Got a batch going right now. Wife has a bunch of Colorado and Dallas family in for the weekend, so I figured I'd give them a little treat. My wife's 15 yr old cousin is helping fix it but she knows she can't have any!

Everybody liked it more while it was still kinda warm. The more it cooled down, the stronger the alcohol flavor.

Mine never has. I have some that I did several months ago and it's the same consistancy.

Mine stays in my liquor cabinet. I prefer drinking mine at room temp. It's good chilled also, but only by the fridge, not with ice, to me it waters it down.

I'm gunna make a batch for a Halloween party this weekend. Haven't made it in a while because once I do I tend to swap out my wine consumption for the shine until it's gone :-)
At least with a large party, I can bank on it all going in 1 night. Cheers!!

I have scaled back the ever clear and went 2/3 alcohol 1/3 water to what it calls for to smooth it out. Now it's a silent killer in a jar.

I actually used alittle more than the recipe called for when i made my Peach shine.At 1st it was like Holy Sheet.Then after letting it sit in the Fridge awhile and adding a1/2 peach to each jar it really mellowed out and is friggin awesome right now.Real smooth and you can easily drink to much and end up in the neighbors yard naked spooning their Pink Flamingo yard decoration.......Don't Ask!!!!!!

I went the other direction. I now add 1500 mL's of the good stuff!! It's more potent and lasts longer.

Time in the fridge definitely helps take the edge off the everclear

I'm giving this a go. If I can figure out a good ratio for my taste I'll be gifting this for christmas. In the cooling stage right now. On this first batch I backed down the sugar just a tad because I've heard some people (not on this site) complain about the sweetness and I'm not a fan of sweet alcohol either. Can't wait.

Has anyone tried this recipe but with light brown sugar instead of the dark? I bought some to try after I finish with this batch.

I use 1 1/2 cups of light brown sugar and no white. Actually thinking about cutting it back to 1 cup too. That apple juice has a ton of sugar already in it.

I've got 9 pints jarred. It was a bit strong out of the pot so going to let sit till totally room temperature. Smells great though. I think if the fiance thinks it's too strong I'm going to try cutting with distilled water.

Before you cut it with water just let it sit a couple days and refrigerate it.It will tone down alittle.If still to strong then cut it with Apple Cider or Juice.

Thanks haztech3, I put one jar in the fridge to see how cold will taste last night. I'll let it sit and try it Wednesday or Thursday. Probably going to keep sipping on the other one tonight lol. They are still drinkable just not as smooth as I'd like.
