out of the spices and your apple pie shine will start to become ever so slightly bitter.

Step 3 -

Filter the ingredients through a fine wire mesh strainer (or cheesecloth, or coffee filter). Transfer into quart jars (you’ll need 3). If you want you can pull the cinnamon sticks out of the spent spices and re-add one to each quart. You know, to make it look pretty.

At this point, your apple pie shine is ready to drink! We suggest refrigerating if you don’t drink it all immediately.

Fire On The Mountain” Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe – 95 Proof (47.5% alcohol)

The “Red Line” recipe will make 95 proof apple pie moonshine. This recipe right here isn’t for amateurs. It makes the kind of apple pie moonshine that sneaks up on you, grabs hold, and makes you wonder “what in the heck happened last night” when you wake up the next morning.  Hold on to your liver, cause it could be a wild ride!

Step 1 -

Combine the following ingredients:

  • 1 apple pie moonshine spice mix tin.
  • 6 cups of 190 proof grain alcohol. Use moonshine if you have it. If not, use 190 proof Everclear.
  • 4 cans (48 fl. oz.) of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate.
  • OPTIONAL: add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to balance additional alcohol.

Step 2 -

Leave the ingredients sit at room temperature for 24-48 hours. 48 hours is best, but 24 will do if you’re in a hurry. Though, don’t go beyond 48 because the alcohol solution will pull too much flavor out of the spices and will turn the mixture bitter.

Step 3 -

Filter the ingredients through a fine wire mesh strainer (or cheesecloth, or coffee filter). Transfer into quart jars (you’ll need 3). If you want you can pull the cinnamon sticks out of the spent spices and re-add one to each quart. You know, to make it look pretty.

At this point, your apple pie shine is ready to drink! We suggest refrigerating if you don’t drink it all immediately.
