Self-cooling Beer

I'm not sure how I got this, but here goes...

 

 

A company called Tempra Technology has developed a special beer can with a twistable base that cools a beer can down to 30? Fahrenheit in a mere 3 minutes with the help of an evaporator, a vacuum, and a heat sink. They claim the entire system is nontoxic and won't affect the beer itself other than cooling it off. Although the cans are about the same physical size as 16-ounce cans, they actually hold only 10.5 ounces of beer. It's doubtful if these fridge cans would be able to do anything about "skunked" beer (beer shipped cold that's allowed to warm up), but if the beer is shipped warm they could provide a convenient way of cooling your brew down without needing to lug a cooler around. Undoubtedly, you'll have to pony up a much larger deposit for these cans than the regular aluminum ones, but that's the price you pay for living in an age your grandfather could only dream of ? the age where a cold one provides its own refrigeration. Look for Miller to start using the cans sometime next year.

I have a refrigerator full of self-cooling beer cans.

 

Step 1. Put beer in fridge

 

Step 2. Witchcraft happens

 

Step 3. Beer is cold

 

Unbelievable, huh? :P

 

Besides, any connisee..... conasseer..... connyser.... lover of beer knows that an esky containing cold water, ice and salt cools a hot beer in about 4 minutes.

Fascinating concept, eh Shamus? Put beer in frig, beer becomes cold, drink beer. WOW!

 

I hate to say this about my own country :blush: , but this idea is the epitome of everything that's wrong with America. We're no so bloody lazy we can't be bothered to put our suds in the fridge. We just want to open the can and, presto, have cold beer instantly. No need to move ass from couch for any longer than necessary!

So you lose a third of the contents of the can !!! :o No thanks....

 

 

Which, I suspect is the real motivation behind this.

 

I can just imagine the "concept" meeting...

 

 

"We don't need to sell [/i]more[/i] beer, if we could cut the volume per can down by a fourth or a third we can increase per unit sales and drive up per unit profit greatly!"

 

"Holy Lord CEO, I have a proposal on my desk, your Majesty. I think it's the answer to our probablem."

 

"Speak, peon."

 

"This wanker has an idea of how to make a self-cooling beer can--"

 

"Who gives a shit about that?"

 

"No sir, for it to work, we have to reduce the amount of beer by a third. My calculations show that even with the extra cost for the cans, net profit per unit increases by 5.3019%!"

 

"Excellent, peon, serf, do you have a name? You're not the chauffer or the 18 yr old Romanian maid, so what's your name again?"

 

"Perkins? Nice to meet you."

 

"But I've worked here for eight yea--"

 

"Never mind that! Get this idea going! My bonus will jump by millions! Oh and you'll get a $1 an hour raise and a extra day of vacation when you hit twenty years. Of course, we'll have canned your ass long before that. God, I kill myself. Okay out, Jones, whatever your name is. The Romanian maid'll be here any moment. Make sure no one distrubs me for TWO minutes..."

I never heard of either an "esky" or "chilly bin." I looked it up and, apparently, you all are referring to what we Americans call a cooler, plain and simple. All along I thought you guys were talking about some new "miracle" gadget that keeps your beer cold! :lol:

Connie Sewer. She was a foul mouth porn star from the early 1990's.

 

Connie Suer. She was a rabid prosecuting attorney who successfully nailed Connie Sewer. First in real life for evasion of taxes and then in a bizarre twist in her one turn as a porn actress doing Connie Sewer in a film.

 

 

=))
