Quick question - any harm leaving the wash in the freezer for a week or more?
Guess it doesn’t matter as the alcohol shouldn’t freeze.

At what temp is your freezer?
And what does it do to off flavours in your opinion? Just because I think that is one of the benefits of putting some effort in a good stripping run?

If you are getting a freezer consider an upright rather than a chest. A frozen fv is 25kg...a heavy, slippery and difficult lift out of chest freezer. :?
