    Has this ever happened to anyone else here, I put two bottles of lager in the freezer to get them cold a bit quick, but left them longer than I normally would, I opened the freezer and found one completely frozen and the other still liquid, so I took them both out, opened the liquid one and it instantly froze, spooky.

    Ah that'll do with the amount of pressure inside the can. So the one can didn't quite have the same amount of pressure inside as the other one did, so it froze.

    The other one didn't freeze due to the pressure inside but once you released the pressure it froze.

    Slushy beer my favourite,if it's any consolation when I do this and forget the bottle burst. :Frown:

    Not to mention second degree burns on my ears from Helen and hours of cleaning the freezer :Nuts:

    If I recall A Level Physics correctly this is known as Adiabatic Cooling. Opening the bottle caused a decrease in pressure allowing expansion and an increase in volume causing a decrease in temperature.

    The same process occurs in reverse in a diesel engine and also this is why the hose on a foot pump gets warm when you blow your tyres up.

    Spot the engineer! :lol:
