Q:

Can you freeze cooked lobster?

A:

Cooked lobster can be frozen, but the quality of the meat is diminished. Freeze uncooked lobster in its shell to preserve the taste of the meat and to prevent the meat from drying out.

Store live lobster in an open container in the refrigerator. Keep it moist using wet seaweed or paper towels dampened with seawater. Newspaper dampened in seawater can also be used to keep the lobster's gills moist. Lobsters can live up to 48 hours after purchase or capture in this environment. After the lobster is cooked, place any unused or uneaten portions inside airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to three days.

    Can frozen beer be saved?

    A:

    Frozen beer usually remains drinkable after a single freeze, but multiple freezes and thaws breaks down the beer and separates its contents, which reduces the quality. Unlike many types of perishable foods, no danger comes from freezing and thawing beer. However, subjecting beer to extremely cold temperatures causes flakes to form, which make beer less palatable to drink.
