Making Corn Moonshine the TN WAY

by TN MOONSHINER
(tn)

Hey everybody i been cooking moonshine for about three or four years the peach recipe is great but i always add some sugar and a packet of yeast let sit for 5-7 days then distill.

But the corn moonshine is by far my favorite . Here is what i do. I pick my own corn hand shuck and strip it. You let it cure. Take ya a burlap sack fill it with corn this is called priming your corn. i take it down to the creek bed and let it soak then i sit it under some leaves this lets the corn sprout adding a lil water everyday when your corn reaches 1/4 in. long spouts.

rub your sprouts off in water, crush your corn, i have a hammer mill i use but a heavy pole will work too. cook it bout 155 degrees for bout an half hour add your lb. of sugar. let cool to bout room temp and add your yeast let sit 7-10 days and you're ready to DISTILL

Idiots. For those of you asking how much water. He says 50 lbs of sugar. A lb for each gallon of water. 50lbs of sugar = 50 gal of water. If you couldn't figure that out, maybe you ought not make it!

What still do you use?
by: Victor

I really like the way you use to germinate the corn, what is it for? I know it's done with barley and wheat to malt it.

What still do you use?

moonshine and yeast
by: Anonymous

By looking at those recipe we see on this page, (Popcorn's) and the TN way, both recipe are pretty similar exept for one of them has the yeast?

Why does one recipe use yeast when Popcorn Sutton doesn't? I believe popcor'n will come out ready as fast as the one with the yeast, why ?? In other words, why add yeast when you don't really need it ?? Thank you :)

How much water to mash?
by: Anonymous

It's really self explanatory. The moon shine recipe for Popcorn's shine or likker as he calls it, says one pound sugar per gallon and the recipe is for 50 gallons.

If you only want 25 gallons then after you put all the ingredients in all but water, add to your liking, around 25 gallons - give or take!

Here is Moonshine Popcorn Sutton Way
by: Anonymous

Sutton's recipe from his book:

25 pounds coarse ground white corn meal, enough to fill half of your barrel/container
50 pounds of sugar - 1 pound of sugar per gallon of water of total volume
1 gallon of malt - can be corn, barley, rye or a combination.

Boil the water, cook in the cornmeal and allow to cool to touch. Add sugar and malt and stir in well. Leave for a day and come back. The mix should be bubbling on top, stir one last time and then leave it.

Moonshiners can siphon off the liquor or distill it for higher quality.

I have a moonshine recipe question for you. Did you forget something out in your recipe?

It's about the water. How much water do you put in this mash before you still it?
