Have you ever come home from the shops for a night of TV watching and suddenly discovered that your beer is warm and you'll have to wait 30 minutes for it to cool down in the freezer? You'll also probably forget about half of the bottles you put in the freezer and discover them half exploded tomorrow. Luckily folks we have a solution that will cool beer down for to a super cold temperature in less than 5 minutes. Trust us this is beyond whopper!


Step 1

First step is to get the biggest container you can find. Lash a load of ice in. A bucket or a saucepan work best.

Step 2

Lash in some water. We know with the water charges this is drastically going to increase the price of the few beers, but feck it.
