1 gallon tart apple cider
1 gallon apple juice
1 lb. brown sugar
1 lb. sugar in the raw
1 tsp. apple pie spice
1 tsp. allspice
2 oz. cinnamon sticks
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3.25 liters everclear

Bring everything except the alcohol to a rolling boil and let it cool to below 150° freedom units before adding the everclear or it just boils off and you're stuck with non-alcoholic apple pie shine:flipoff2:

This one is in the 65-70 proof range but you can barely taste the alcohol. Warm it up and enjoy on a cold fall day.

IIRC you need to heat everything sans everclear up to dissolve the sugar?
 
Thanks for reminding me about the pie. I just cracked the seal on some I made in 2015 with the 190 proof everclear. Talk about smooth.

This is almost exactly how I've made mine (other than the tart apple cider). Does the tart A.C. make much of a difference? May have to give it a whirl, I just hate to fix something that isn't broke!

I do the same except rather than vanilla extract I us a fifth of Dr McGillicuddy's liquor.

I think it makes it really pop. If I can't find the tart cider I sub in some lemon juice instead.
