Your friends just came over and you have a six pack stashed in your pantry but it's not cold. What are you going to do?
No worries! Grab a couple of household items and in less than 5 minutes your beer will be ice cold.
Drill with 3/32" Drill Bit
Bottle of Compressed Air without Bitterant- see warning on bottle
Adapted from Popular Science Big Book of Hacks
Drill a small hole into the side of your container using a 3 /32 " drill bit. Don't make the hole too big. You just need it wide enough to poke the straw through. Test the straw out to make sure it fits snug in the hole.
***DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP***Next, place your beer into the plastic container and wrap the duct tape around it 5 or 6 times. You don't want the top of the container to fly off when the cold air is injected into the container.
Once the container is taped tightly, put your gloves on and we're ready to chill some beer. Insert the straw into the bottle of compressed air. Turn the bottle upside down and squeeze it for one minute. Don't let the straw touch the beer. The top of the container might pop up a few times, but it won't fly off, because you followed the previous step and taped it tightly.
Cut the tape off the container and remove the cans of beer. Tap on the top of each one to relieve the pressure. Pour into a red cup or glass of your choice and enjoy!
Don't drink the beer directly from the can unless the compressed air you use does not contain a bitterant agent. Companies making bottles of compressed air have started to add a bitterant to deter people from using the product to get high.
