I think that was my problem I was losing too much good stuff. Oh we'll live and learn.

I made a gallon of pretty high gravity cyser (OG 1.014; FG 1.01; ABV est. 17%) and threw it in the freezer last night.

This morning (about 12 hrs later) there are no signs of freezing... not even ice crystals on the edges.

I don't know what my freezer temperature is but I'm thinking not terribly far below freezing. I had no trouble freeze concentrating the 12% cider before. think i need some dry ice?

I would think that if it was at 17% it is going to be hard to freeze at any temp.

Here ya go. I found this little gem. It looks like getting up to 30% ABV frozen is fairly easy. Somewhere around 35-40% ABV is gonna take a colder than normal freezer.

I guess my freezer doesn't even go down to normal freezer temps, then. The damn cyser is still liquid. Argh! I'm going to find a friend with a deep freezer.

I guess it has too much alcohol in it to jack...
