How long does it take 150 ml of water to freeze?

That depends. Ask not: 'How long does it take 150ml of water to freeze?' Rather ask: 'How cold is the temperature surrounding the water?' and: 'What is the heat conductivity of the vessel containing the water?' According to the second law of thermodynamics, an object hotter than its surroundings will tend to cool and vice versa. So, the cooler the surrounding temperature, the faster the water will freeze.
