Good Whiskey Moonshine Recipe for your Moonshine Still from The Distillery Network

Good Whiskey - Our Favorite Moonshine Recipe


  • Malt 

  • Sugar

  • Rain Water

  • Yeast


      1. You can buy the malt from any big supermarket, if they don’t have it, you can order it. The best brands I can think of are Blue Ribbon and Red Top. The malt is liquid and comes in a can, the yeast comes in cakes.

      2. To every can of malt you add 5 gallons of warm water, dissolve 5 pounds and 1 cake of yeast. Mix all this together in a barrel made of plastic, stainless steel or copper, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES USE ALUMINIUM

      3. Keep it covered with cheese cloth to keep the bugs out. Keep it in a warm place till it ferments

      4. Afterwards, you can cook it off in your whiskey still

      5. After you run the whiskey, it is clear like water. You can color it by taking a piece of dry fruit wood or maple, burn the fruit wood over a flame till it is blackened real good, then drop the burned fruit-wood in your clear whisky. In a few days the whiskey will be the color of store-bought whiskey.
