However, the proper distillation of wine into brandy removes some of the deadly methyl alcohol while fractional freezing concentrates it.

Yes my maddog has partially frozen before and of course I drank the remaining liquid. Tasted like brandy with rabies.

Well Sarg, for liquor to be sold in NC, it has to first be taxed. And that’s a bit of a problem with most of the beverages that were brought up in this thread.

Fwiw, unless the laws have changed again, any liquor above 151 proof can no longer be sold in NC.... Everclear had to proof down their product so they could continue selling in NC. I imagine 151 was the magic number thanks to Bacardi's well-established product

The writing is near creek banks or near small branch banks now. Yet some still lye under ground. Pictures would be as good as writing even as stills have almost eroded away. Well those Charlie F Blew up anyway. Funny, we'd use unused fuse lines for clothes lines. They worked good, didn't leave no stain on clothing nor sagging. May have some still laying around in shed or some where. LOL...

GW, I didn't read through this whole thread but did you ever find anyone to do the writing?

re: winter wine

I'm sure that would raise the alcohol concentration as you would be removing water from the mixture, thus concentrating it. But how much, who knows. Depending on the original concentration, it might freeze at a lower temperature than 32 also. And It's also possible that evaporation rates will increase as EtOH has a lower volitility than water, so keep it corked ;)

I do have to admit, my grandpa's moonshine jars always smelled like diesel exhaust, and I kinda miss that smell

You missed the part where they said “some” and “can”. You implied that it’s common in all moonshine. Typical liberal to spin and try to mislead.

Vehicle Radiators not good for a condenser. Yet dey work, but like said not good for consumption in the long haul....

Nothing new there only idiots use lead solder or old car radiators. But as my grandpa told a neighbor with a bad hangover (son it wasn't the quality of the likker it was the quantity)

Know it is not. Once again, you are wrong. That’s only a problem if not distilled properly.

As young adult my parents would put fruit in a old ceramic canister on top of hot water heater in cold months which was enclosed in small area & it would work off well. Yet you could smell it as soon as you walked in. Guess you could call it Winter Wine? Some frozen & some Never frozen fruit. Yet after strained and worked off again it had the "KICK"...

Well, of course no one would actually DO it, this thread is strictly for educational purposes
