In my last post, (Sunbeam pot cooling via ice cubes) a reply wanted to get into whether ice is the same temperature, etc etc. I'm not interested in lectures/debates on physics; just want to get some practical information if there is any to be had and share information if there is any to share."
Do you mean: "If you pick up two different ice cube and measure their temperatures, will they have the same reading"?
The answer is no. The melting point of ice is 0 degrees Celsius(the role pressure plays on freezing is small, compared with vaporization, so we can for the most part ignore it). But ice cubes can take on any temperature below 0 degrees Celsius all the way down to approaching absolute zero (-273.15 degrees Celsius, the theoretically lowest temperature possible in the universe).
Does this address the question?

Does anyone have any experience/proof that this is beneficial or a waste of time? I do know when making wine we use a large CO2 tank to 'top' off the fermenting grapes and that is supposed to be beneficial.
> I do think that when removing the beans, if one pours them, the CO2 will spill out. Maybe I'll put a match in a jar and see if it is extinguished or perhaps a canary.
