Also, we have talked about Stone Brewing Co. who also released a video of Stochasticity Project Cram Ale with Helium, which also could high-pitch your voice. But then again, this is also an April’s Fool, released April 1, 2014. But, because the gas molecules should move through the walls of the bubbles, this process is limited by solubility. Another video was also released by two German beer enthusiasts titled ‘’Helium Beer Test’’.

How amusing would it be if you took a drink of beer, and when you talked, it sounds like you just sucked all the helium out of a balloon? That’s the foundation behind helium beer, which come to think of it, would be a great fake prank at a super soft birthday party. As mentioned above, helium-infused beer doesn’t exist. He claims the beer is slightly dry and has an “ultra-smooth finish,” aside from, of course, altering the pitch of the drinker’s voice. Adding liquid helium to beer would result in a block of beer-coloured ice – it turns from liquid to gas at -220F.

Lightened from heavier gases like CO2, HeliYum takes advantages of the properties of helium — one of the noble gases — for a truly remarkable brew. Helium’s unique index of refraction creates brilliant clarity while providing an incredibly light mouth feel. Since Helium is an odorless gas, [pii_email_2574ee28734b829a5e42] it doesn’t compete with the natural aromas of the ingredients. From a freshness perspective, helium doesn’t oxidize which allows for a much longer shelf life. While devoting ourselves to the ‘Noble’ pursuit of perfecting the flavor of Noble Hops we’ve been exploring Noble Gasses as well.

I’ll also explain why the idea of helium-infused beer is so intriguing to beer lovers. While a lot of other infusion innovations have to do with adding different flavors into beer, the idea of adding helium did not. Helium is an odorless, tasteless gas that would do nothing to the beer except perhaps bubble it up a bit. There would be no additional benefit to creating such a concoction except for the aforementioned voice-changing and silliness. This beer became famous after a series of videos that showed the changes that occurred when drinking the beverage.

A helium beer is an April’s Fool issued by Stone Brewing Co. and Samuel Adams back in April 1, 2014. Stone’s April’s Fool announcement about their so-called Stochasticity Project Cram Ale with Helium, and Samuel Adams HeliYUM beer was the one that started the whole helium beer myth. To get to know about all the different beer out there is quite a challenge, especially when some beers are not even real. But, what is it with this helium beer, and why has it become such a huge topic? One thing’s sure, you’ll need to be critical about this. To second this point nitrogen is also not appreciably soluble in water.

In aqueous solution, carbon dioxide converts into carbonic acid, giving carbonated beverages an extra bite. Helium does no such thing, which gave the helium beer additional smoothness relative to a conventional carbonated brew.” Before we go too far to debunk it, C&EN gave it a shot and rigged up a helium laced beer test, since solubility levels of helium and nitrogen aren’t far off from one another. Helium turns out to sorta work for a beer, but not nearly in the ridiculous manner that the internet would have you believe. PS – good on Sam Adams founder, Jim Koch for being open to rolling with some fake science fun.

If that is the case, merely sipping on a beer would make even Uncle Pete sound like Alvin the Chipmunk in a matter of a few sips. The possibilities of fun lead people to get behind and embrace the idea that helium could somehow be added to beer to increase the fun factor. The website Science Everyday looked into the possibility of helium beer — and the outlook isn’t good.
