Moonshine University at Distilled Spirits Epicenter will offer a full day Moonshine Enthusiast Workshop that will explore the infamous spirit, from its history in the hills to its modern, legal incarnation. The hands-on workshop includes a cooking and fermentation demonstration, participation in the distilling process and a sensory evaluation.
Throughout the day, attendees will learn about key terms used in making moonshine; the different types of stills; and the production process. Participants will not only enjoy a lesson on the history of moonshine culture, but also will get hands-on experience in the cooking/fermentation and distillation processes in the Grease Monkey Distillery.
The nuances of corn shine, sugar shine and mixed grain liquors will be revealed through a sensory evaluation, and participants also will learn the difference between wild fermentation and pitched fermentation.
