This document contains instructions for building a low-cost apparatus to measure ice recrystallization and ice recrystallization inhibition. The supplies are commercially-available and total a fraction of the costs of a traditional microscope and cold-stage, thereby allowing more scientists the opportunity to become involved in this research as well as build the apparatus for possible use in chemical education.
