Fig Moonshine?

I have been thinking about trying a fig mash.
I think it would make an excellent moonshine,
but I can't recall ever hearing of fig 'shine.
Anybody have any experience in this endevor?
Thanks, Charlie

To make an excellent fig schnapps, there are three possibilities:
1. put the fresh figs in 50%vol tasteless alcohol, after three to four weeks
its ready to drink
2. Take tasteless alcohol with 12-14%vol, put it into the still. Now add the
figs and distill it. Great taste!
3. Mash the figs: you have to smash the fresh figs, add only a small amount
of
water, a little bit sugar and a good yeast:
20 kg figs, 2 litre water, 5 kg sugar, yeast. The fermentation will start
at least after app. 24 hours.

Cheers!

DId you mean to say only 2 litre's of water? that's not even enough to saturate the fruits let alone saturate the yeast. and how much yeast for this? the regular amount for the 45 pounds(20 kg). cause that's gonna be quite a bit.
