The vinegar can also be distilled and when the water is down to a small enough amount, the heat can be turned off and the zinc acetate will crystallize the remaining water. Alchemists called this effect "ice" since it appears like frozen water. The zinc acetate would normally be clear if clean pure zinc is used, but in this photo it is colored because the pennies were dirty.

After distilling off the water and phlegm, the zinc acetate begins to release a fog which gently rolls over into the receiver flask and then condenses like morning dew into a golden liquid.

This photo shows the golden oil drops forming in the condenser. But a condenser is not even required; a distillation flask attached to a receiver flask directly by an arm will still form the golden oil. An air space can be left between the receiver flask and the connecting arm and a wet cloth wrapped around it to absorb any fumes that might try and escape.
