This recipe doesn't depend on complex ingredients to break down starch chains into sugars. This recipe is super simple.

It only takes two ingredients (not including the sugar and yeast) and you’ll have the smoothest whiskey run you’ve ever had. Hint: Sweet feed is the secret weapon.

In this article, I give you my top beginner recipe for making the best mash along with easy to follow step-by-step instructions on how to make moonshine, along with some product recommendations.

Check out my podcast about how to make moonshine from the start to finish, along with selling tips!

The mash is the most important factor when talking about the flavor of the whiskey. For example, let’s say you make a whiskey run that turns out to be 110 proof. This means that it’s 55% alcohol. So the other 45% is the water that came from the mash.

Therefore, the mash affects the final product in a huge way.

This recipe will make 30 gallons of mash by total volume including the grains.

    Moonshine Mashing Equipment

    Making corn whiskey mash is pretty simple. You could get by with less, but having the following basic equipment will make this a lot easier.

    • You'll want a large pot for mashing
    • a wort chiller for cooling liquid
    • a brewers thermometer
    • cheesecloth
    • a plastic funnel
    • a spare plastic bucket for aeration

    Moonshine Distilling Proceedure

    • Gather Your Materials and Moonshine Ingredients
    • Mix Your Chosen Type of Mash
    • Ferment Your Mash
    • Prepare Your Still
    • Transfer Fermented Mash to Your Still
    • Run Your Still
    • Separate Foreshots, Heads, Hearts, and Tails
      • Foreshots are the first vapors to boil off during distillation
      • Heads come off the still directly after the foreshots, they taste and smell bad
      • Hearts come off the still after the heads, they are the sweet spot, the good stuff
      • Tails following the hearts after lower boiling point alcohols have evaporated. Tails contain fusel oil and other alcohols
        • Fusel oil is a mixture of several alcohols (chiefly amyl alcohol) produced as a byproduct of alcoholic fermentation
    • Clean Your Still, it’s important for safety and purity of products that copper stills be cleaned properly. An important vinegar run should be done before the first use. You should disassemble your still for cleaning after every use. You want to make sure no buildup collects that could contaminate your alcohol.

    The practice of distilling can include the production of liquor, wine, beer, liqueurs, alcoholic beverages, and yes, even ethanol.

    How to Make Moonshine

    Moonshine (or corn whiskey) is a drink that has deep roots in history, especially American history, so it only makes sense why people would and should know how to know how to make their own moonshine.  If you are unsure as to what moonshine is exactly please feel free to read this page  where you can learn some basic background and information about moonshine.

    Often times when people think about homemade alcohol the term “moonshine” jumps into their heads.  Anyone who is getting into homemade alcohol or home distilling/liquor making should know how to properly make this iconic drink.  So without further ado let’s dive into the specifics into making moonshine.

    Step 1: Understanding the Process & Basic Terms

    • Making moonshine involves 3 basic processes:
    • 1) Making the Mash  
    • 2) Fermenting the Mash  
    • 3) Distilling the Mash
    • We will dive into each of these processes separately a little later on but first let’s go over a few quick and basic terms around moonshine:
    • Mash – The substance that is made which is fermented, distilled, and then becomes the moonshine.
    • Still – The piece of equipment in which the mash is distilled in, the mash is boiled and then condensed into liquor in the still.
    • Distillation –  The process that turns the low alcohol mash into high alcohol moonshine, occurs in the still. *To learn more about distillation go to this page.*
    • Fermentation –  The process of making the mash alcoholic by the yeast converting the sugars into alcohol.  This is a naturally occurring process.

    Step 2: The Ingredients & Equipment

    The ingredients to make a moonshine mash can vary greatly, there are TONS of different types and flavors of moonshine, all with varying recipes.  However a constant among all moonshine ingredients is the need for yeast, a nutrient (grain or sugar usually), and water.  Many recipes also involve a malted ingredient such as barley or rye.

    Here you are going to learn how to make a basic corn-based mash which will produce a classic type of moonshine.

