Is it for taking photos, or to skunk a beer quickly?

Is that a red light in the box that is making an etched label on the glass glow red or a red label? That's cool.

That's a red label.

I'm glad you guys like it, it really creates quite a cool effect.

How fast does it heat up the beer? ...Or is it diode technology?

Hmmm. I wonder if you had an etched glass and a colored light if it would glow that color. It might be cool to set up a display for a few pint glasses. You could get some different color lights and have them cycle through.

Electronically that would be easy to wire, I just don't know if the whole glass would light up fully in regular light.

I haven't really noticed much heat from it. The point of it for me was just to take pictures, so the glass only sits on it long enough to take a few shots. And then gets downed
