I used an ale pail since I have a deep freezer. I left it in overnight and the next day scooped out the slush and let it filter through a strained funnel.

So this is to extract the pure alcohol out of the cider right?

No, it will never be pure alcohol from freezing. Getting much above 20% takes a cold freezer and some patience. You will also get lots of your original flavor coming with it.

This^^

You will end up with something pretty high octane but it is also very full flavored.

Not sure what I'm starting with. I didn't keep good records this year. I added 2 pounds, 5 cups and 5 pounds of sugar to different batches. Can't remember which batch this one is. So 5-9% I guess.

After 24 hours of sub-freezing temps my 5 gal. is now 3-1/3 gal. It's soooo cold it lacks flavor or alcohol taste.

How was the mass that you pulled off? Did you feel you we're losing a lot of cider, or was it pretty much just water?

I put my cider back into an apple juice bottle put the cap on and let it freeze for 24-48 hours(I get lazy sometimes and come back the next day). I take the bottle out of the freeze take the cap off and turn it upside down into my mason jar. I let it sit for about an hour. Once the majority of the color is gone, I stop
