You know what it’s like; you’re on the sofa at home (potentially in your underpants) watching the game or a movie and you decide to enjoy a can or bottle of beer. But you can never pour it like they do in the pub! You either get too much foam, or not enough, and it never tastes as good. Well, no longer. In this video Chris Clarke shows you the five simple steps to getting it just right — according to science.

The most important bit of science to consider when pouring any carbonated beverage is how carbon dioxide molecules gather together to form bubbles, or froth — the scientific term for this is ‘nucleation’. The real trick behind the Scientifically Perfect Pour is all about controlling the speed at which nucleation occurs.

Beer is great, but it’s hard to get that perfect pour with just the right head for your visual and taste pleasure. As usual, science solves all of life’s problems, and Head Squeeze will show you the five easy steps you can take to pour the perfect pint at home. Don’t worry, all of the tricky laser work has been done for you. Yeah. Lasers for beer.
