Wine as a fire extinguisher

Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 7.20.38 AM.pngA pastor said that wine is so evil that it would not put out a fire. Of course, Astrobiology Associates had to test that. This photo is a still from the video on Facebook. We found that a mixture of water even with 23% alcohol would put out a fire, even though it flames up at first. I don’t know of a wine with a higher percentage of alcohol.


Applied to the burning starter log with a plastic pipette, in a fireplace. Only 30 ml was used, and it still put out the fire.
