Freeze concentration experiment
1 Attachment(s)

I froze 1/2 gallon of my mulled/spiced cider. Prefrozen it was a bit on the spicy side.
Postfrozen it is really spicy. I am going to let it age for awhile see what happens.

The quart jar was obviously the first qt thawed and the 1/2 gal jar was the second.

I made a great batch this year. Attachment 181821

1 pound of turbinado, 1 pound if brown, 5.5 gallons in a 6 gallon primary. Secondary until clear (1month) transfer to a 5 gallon plastic Carboy and drop in the deep freeze. My deep freeze gets to -25. Two days there, remove and invert over a 5 gallon pail until most of the color is out. You end up with about 1 gallon. About 50 proof. Drop in a tube of apple juice concentrate. Mix well, bottle. Drop a cinnamon stick in each one. Smooth as silk!
