Alcohol evaporates at 173 degrees so before you add your alcohol or when reheating for later consumption, keep it below 173. This recipe needs a clove, some vanilla, and a LOT more liquor in it. A liter of grain alcohol is 3.74 gallons at 90% alcohol. For ease of math, let's call it 1/4th a gallon at 100%. Two gallons of apple liquid is 8/4th, so 9 parts toal with 1 part alcohol is 11% or 22 proof. This recipe needs to double the grain alcohol to get it to 20% or 40 proof, (add a stick of cinnamon to each jar and let it set for a few weeks to simmer the taste), or add a bottle of bottle of 100 proof Vanilla Vodka to get it to 30 proof.
