Default Homemade apple pie shine

Got this from another site and tried it, it's awesome.
1/2 gal apple juice
1/2 gal apple cider
1 cup white sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
6 cinnamon sticks
750ml Everclear

Mix all but the Everclear in a pot and heat till it's almost to a boil, to make sure the sugar desolves
Remove from heat and let cool. Add the bottle of Everclear and pour into Qt. jars and you're done.

PS, it's really good mixed with Vanilla ice cream too

Be sure and let the mix cool before adding the Everclear, you stand a chance of losing some of the alcohol content if added when it's hot. And, don't leave any of the cinnamon sticks in the bottled brew, I did to see what it would do, way too much cinnamon after a few days.

do you have to "can the shine" after you put it in the jars? Wondering if they need to be sealed in a traditional canning method to prevent spoilage, it will make about 1 1/2 gallons? will it spoil?

I would guess the Everclear would prevent it spoiling, but would like to know as well.

I didn't, I just poured in the jars and put the top on them. Like posted above, I think the everclear keeps it pickled, LOL. I only have a 750 ml bottle left, I gave the pint jars to friends, and it's been on the counter for about 6 days now.

Be careful with leaving the cinnamon sticks in the brew, if you're going to drink pretty quickly (days), it's fine. If you plan on letting it sit and age or gifting it, take the sticks out after a few days, the cinnamon stick along with the apple juice/cider and sugar will start the fermentation process again. You will get a few hints of methanol, not enough to hurt you, but will def. add to the hangover. And make sure that you jar it back into food grade jars and lids.

I will not disclose where my knowledge of this comes from.

hot dawg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my wife's close friend has a friend that makes apple moonshine for special events (i.e. New year's).

it'll knock you on your keyster and it goes down smooth...too smooth.

I bet this is pretty dang close. Her friend won't give up the recipe, so I gotta try this one!!

If it's as good as the stuff I've had before...I'll be a VERY happy camper!!

Looks like it's gonna be kinda syrup-y.
What's the preferred method of drinking this?
Over ice, room temp from the mason jar, some other way?

Unless the everclear cuts the heck out of it, I think it's gonna be way too sweet to drink more than one shot of.

I prefer it at room temp. I've drank it over ice, but when the ice melts,the water seemed to change the flavor. I just got home from a weekend mardi gras parade/camp out/party and brought a jug of it. Most were serving it with whipped cream and it was really good that way.

I am due for another batch.... just need to get this job behind me so I can have some time to enjoy it.

I have a quart of Lightnin' all ready to go in place of the Everclear.

The last batch is long gone.

New product i found are soap stone cubes. They work well for drinks on the rocks instead of ice.
