How to instantly chill and cool down a soda or a beer can


instant chilling of a beer or pop Adam Savage (MythBuster) who did an awesome mold making article in MAKE 08 chimed in on an Ask Mefi coke cooling question, here’s how to cool down that soda, fast.

1. Put the can in a freezer ( time : 20 -25 minutes )

2. Put the can in a bucket of ice ( time to freeze: 10 – 15 minutes)

3. Put the can in a bucket of ice filled with water ( time to freeze: 4- 6 minutes)

4. Put the can in a bucket of ice. Fill it with water. Pour salt in that water. (Chill time : 1-2 minutes)

5. Put the can in a bucket of ice. Fill it with water. Pour salt in that water. Agitate the can in the water, roll it around, stir the bucket. ( Chill time :< 1 minute)

So there you go…

The fastest possible way is to grab a CO2 fire extinguisher and unload that sucker on the can. However, we would recommend that you don’t do it this way but go through the salt way.

Whatever you do, do NOT bury the can in sand, pour gasoline on the sand and set the sand on fire. That won’t do anything.

  2. Shoot a fire extinguisher up your ass and you will cum in 5 seconds. Faster than a can of warm beer is chilled. You can be the 5 second super chump or a drunk cumming bastard. you choose beeeoootch.

  3. That’s a really good tip, just tried it and it works. Was gasping for a nice ice cold Dr Pepper after a nights drinking, before I went to bed I put 1 can in the fridge ready for the desert storm mouth in the morning. Morning arrives I get up go straight to the fridge open the door to get my nice cold can of Dr Pepper and… what…. where is it? Some robbing so and so has pinched it, arhhhhh! what am i gonna do I’m gonna die, I’ve got cans of Dr Pepper but they are warm, water no no no can’t have water. I know I’ll go on the internet and find out if there is a quicker way of cooling the can. End up here try putting ice in the tub with cold water and the salt malarky, 5 minutes later and hey presto a cold can. Thank you so much for the tip. Chris.

  4. i dont want this i want information on cooling sodas all they have is junk for soda cooling when that is what my science project for 5th grade is on it!
