Moonshine prices

What's the deal with lower moonshine selling price rip off ?

So I used one of the free mash benefit awards to create a moonshine. I chose the Spiced Island Moonshine which was valued at $225. It takes an hour to brew so I went and made a nuisance of myself around Valentine for a while then went back to the shack with 18 bottles out of the 20 made. I hung around the shack cleaning weapons and loading ammo etc to pass the last few minutes and got the notification that the batch was ready. But when I went to sell it the highest price buyer available was only $130 ?!? What the hell happened ? It's happened as well when I legitimately paid for a mash too.

Yes and the prices aren't guaranteed.  Purely anecdotal and likely coincidence, but I have recently moved my shack from Cholla up to Heartlands, just for a change.  Down in Cholla I was routinely getting prices over $200.  In Heartlands I have only ever managed selling to that Bert chap for a meagre $147, so the bottom has rather dropped out of my operation.  It actually matters not a jot to me - I'm like an Old West lottery winner, rich for life from my careers as a Collector and Trader - as I only do moonshining for the xp and the enjoyment.  But given I have paid for all of the upgrades etc as a purely financial concern I can't say that Moonshining makes any sense.  If I needed the money I'd stop moonshining immediately.

I've moved mine down to the Bayou site & prices are $206/$226 & $247 for the buyers - I've started leaving completed brews until the buyers refresh so I don't only get the 1 standby buyer & his low price -  you might have more success down there - plus the roads aren't quite as hectic so with the "aiming autodrive" I can usually arrive with a decent 18/19 bottles intact :)

Yes the roads are a good shout.  Might try my luck down in 'gator country.  Thanks for the tip.
