he probably didn't leave anything out, he would have chucked the heads (the first part out of the still) away which has the methanol in it which is the primary cause of hangovers (you still get them from the rest of the alcohol but more so from methanol). due to the large batches the bonded industry make they don't often get to throw them away so they just mix it all in.

I think you mean ethanol. If you drank methanol... you would most definitely die...

Always seemed to me, that it's the sugar stuff that gives the headaches. Not the hootch, by itself.

The ingredients that I believe it was meant to be where:

8 Cups Apple Juice
8 Cups Apple Cider
1 Jar Cinnamon Sticks
1 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup White Sugar
Apples
2 1/2 cups Everclear


I did my batch that way and it came out awesome. I did tweak a couple of things that made the mix taste richer in the apple pie flavor.

Looks good! If you use apple concentrate instead of the apple juice, you dilute the everclear less. I'm also going to put in a couple cups of spiced rum in as well, maybe more brown sugar and no white.

Reading the recipe it mentions white first so I would assume the first measurement is white sugar

Y'all don't get hung up on real or not, legal or not..... distilling your own - unlicensed is illegal period. Mixing your own and selling it is illegal period. Make it, enjoy it with your friends period. Cheers

this isn't moonshine, it's diluted everclear. No moonshine is not illegal to make. It's illegal to sell it without government approval. You can make X amount without any anything.

You might want to double check that. Beer and wine, sure, that's true, but Distilled spirits, requires federal oversight, and a hefty fee, plus collection of taxes, and major headaches.
