    Well then I will try this here, I am starting some work on my next project and I need to ask a question, can beer cool a pc without changing the taste? (I think that it might) also would the cooling system with beer running through it suffer from way more corrosion then it was meant to? If you have any ideas that you dont mind sharing with me plez. add.

    thank you, Samurai75007
    (yes I know crazy idea)

    Why is that silly? It’s not carbonated. Though I do think it will change the flavor if used, what if it didn’t cool the computer but if you used a radiator to cool the beer.

    I think what Risky means is: why on Earth would you want to use beer to cool a PC?!?

    I think you've been reading too much MegaTokyo...

    haha, of course it wil change in taste and it will go horibly wrong. and is this because you wanted a bleed of tap to pour a pint? just run it on de ironised water with some kind of thermal stuff lol. and just get a create of Beer and drink that instead

    Indeed. Although i have dreamt of a beer cooled PC for some time, realistically it will most likley turn into an organic sludge in time, as beer is made from organic materials and bacteria in the fermenting process...you probably dont want to have to clean that mess out of all of your blocks after a week.

    Stick with oil.

    At our bar we need to clean the pipes out weekly due to sludge that gets in them. Imagine that on your IO cards and slots

    yah you would have to rinse the loop out very often and it would change the taste, not to mention that a lot of water cooling kit has reactive metals in them that aren't considered food grade. you would get a good deal of lead, zinc tin and sulphur which aren't tastey.
