Why does a propane bottle sometimes freeze despite good weather?

The content of a propane bottle is liquid and is converted into gas. If the stove is at the highest setting for a long time, it requires too much transformation at the same time and the residual content of the bottle starts to freeze. The fireplace will burn lower and will go out. The bottle is then not empty and the frost on the outside of the bottle shows the residual content. The fireplace can be lit again after about 20 minutes. This is done SOMS with the 5 kg bottles. We therefore recommend the 10 kg. to use a bottle in which this is rare. This is because a 10 kg bottle has a diameter of 30 cm and a 5 kg has a diameter of 24 cm.
