Re: cold temperature distilling
Litte confused here. You either evaporate the alcohol from the water
solution using high heat as in a regular still or at lower temps using
something like the amazing still as Geoff mentioned.
On the other extreme, since alcohol freezes at a lower temp then water,
freeze distilling or factional crystalization is the other method to
I still dont understand what you getting at between a warm house and
cold environment. If you run a coil to the cold outside then back
inside, then it will just heat back up with no ice forming which would
block the line up anyways???

inside your house and ran a coil outside during winter. Like -25 C out

for sure, but still...)
