All this time I thought it was over priming that caused a bottle gusher. Really is the reaction of an anitbubble and a bubble...

I say lose the turkey fryer and brew with bubbles. Via sonoluminescence you should be able to rapidly achieve a temp of at least 10,000 degrees Celsius, give or take. Now that's a boil.

PiTA - Your post saved me 3 minutes, thanks... Sounds like matter and antimatter, but I can't bring myself to read it...

Interesting experiment :) Bubbles are fun :)

Btw, back in highschool I made a chemistry project on oscillating reactions and one of the experiments there was a periodic gas evolution of nitrogen in a glass of beer. Though it wasn't beer in the glass it was a mixture of ammonium sulphate and sodium nitrite, with some sulphuric acid and another salt to increase the suface tension. The reaction produced nitrogen gas, but the really fun thing is that when the glass was left untouched, it was periodic bursts of gas generated in the glass with a periodicity of about 10 seconds. Really looked like magic.

The high surface tension means that in the absence of nucleation sites there is a kind of dynamic hysteresis effect regarding the solubility of nitrogen in the liquied that gives rise to periodic bursts of gas, then there is another 10 seconds of buildup of new gas in solution until the surface tension barrier is reached and there is another burst. One the first burst the entire liquied is excited and quickly depletes the liquied of dissolved gas.

Very funny, Andrew. I had a good holiday laugh.
