Hi guys, I'm Ethan Fixell, and this is FWX Beer
Hacks. Question for you. What is worse than coming home
after a long tiring day to nothing but a home
full of warm beer? Yeah, nothing, except for maybe a
zombie apocalypse. Now we all know the towel method, right?
You take the warm beer, you wrap it in some
wet paper towels, pop it in the freezer for 8
to 15 minutes, And boom, you've got a cold beer.
But who has 8 to 15 minutes when you're dying
from thirst? I don't. I could be dead by then.
With a fairly common household tool, you can actually chill
a bottle of warm beer in under 30 seconds. All
you need is a can of compressed air. Canned air
is actually made up of gases that are compressed until
they convert to fluid form. There's a pocket of gas
at the top of the can that lets the gas
come out. But when the can is turned upside down,
the liquid will actually come out of the nozzle before
it has a chance to convert back into a gas.
[NOISE] Gee. When spread out onto another surface, the liquid
will evaporate very quickly thus drawing heat out of it's
surroundings. In other words, this bottle is going to be
cold. But before I do a demonstration some quick disclaimers.
The following demonstration goes against the warnings on this can
so please perform at your own risk. Never pour this
in an unventilated area. Afterwards don't drink the beer directly
from the bottle unless you want to taste a bitter,
bitter chemical. And finally, this method is not environmentally friendly
or financially practical so use it in emergencies only. And
with that said, let's give this a try. [MUSIC] [SOUND]
As you can see frost is forming all over the
bottle. That's cold. Cheers. Oh brain freeze.
