    If you're going to chill, you might as well buy chilled. If you're looking for thick fog (the point of chilling is not thick. It's to hug the ground.) then go with swamp juice. But, if you've already got swamp juice....it will work for chilling. Just not as spectacularly as freezing fog. Again....assuming you have no wind in your scene. Wind changes everything.

    Im trying Froggy's Freezin Fog this year. I did a quick comparison between some low lying fog juice my brother loaned me for use in his built in ground fogger, and the freezin fog. Wow, what a difference! The freezin fog was "MUCH" thicker, and hung around longer. This was tested right out of the machine, no chiller. So I recommend Froggy's.

    Thanks all for the input. I'll probably be purchasing some Freezin fog and see how it goes.

    I make my own with that stuff "gyclerol "I bought at walmart you mix it with five parts of water. And with a fog chiller which is a ice chest with a dryer hose running thru it with ice in it. Or if u have a deep fryer set at 200 degrees with water and dry ice work well also.

    Question with the home made stuff.. how safe is it for kids to be breathing in? I know the froggy's is touted as all organic, thus safe... is there any concern with allergies, or anything else when making your own juice?

    As for the recipe, is there any way to make better low lying "freezing" juice? I am curious what it is about froggy's that they can make so much more lay around and be thicker just within formula. I am sure it's some trade secret and we'll never know, but wondering if there is anything anyone has done when making their own juice to help make it freeze better.

    I nevered tried froggys but now u have me wanting to try it just to see whats the fuss about. The homemade stuff never affected my kids. I actually forgot the exact mix ratio your supposed to have. But who makes froggys?

    I just ordered a gallon of the froggy freezin juice for $30 shipped off of ebay. I was going to buy the 2.5 gallon, but last year I opened up my froggy's leftover from the year before and it had mold in it. I was afraid if I bought a full 2.5 gallon and didn't use it all, which I am pretty sure I wont, it will be wasted by the following year. I think a gallon in the v960 set at 40% or so ratio output should last for the 3 or 4 hours I am going to run it on the big night. I also still have a gallon of the black label which I don't think is nearly as good, but we'll see.

    I am curious now too, what the big fuss is. I'll try both in my "cheap" fogger as well as the v960 and see which is thicker, lasts longer, etc.

    Recently, I was testing out my GOE style vortex enclosed in the garage. I at first used the fog juice that came with the foggers. With the cheap fog, I had to continually have the machines spraying the fog as soon as they were ready to keep the effect going. Then I switched to my leftover freezing fog and I had to eventually turn off the machines because the fog was getting so thick that the effect started to not look right. Though when the setup was outside, the cheap fog had trouble keeping up the effect. The freezing fog looked fantastic on full blast.

    Btw, this was with two of the cheap $20 target fog machines.

    Froggys Freezing fog juice is around $30 + about $10 shipping. I'm on sick leave right now and need to cut costs. Also, I may not have time to order.

    Does anyone know anything about American DJ - American Fog Juice? I can get it at our local Best buy for $29.99, and I may have enough Reward Zone points for a discount. Is this anything close to Froggys?

    Also, how does this brand compare to the cheaper stuff I can get at Wal Mart, Spirit Halloween, etc?
