moonshine extracts

moonshine extracts
These are attempts at making both cinnamon and vanilla extracts using moonshine.

One of the ways we can flavor our home brewed hard cider is by adding as a finish about 1/4 teaspoon of natural extracts per gallon.

Extracts are about 40% alcohol (80 proof), and I wish I knew why. Maybe it has something to do with it being a solvent for suspended oils. I don’t know.

I saw this recipe online today for making your own cinnamon extract using rum and cinnamon sticks. Another used vanilla beans and vokda to make vanilla extract.

All I have is moonshine, so I’m giving that a try. Pictured: a huge stick of cinnamon and then two nice vanilla beans cut down the middle – both submerged in 80 proof moonshine.

If it works out in a month, we may use some of it to finish a small batch of hard cider. We’re trying to get an apple pie flavor, but can’t find how to make an apple extract.
