BTW I've been totally spooked about freeze concentration because of the naughty alcohols that concentrate and f**k with your head. I was gonna make old-fashioned apple jack but not at the expense of 12 painful hrs the following day!
I had a Rochfort 12 that had me still feeling strange the next day. I wondered if it is because Belgians typically don't control the temps as much creating more of the 'bad stuff'. No way I would want to concentrate something like that. I'd tend more towards a lager.
The local HBS here says he has seen an influx of customers since the Moonshiner episode started to run. He's afraid one of them is going to blow themselves up.
