- Nov 1, 2013In an experiment, I tried freeze distillation. I was able to increase abv to 10%, but checking waste ice revealed that I was tossing 3% abv down my drain. Needless to say freeze distillation is a wasteful and bad idea, and it should not be recommended. If you want to do something different, go out a purchase a dehydrator. Place a 2 gal pot inside with a hose running out a hole in the side. My dehydrator will reach temperatures of 145 F, and it has a 12 hr timer. I have not tested this with my new dehydrator because its under warrantee. That brewhaus economy still work under the same principle. Just a different idea than Freeze Distillation because a dehydrator should produce 40% abv on the first run. There are some dehydrators that reach 160 F.

Eisbock, a Bavarian specialty uses freezing to produce a 10%abv beer -After primary fermentation the beer is frozen for 2 weeks.The ice is removed thus concentrating the alcohol. The beer is then krausened (active fermenting malt is added) to start a strong second fermentation.wal
