here is my recipe for ginger moonshine. Tara love it she thinks its my best shine. It takes about 3 weeks total

4″ piece of ginger
4 cups 190 proof grain alcohol (everclear)
4 cups water
5 cups sugar

peel and slice the ginger thinly
place in a sealable jar with the everclear
wait 2 weeks
strain out the ginger and return the everclear to the jar

in a saucepan bring the water to a boil
stir in the sugar until dissolved
let cool
add 4 cups of the sugar syrup to the alcohol

Tara loves it mixed with everclear or just over ice. This packs a powerfull kick even though it doesnt taste like it. Its about 90 proof
