Apple Pie Moonshine Recipeapplepiemoonshinejar

Here’s a video on making your very own 40 proof apple pie moonshine.

You’ll need 3 things to make it:

  • Apple Juice Concentrate (4 cans)
  • 80 proof neutral grain alcohol, such as vodka or Everclear (6 cups)
  • Apple pie spices or just plain old cinnamon (9 sticks, or 1 tin of apple pie moonshine spice mix)

Combine the alcohol, apple juice concentrate, and alcohol in a pot. Let it sit overnight. Pour through strainer into 3 quart jars.

    I made the above recipe using a jar of 100 proof Ole Smoky Original moonshine. It tasted too strong for me, so I added a 5th can of the apple juice concentrate to help balance the flavors. I think the apple pie spice kit is a wonderful addition in making homemade ‘Shine. I plan on ordering several more & experimenting w/ additional AP recipes.

    How much does the four cans of concentrate drop the ABV%? How much does it affect the proof?

      Water freezes at 32°F and the freezing point of ethanol alcohol is -173.2°F. Apple Pie moonshine is a mixture of both alcohol and water (juice) so it sounds like the juice froze and the alcohol did not.
