Do I have to let the moonshine sit?
With any homemade moonshine recipe, you are using a high proof grain alcohol. You want the moonshine to sit for 6-8 weeks to mellow out the strength of the alcohol. If not, you will have that burning sensation in your chest should you choose to try it out before that!
Should you want to enjoy the moonshine right away, you can switch out the 191 proof everclear with something less potent like vodka or everclear 151.
How to store apple pie moonshine?
With any moonshine it is not necessary to keep it in the refrigerator. You can store it in a sealed mason jar in a cool place in your kitchen. We have a few friends that enjoy keeping their moonshine in the freezer so it’s cool to drink.
What is apple pie moonshine made of?
This apple pie moonshine recipe consists of:

How long does apple pie moonshine last?
When using a high grain alcohol moonshine will last for years if stored properly. Chances are it won’t be around for very long!
How to Make Apple Pie Moonshine at Home
First, begin by making the Homemade Apple Cider and Apple Juice using SweeTango® Apples. If you are looking for a quicker version, simply use apple cider or apple juice found at your local farmers market or grocery store.
Once the cider and apple juice are made, simply combine all the ingredients in a large mouth mason jar. Stir until combined and allow to sit for 6-8 weeks if you are using a high proof vodka. If you want to enjoy it sooner, a low proof vodka is best, unless you like a strong moonshine!