    The ingredients you will need are:

    • Corn Meal
    • Sugar
    • Water
    • Yeast (Distillers yeast is recommended)

    You are going to need a still, this is the single most important aspect to making moonshine, or any liquor for that matter.

    If you plan to make several batches of moonshine or other homemade liquor I HIGHLY recommend buying a still, trust me, it will save you a lot of time, effort, heartache, and money.

     It is indeed possible to make a still, however an improperly made still will be ineffective and can be dangerous.  Click here for an article for more information on purchasing vs buying a still.

    In addition to the still there are a few other things you will need:

      1. You’ll need to choose a high-quality grain of alcohol.
      2. You’ll need to add some flavoring, such as honey, fruit, or spices.

      By following these simple steps, you can create a delicious homemade whiskey perfect for sipping on a warm summer night.

      How long does it take to make the moonshine?

      The moonshine will be ready to drink after being fermented for 2-3 weeks. However, if you want a higher-proof moonshine, you can let it age in jars or bottles for a few months.

      What ingredients do I need for this recipe?

      To make this mash, you’ll need 10 lbs of grain (I prefer corn, but you can use rye or wheat), 5 gallons of water, 1 package of yeast, and 1 cup of sugar.

      There are a few things you need to know before we get started. First, this is a 5-gallon moonshine mash recipe, which means it will produce approximately 5 gallons of moonshine. Second, this recipe calls for cornmeal, the most common type of grain used in moonshine production.

      • 10 lbs Cornmeal
      • 5 gallons Water
      • 1 package Yeast
      • 1 cup Sugar
      • Bring the 5 gallons of water to a boil in a large pot.
      • Once the water is boiling, slowly add in the 10lbs of cornmeal while stirring.
      • Once all cornmeal has been added, stir in 1 cup of sugar.
      • Let the mixture boil for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
      • After 30 minutes, remove the pot from heat and let it cool for 15 minutes.
      • Add the package of yeast to the mixture and stir well.
      • Cover the pot with a lid or towel and let it sit for 24 hours in a warm place.

      • Once fermentation is complete, transfer the moonshine to jars or bottles and enjoy!

      Can I store this moonshine recipe?

      However, it is important to note that the longer it is stored, the more the flavor will change. If you want to store your moonshine for more than a few months, we recommend adding a small number of oak chips or spirals to the storage container.

      This will help to keep the flavor consistent over time.

      Moonshine can be enjoyed in many different ways.

      It can be taken straight, or it can be used in cocktails. It can also be poured over ice or mixed with fruit juices or soda. However you choose to drink it, moonshine will give you a good time!

      Tips and tricks for a better moonshine

      First of all, use cornmeal that is as fine as possible. This will make it easier to dissolve in the water.

      1. Use good quality water. If your tap water isn’t great, use bottled water or filtered water.
      2. Boil the cornmeal and water for a full 30 minutes. This will help to break down the cornmeal and make it more fermentable.
      3. Be sure to dissolve the sugar completely before adding the yeast.
      4. Don’t add too much yeast. A package of dry yeast is usually enough for 5 gallons of mash.
      5. Let the mash sit for at least 24 hours before starting fermentation. This will give the yeast a chance to get started.
      6. Keep the fermentation vessel in a warm place. 70-80 degrees is ideal.
      7. Don’t let the mash get too hot during fermentation. If it gets over 80 degrees, the yeast will die off.
      8. After fermentation is complete, transfer the moonshine to a clean vessel for storage. This will help to prevent it from getting too strong.
      9. If you want to age your moonshine, do so in a glass or stainless steel container. Oak barrels are also an option, but be sure to use a small one (1 or 2 gallons) so that the surface area of the moonshine to wood ratio is high. This will help to speed up the aging process.
      10. Check your moonshine periodically while it’s aging. If it starts to get too strong, dilute it with water.
      11. Don’t forget to taste your moonshine regularly! This is the best way to know when it’s ready to bottle.
      12. When bottling, filter the moonshine through a coffee filter or cheesecloth to remove any sediment.

      Store your moonshine in a cool, dark place and enjoy your moonshine responsibly!
