  1. You DO need to seal the jars so that outside air doesn’t get in, this allows the flavors to meld during the steeping process.

  2. So I live in Missouri where it is legal to make moonshine can I make the lemonade in the Moonshine then add the other ingredients to it will be ok

  3. I put it in empty glass booze bottles or canning jars and keep it in the refrigerator or freezer. I’ve kept the apply pie moonshine in the frig for over a year with no problem.

  4. It is better if you store it in a dark cool place. Doesnt need to be in a fridge. Also if you add a cinn stick when cooking, it will help take some “bite” out of it if you cant wait to drink it.

    I have never sealed any of my moonshine jars. I fill them to the top. The everclear will kill any germs in the jars. A hot bath in my opinion is not recommended as the alcohol can start to evaporate.

    • Todd….I’ve never used lemon drop candy but it should work. I’ve made Jolly Rancher shine and it came out real good. Take 20 pieces of candy and put in a pan with a small amount of water.Heat on stove until the candy melts.Add this to a pint jar of shine.Shake…The longer it sits the better it is but you can drink right away
