Bet You Didn’t Know You Could Have This Much Fun With A Newcastle Beer. What happens when you pour a generous splash of Newcastle Brown ale into a hot frying pan? Well, to some the results are mesmerizing. It must’ve been a long night of drinking for someone to come up with this science experiment. The hypnotic results could be due to the Leidenfrost affect in the beer, which creates a layer of vapor right above the surface of the pan and suspense the liquid just like a hovercraft in midair.
Normally alcohol, when poured into a hot pan, would burn off. But when the pan is at just the right temperature, the beers viscosity alters before it evaporates. So cheers to the Newcastle drinker for discovering this little trick. Now we know…. SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS!
