Tight-Fisted Auld Git.. what you might call me, but I don't care!

I was looking in the fridge for something to have for lunch...opened the freezer and found...this!!

Yes, a bottle of Augustiner...frozen solid. Amazingly it hadn't cracked - but this is still a potential disaster. At the moment it is thawing in the kitchen and later I will simply have to try and drink it.

This happened to me once before, many many years ago, and the bottle had actually cracked but the beer was still frozen. It took me many hours of creative thinking before I finally was forced to admit that I would have to sling it because the danger of swallowing glass splinters was too great even if I poured the thawed out beer through a fine sieve...

It still rankles that I had to throw it away.

Even my 18 year old knows you don't forget beer in the freezer. Was it any good?

Try it with the oven.
300 degrees and the result is phenomenal ;-)

Sorry Anji. Anyhow I haven't tried it yet.

Hi antiferengi...I really intend to update those pages soon.
