Chill drink calculator

Here’s something that could come in handy for any parties you may be planning in the future.

There’s a physicist in Poland who’s getting his masters in particle physics.  Well, he built an online calculator that tells you exactly how long it’ll take to chill your favorite alcohol.

It’s called the Chilled Drink Calculator, and it’s based on Newton’s Law of Cooling.  So yeah, it’s pretty accurate.  You just have to enter these five things . . .


1.  The type of booze you’re chilling . . . beer, wine, or liquor.

2.  The type of container it’s in . . . whether it’s in a can or a glass bottle.

3.  Where you’ve been storing it . . . like if it’s been at room temperature, or sitting outside on a hot day.

4.  How you’re chilling it . . . in the fridge, freezer, or ice water.

5.  How cold you want to get it.  Then it lists optimal temperatures for different drinks.


Once you enter that information, it will give you a number.  If you put a warm can of beer in the fridge, it should take approximately 40 minutes to hit an ideal temperature of 43 degrees.  Or if it’s a bottle of champagne,  it will take 2 hours and 24 minutes to hit a cool temperature of 48 degrees.
