      You at least have me curious about the process. Many times ideas, although not practical in one direction, provoke thought of it's applications in another direction. Don't worry, people thought Edison was crazy too.

      There are several types of alcohol in wash.  We do not just remove ethanol from wash, but we remove almost all of the various forms found in our wash.  Most of the time we take it out, so we can put it back in which is ironic in a way.

      I'm new to distilling so time will tell. Is it true that the final product is better with a slower cook? It would seem on a sunny day that the sun will be fairly constant so the adjustments that I need to make will be minimal. I don't care if it takes 12 hours, it's outside, and I actually have an outdoor shower underneath with drain if there's a mess. The worse that I can see happening is pressure build up with gaskets around some of the tubes leaking, not a big deal for me, just throw a tarp over the tubes to slow it down and bring the pressure down. I wouldn't need to babysit it as much as you would if it were on a stove. I'm hoping I can mostly set it and forget it.

      Removing alcohol from water? I've heard of doing the opposite but what would the scenario be where alcohol got into water and why remove it?
