But if you’re trying to make an authentic moonshine, this is all there is to it!
- Pour five gallons of water into the pot and bring it to 165 degrees F.
- When temperature is reached remove from heat and add the maize, making sure to stir well.
- For five minutes stir the mash constantly and every five minutes after that stir for a few seconds.
- Add the malted barley, and stir in well until the temperature falls to 152 degrees F.
- Cover the mash and let sit for 90 minutes making sure to stir every 15 minutes.
- Use an immersion chiller or let the mash cool for a few hours to reach 70 degrees F.
- When the temperature is reached transfer all of the liquid to the fermentation bucket, add yeast, close the lid, and put airlock in place.
- Allow the mash to ferment completely until no visible activity in the airlock (10-14 days).
- Transfer the wash into the still’s pot using a siphon tube, leaving any sediment in the fermenter.
- Perform an ordinary distilling run, managing the cuts as you would normally do.
- Cut down the distillate (if desired), depending on the final proof of your run.
It? ‘s recommended to perform an iodine test after the mash to make sure all starches have been converted to sugar.
The corn whiskey is good for consumption right after it has been distilled, chilled, and cut down (if the proof is too high). But you can also mature it in a cask for added flavor. See our guide to whiskey kits here to learn how!
