The World's First Jet Powered Beer Cooler - Keeping your beer really cold is a challenge. But Simon Jansen found a solution that relied on the fact that when liquid rapidly expands into a gas it extracts heat from its surroundings. Simon used a gas turbine to drain the propane tank as fast as possible. This created a serious cooling effect in the water bath surrounding the tank in which he placed his beer.

Simon noted: "The final result after running the engine for about 5 minutes … The engine itself will run at up to 100,000 rpm with exhaust temperatures of around 500 C and noise levels in excess of 125 dBA. The beer is successfully chilled to a nice cool 2 C."
