And yet, what you are attempting is not, by definition, distillation.

Look it up. Distillation requires, by definition, heat and evoporation. Otherwise, Eis Bock would be known as something else. Like, I dunno, Bock Gerstewhiskey.

Guy... You have already said you are done with this conversation. I'm not sure if you just have nothing better to do, or just get off on being a pretentious dbag, either way, I'd rather get a response from someone who actually wants to help, not someone intent on discouraging everything this forum is all about.

Thanks

unfortunately, giant dbaggery aside, his main point is correct. it's gonna be mush, and you'll have to figure out a way to separate the mush.

some people use cornies. freezing a corny, the ice forms a kind of jacket on the inside with liquid in the center, and then you can siphon it out. but if you're only doing a gallon or two, you'll have to get creative.

Alright ladies. Quit swiping at each other with your handbags. You're embarrassing yourselves in front of your husbands.

I've got a pretty decent idea I'll try when I get home. I'm going to freeze it into the mush, break it up as best I can, put into a colander over some container, and put back in the freezer. If I continually go and break up the ice without letting it thaw, the alcohol should work its way out.... Hopefully. I'll try it.

Thank you for the input. I assumed he was right... I just have trouble hearing [Mod Edit] It ends here.

It's illegal. You can do it with the right supplies, but it will look like you're cooking dope lol

You can't get info on hbt about actual distillation I don't think.
