How To Use A Drill Chill

Congratulations! You've (most likely) landed on this page because you have either bought your very own Drill Chill or someone gifted you one (what legends!). 

If you don't have one you can buy one here.

What Is A Drill Chill?

You might be wondering "what on earth is this thing?". We hear you, especially if you've been given this as a gift.

Quite simply the Drill Chill is a drill attachment that helps chill a beer down down to 2-3°C within just 2 minutes. More on the science behind how it does this below but for now a couple things...

When Will You Use A Drill Chill

Ever wanted to have a nice cold beer but realised you forgot to restock the fridge... or maybe you've just had one of our packs delivered and would like to enjoy one of the beers.... or maybe you've had some unexpected guests drop buy and you're out of cold beer.

These types of occasions are perfect for using a Drill Chill. You'll have cold beer within a matter of minutes.

Step by Step Instructions: How to Use a Drill Chill

First here is what you'll need:

  • Drill chill attachment

  • Some ice, about a trays worth of ice will suffice. This amount of ice will chill down about 2 - 4 beers.

  • Some water

  • Container 

  • Cordless drill

1. Place the drill chill attachment into the cordless drill and tighten the chuck. Set the drill to low speed. 

2. In the container place the ice and some water. If you are at a bbq with an esky filled with ice this will work great as well.

3. Clip the beer can onto the end of the drill chill ensuring the beer is securely clipped in.

4. Place the can into the container of ice and start spinning on low for 2 minutes to get the beer ice cold.

5. After 2 minutes remove the beer from the ice and unclip it from the drill. The beer is ready to enjoy straight away.

How Does This Work?

Beer placed in ice will take about 15 - 20 minutes to chill down completely. By spinning the beer you are introducing convection and thereby increasing the rate at which heat is transfered between the can and the surrounding ice. If using a container with about a trays worth of ice you will likely notice the ice in the container becoming smaller during the 2 minutes of spinning which is the transfer of heat occuring.

Why Doesn't The Beer Explode When I Open It?

You might be thinking the can will explode as soon as you open it, but it won't. Because we are spinning the can and not shaking it you’re able to open the beer straight away and there will be minimal to no froth. Pour into your favourite beer glass and enjoy.
