I had to take the Apfelwein keg out of the fridge for the Super bowl - mostly beer guys. I accidentally left it outside overnight in -5 temps. Frozen SOLID this morning!

Hope it thaws out ok, I still have a decent amount left in there.

...and yes, I know I'm an idiot

Alcoholic apple slushies might not be all that bad an idea. Give the ladies an ice cream scoop and tell them to have fun!

the stuff that didn't freeze is alcohol, probably twice the strength as the wine. You just distilled Apfelwein brandy!

Freezing is not distilling.
I would give his Ice Apfelwein a try though!

Don't forget to pressure check the keg.

Ya, that concerns me a little, but there was plenty of head room so I'm hoping it's all good
