    Well we will have to agree to disagree on the reason it is illegal, you say health risks and I say Feds want their $$$ which is addressed in that article. Reguardless lets get back to the intent of thread, making cider any recipes or stories of how you did it?

    I think it comes back to a 50/50 thing. Yes, it is dangerous if you screw it up. Yes, the government is loosing a butt load of taxes on illegal booze. Don't forget though that home brew beer was also illegal initially after the repel of prohibition until 1978 when Carter signed the bill to legalize home brew beer again.

    Second - the process of taking a cider, freezing the beer, and then removing the alcohol is considered a "concentrate" not a "distilled" liquor.

    I understand that California is used to making their own set of laws; but for the rest of the country "ice beer", "hard cider", or "ice wine" is completely legal.


    Source: ATF Ruling 94-3

    Source: TITLE 27--ALCOHOL, TOBACCO PRODUCTS AND FIREARMS; CHAPTER I--BUREAU OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCO AND FIREARMS, DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY; PART 25--BEER


    Shall I continue or does this put this one to rest? Each state has the legal right to restrict home brew operations; but as far is the Federal law is concerned concentrate is NOT distilling and IS legal.

    Lead poisoning was another concern... it was from using car radiators as condensors.

    I haven't seen any up here yet. The Junior Johnson site just says to bring it up to your local liquor store so they can get it ordered. I would like to try it but I just want to try and make some cider first

    You'll probably have to strike a deal with a local orchard. I haven't been able to find unpasturized cider in a long, long time. Or, make your own.

    Troy and Sons is better. :cool:

    but that's not "shine". that's all 80 proof. though i think junior johnsons stuff might be pushing 90. it's the same alcohol content of jack daniels and the like.

    Here ya go. A quick Apple Pie moon shine recipe makes close to two gallons http://www.azestybite.com/2012/03/apple-pie-moonshine.html

    Ps. Add 4 shots of everclear for mild kick per 16oz jar, or more to your liking. let it sit a week with apples and cininamon sticks in it. Its delicious, even got a friend who drinks shine all the time to not be able to tell.
