I've been messing around with the physics of the Guinness Drive for some time now. The general thermodynamics are tricky but nothing like as tricky as containing the fuel (it's a bit like Fusion in that respect). Many's the night I spent in the shed, I mean Lab, hoping to give birth to a solution, only to wake to a litter of empty cans...
Below is a photograph of testing conducted under carefully controlled conditions in Iceland. Ambient temperatures were circa
4 degrees Centigrade and all of the latent heat in the Guinness was transferred to the water in ten minutes. Following extensive testing of the Guinness, Iceland was steaming and so was I. However the results are not conclusive and more testing is needed.
