Can you chill warm beer using the sous vide? Yes! Sous vide is a cooking technique that uses a water bath along with an immersion circulator to cook food at low temperatures.

It has been used for years by chefs, but now it can also be done in your own kitchen. This blog post will teach you how to chill beer in sous vide in 15 minutes or less!

❄ Sous Vide Beer Chilling vs Traditional Beer Chilling Methods

The two traditional beer chilling methods are the freezer and the fridge.

The freezer method is very effective at cooling down beer quickly, but this often leads to over-chilling the beer. As a result, some of your favorite flavor is lost making it taste bland and boring. Also, leaving beer in the freezer for too long can lead to freezer burn.

The other traditional beer chilling method is the fridge. This can take up to 1-2 hours, but it does work well in preserving the flavor of your beer. However, this still requires you to set aside some time to chill your beer and can’t be used while entertaining guests or having a party when you need it quickly.

Using the sous vide to chill beer is great when you want cold beer fast without ruining its flavor.

When using this method, the beer is placed in a water bath with the immersion circulator running at 38°F (3.3°C) or below (the lower the temperature, the better). The sous vide doesn’t actually chill the water, it keeps it circulating which is helpful when you’ve got a large pot of ice to chill warm beer.

🍻 How To Chill Beer Using Sous Vide

1️⃣ Add water and ice to a large pot of water or a bucket large enough to hold up to 6 beer bottles or beer cans.

2️⃣ Place the immersion circulator in the water and set the temperature as low as it will go. In this case, the sous vide will not chill the water, but it will circulate the ice water around the beer.

3️⃣ Add the beer bottles or cans to the circulating water. If your bottles are floating to the top, use a weight to keep them down.

4️⃣ Let the circulating water chill the beer for 10 minutes. Remove from the cold water and serve while ice cold.

❔FAQ

Will sous vide wine chilling affect the taste of the beer?

Nope! This method will not dilute or affect the carbonation or taste of your beer in any way, it will just cool it down to the perfect temperature every time.

Can sous vide make water cold?

Generally, immersion circulators are used to heat up food as they only contain a heating element. However, the circulator part can be used along with ice water to consistently circulate very cold water to chill drinks quickly.

Don’t forget to use the sous vide to chill red or white wine!
