How to reduce volume while retaining alcohol.

  1. Dec 19, 2013 #1
    Hi
    I'm new but I figured, this is a good place to start.
    Suppose I had a bottle of beer, and I wanted to somehow make that bottle of beer a little more easy to transport. Is there a way of getting the water out while retaining the alcohol so that upon adding good clean water back into a much smaller bottle of beer, I get back a beer? Don't worry about the carbonation. :)
    Just toying about with the idea.
    Best

    You may be able to concentrate the beer via fractional freezing. I should note that, like distilation, concentrating alcohol via fractional freezing is illegal without a permit in many locations.
