Widgetized beers are packaged with liquid nitrogen, and the widget, which contains a small hole. The liquid nitrogen warms, turns to a gas inside the sealed can, which forces gas and beer into the widget through the hole. When the can is opened, the pressure inside drops suddenly, causing the contents of the widget to be shot into the beer, agitating the ...

Well, I never tried such an heresy, but theoretically you will end up with some kind of syrup (or broth, I really don't know the most appropriate word in english for it), thick, and more or less sweet depending on the beer you use. Some beers have more residual sugars than other ones. Alcohol will be the first to evaporate, then water, which is basically ...

I had never heard of this saying (I'm not a native English speaker), but the funny thing is that in Dutch there is a similar saying, except with wine instead of liquor and the other way around: 'wijn na bier is plezier, bier na wijn is venijn'. This roughly translates to 'wine after beer is fun, beer after wine is poison'. I once read an interview with a ...

Cans should be okay in the freezer for a long time, however they will probably dent outward as the water freezes. Bottles will pop the cap since that is the weakest part of the container. All that being said, the quality of the beer may deteriorate from being frozen as the water will separate from the alcohol during freezing and they may not mix evenly ...

The sake was most likely supercooled. It was cooled below its freezing point, but there were no impurities to form ice crystals. When it was poured into a glass, as the author of that video suggests in his comment, it created turbulence that produced ice crystals to form, and once that process starts, accelerates until it is completely frozen. It is a fun ...

I suspect that there is no science behind it and that the saying is something akin to an old wive's tale, something often re-told but not actually scientifically accurate. It might be the case that people who start with beer and end with liquor sometimes get sick because they loosen up with a beer buzz, and start drinking liquor too quickly. But there is no ...

Beer reductions can make very good sauces. For more flavor you go with darker beers, but you apparently want to shy away from using hoppy beers because the bitterness can become rather harsh. Just punch in something like "beer reduction" into your favorite search engine.

There is no cure for a hangover except to not drink in the first place.

Beer will evaporate down when boiled. During this it will become thicker. The alcohol will evaporate the quickest, then the water. Caramelization (Maillard reaction) will occur. The bitterness will NOT evaporate, making the bitterness more concentrated. However; boiling wort is "required" to make beer and excessive boiling is used in some styles to give it ...
