ts true. Distillation is potentially pretty hazardous, both in the propcedure and the product...illegal, too...nothing to be trying at home.
hehe, reminds me of some people I know who forgot to depressurize something while they were making moonshine and it ended up exploding. The windows in the basement were busted out and the walls were quite torn up. They couldn't call insurance either...
From what I've been told, the safest way is to heat the fermented liquid and collect the vapors into copper coils (not copper plated, but entirely copper) to rapidly cool the vapor back into a liquid. However, that requires quite the setup and the freezer method sounds pretty cool.
Oh, and never sell the end product. You could get into some nasty trouble
