A bottle of beer in the freezer


How long should a bottle of beer be left in the freezer to reach a comfortable drinking temperature? Any guesstimates? Although, answer fast! For God's sake, I do not want to freeze my beer.
Cheers, Brian

Until it's cold enough.

Indeed.
Here I found an interesting article on freezing beer . But they still do not say approximately how long it took to reach the point where the beer almost froze.

For a 12oz. bottle, 45 minutes works for me. 750ml takes at least an hour. A thick bottle like a Belgian with a cork cage is safe up to an hour and a half. BTW, I don't put cans in the freezer--no wiggle room there.

Of course, it's much faster to cool it down by putting it in a bucket of ice water.
Unless you're trying to make your own icebock.

From room temp to cold in 3.5 minutes. I'm thinking I could use one of these. -- dgs

If you haven't done it yet, you should take it out now.

Depending on your settings, 15-20 mins is how long my freezer takes. > >> How long should a bottle of beer be left in the freezer to reach a >> comfortable drinking temperature? Any guesstimates?

What they use to do in the engine room on "the boat" was take a CO2 fire extinguisher and place the funnel over the bottle/can. One quick hit would instantly make the beer nice and drinkable :^)

Yeah, just make sure you use that "no spin" option when you put your beer in it. Nothing like spinning a beer for 3.5 minutes to make it an exciting opening.
