Strawberry Brandy
Nothin' like a good summertime brandy!
  1. Put strawberries into a bowl and let thaw.
  2. Pour one gallon of water into a pot, warm to about 90°F, then add 5 pounds of sugar, mix well until fully dissolved.
  3. Once the strawberries have thawed mash them into puree, then add the sugar syrup.
  4. Dump the mix into the fermenter then add the remaining 4 gallons of water.
  5. Add yeast, close the lid, put airlock in place and let ferment completely for about 10 days at room temperature.
  6. Once the fermentation is done, strain the wash off any solids in the fermenter into the still using a siphon tube.
  7. Distill as you normally do, divide into cuts then package for storage and sippin'!
Using fresh strawberries is definitely a better option than store-bought frozen, but it makes the recipe rather seasonal.

You can play around with different types of yeast to get different flavors, read our guide on the best types of moonshine yeast.
