All bottled now and the first concentrated batch is noticeably darker than the other lot.

Dying to try it now [smile]

ive wanted to try freeze distilation for ages..   theres a video on youtube of a big scottish fella making apple liquer ( apple jack) from turbo cider that looks really good.






at the end of the second video theres an interesting visit to brewdog

id did this a few month ago to a batch of mild id brewed. new fridge and i had not realized it was turned right up. anyway when i went to keg the beer if was froze solid!
took 3 days to defrost in the house then i put it in the corny keg and force carbed it some what. few weeks later and i was drinking it. was spot on and no ill effect from freezing.
only problem i see with bottling is it may take and age to carb up and that is if it does carb.  the yeast would have being stunned and dropped out of suspension.

No carbonation problems here, I've got some from both batches in plastic bottles and they're both rock hard already.

I'd imagine that the concentration you got was in the region of 10%, so you've probably only pushed your 7% beer to close on 8% - still well within the realms of carbonation.  Amazing how resiliant out little yeasties are to come back from being near frozen tho lol
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]
