I just got done brewing my black lager and wanted to try something new. Something i saw on YouTube.
-As i was bottling my beer i filled a sanitized 1/2 gallon milk jug about 2/3rds full with my beer.
-Froze the jug in my deepfreeze overnight.
-in the morning it was frozen like a slushy, or icee almost.
-as you know the alcohol doesn't freeze so all that is dripping is pretty much pure booze.
-i tipped it on end and filtered it into an old sanitized whiskey bottle.
-after about an hour it slowed to a small drip so i stopped.
The taste is pretty phenomenal. I didn't measure the gravity but it
tastes like a spirit. I will now be doing this for every beer i make.
Does anyone have any experience with this as well or any advice?
This is how Brewdog of Scotland makes the tactical nuclear penguin and Sink the Bismarck.
There is a thread about trying to make a 40% ABV beer using the same process but the guy didn't start with a lager. He used a much higher ABV beer to get started.
I wish I had a larger freezer because I really want to try this.
I made a 35% iced double imperial stout a little while ago. Here is the thread if you want to check it out: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/bi-polar-bear-30-abv-367718/
