  • -25 here in Madison with a windchill of anywhere from -30 to -60!

    EVERYTHING is shut down, even Madison bars. You know it's cold when bars are closing!


    Too bad hospitals can't close..... :angry: (Just kidding, but really it is kind of a pain to see Joe-schmo being able to sit home with a cup of Joe during the day while healthcare providers / emergency services have to go freeze our asses off - but that's what we signed up for).

                    Ugh, I can't even look at it! The horror!



                    (But that's what's so awesome about beer. Many 'flavors' for many different folks and their own indivdualized preference!)

                          Well you can strip down to just one parka now that the polar vortex is moving on. But your comment made me curious about the freezing point of alcohol so I looked it up. Here's some interesting data:

                          Water freezes at 0 C (32 F) and the freezing point of pure ethanol alcohol is -114 C (-173.2 F). Alcoholic beverages are a mixture of both alcohol and water (in some cases, sugars and other additives as well) so the freezing point of your alcoholic beverages is somewhere in between.

                          The Freezing Temperatures of Alcohol

                          Type ABV Freezing Point Notes and Examples

                          Beer 3-10% -2 C (28 F) Not recommended for the freezer beyond a quick chill.
                          Wine 8-14% -5 C (23 F) More than an hour or two in the freezer and your are putting the wine at risk.
                          40 Proof Liquor 20% -7 C (22 F) Includes many low-proof liqueurs like Irish cream. If left in a really cold freezer too long, these may get slushy, but this is rare.
                          64 Proof Liquor 32% -23 C (-10 F) A liqueur like amaretto and a flavored whiskey like Fireball would fall in this range. These should be okay in the freezer.
                          80 Proof Liquor 40% -27 C (-17 F) Includes most standard base liquors like gin, vodka, whiskey, etc. You're clear for the freezer!

                            I lived in Russia for some time when I was younger. A buddy of mine used to swear by using cheap vodka for windshield wiper fluid. It was less expensive than normal fluids and guaranteed not to freeze unless really cold and if it did he didn't want to drive anyway. Driving with him I was always afraid of getting pulled over and smelling like a cheap bar and having to explain why.
