Supercooling a liquid requires cooling the water below its freezing point without it turning into a solid. Water freezes easily because it can rapidly crystallize, however with a thermometer and constant observation you may be able to super cool a bottle of Fiji Water. Fiji Water must be monitored due to high amount of mineral and other items that can accelerate the freezing process and preventing the Fiji Water from becoming supercooled.
Things You'll Need
- Fiji Water
Look at your bottle of Fiji Water and make sure it is tightly closed. An open bottle will disturb the supercooling process.
Place the Fiji Water in the freezer and close the freezer door. Set thetimer to one hour. Check at an hour and two hours then begin to monitor the Fiji Water bottle every 10 to 15 minutes.
Watch for crystallization, and once you begin to see the viscosity of the water increase, take the water out of the freezer and give it a slight shake to loosen up the beginning forms of crystallization.
Open the bottle and you can now drink from your super-cooled Fiji Water bottle.
Tips & Warnings
- If you do not regularly monitor the Fiji Water bottle you will freeze the bottle.
- Be wary that the Fiji Water is very cold when super-cooled and may bother one with sensitive teeth.
- Water expands when frozen, make sure the bottle is not completely full when supercooling.
