Moonshine Making Reset Bug in Red Dead Online – What to Do?

The moonshine resetting bug in Red Dead Online has been plaguing people all across the world. What happens is, the moonshine timer just resets itself just as it’s about to finish. This is a huge problem, because the timers for making moonshine range between half an hour to an hour, in real time. You might be thinking that you did something wrong, like forgetting to check up on it, but no. As it turns out, it’s a bug, and you’re absolutely not the only one having to deal with it. Needless to say, it’s not exactly doing much to entice people to play as moonshiners.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any real fix for this glitch. You can try and exit the game and go back in. It’s not at all guaranteed to work, but it won’t hurt you to try. Other than that, the only thing you can do is wait for some kind of hotfix. I’m sure that Rockstar isn’t just going to let a problem like this slide, and that it’s just going to be temporary teething problems of the new update. Otherwise, not many players are going to adopt the new role.

    Happened twice to me today. 2nd time it even “broke” my stiller: I can’t make any mash and though I should have batch completed, it says I got 0/20. So I can’t make any deliveries either..

      This has happened to me too I’m stuck there’s nothing I can do to make more or sell what I was producing did you find a way to fix this bug or am I stuck with it till the next update?

      Yeah same here. This French guy making never ending batches, is a bigger c**t than Cripps, packing up your camp every half hour… Fix this shite…

      I pay $30 for this role and it doesn’t even work properly

    It didn’t give me an option to buy a place. Cripps letter still appears unused, but going back to the saloon does nothing. Restarted everything. still nothing.

  3. T

    Had the ready then 0/20 reading on moonshine but it did let me do the delivery for $72 then could restart it but it is continueally crashing so finding it very frustrating

    Hope they patch this fast moonshine dlc doesn’t work more than it works very broken. Expect to lose money and mats on game crashes and infinite load screens

  5. E

    Closing app doesn’t work. Removes the bug that keeps you from making more or selling but also completely resets the system so you lose what you spent on mash and you lose the ingredients you used to flavor it without having anything to sell.

    I have the same problem after the ‘Master Distiller’ award. One workaound that works for me is to remain within the moonshack when the timer expiries.

  7. J

    Happened to me twice just now, still not fixed it I’m guessing

  8. C

    This moonshine intermittenty resetting glitch has been happening to me every since I’ve upgraded my stil to average moonshine about a week ago. I just got the elusive creek plum and lost a batch of wild creek moonshine.
    Now when I’m back in the moonshine menu, it’s already purchased as the weak mash instead of the average I was brewing. First world problems!!!
