Wanting to make a batch for the first time....
So instead of mason jars or re-purposed liquor bottles, could apple pie moonshine be bottled & corked like wine? Would it keep better/worse/longer???

Why not, all whiskey used to be bottled that way. If it didn't seal right wine makers wouldn't use corks. :twocents:

Yeah, I was torn. Finally gave in and added, just not as much as I typically do.

No sugar or just a little.  Too sweet for us.  Also after I cook and cool it I take out about 24-32oz for a virgin kids bottle at the holidays.  This definitely strengthens the mixture after everclear is added.  I calc it one time and I think it was upper 20's% so 50-60 proof.  We like it  this way better.  Less sweet and lil potent but still smooth and good.  The quality of apple juices/cider effects the flavor so pick quality and no pulp! :chuckle:

If you don't like it sweet you guys should try some honey in it. Of course I still add sugar cause I like it sweet :chuckle:

I hear ya man!  I can't stand yhe taste of  Everclear even after filtering it a dozen times. No matter how much stuff you mix it with you can't hide that nasty garbage corn taste.  :chuckle:  Yeah, I would be up for a sampling/ trade. Sounds fun.

I think a slice of tart granny Smith in the jar is the finishing touch to most of these recipes. 2c

About time to make up another batch as well. Need to get my hands on a couple more jugs of home grown corn, the stuff I've got left is too good to use for flavored stuff, smooth and clean, but sneaks up on ya quick!  :tup: Really wanting to get some nice fresh blackberries and try some blackberry stuff.

Didn't read back through this whole thread but just an FYI, Total Wines & More in Silverdale carries the 190 proof Everclear for $25 before tax.  Not sure when they started or if this extends to all TW&M or not.
