taps

I was lucky to have a talk about brewing beer with Linux, Python and a Respberry Pi chosen for OpenWest 2017. As part of that talk I wanted to put up a quick post with the slides from the talk and links to some of the resources I used. It's also worth taking a look at a previous post about my electric brewery as I include some details and links there as well.

In preparation for the talk I wrote about the system for opensource.com. That turned out to be really popular, and was then mentioned on Hackaday and raspberrypi.org as well. It's probably worth reminding folks to follow me on twitter @docaedo if you want any updates on the next things I'll be doing with the system. It's also a pretty convenient way to reach me if you have questions :)

Fri December 30 2016 by Christopher Aedo

While writing about my electric brewing system I thought it would be helpful to outline what a typical brew day looks like with that setup. Since that post was already getting too long I decided to put this in it's own relatively small post.

The Electric Brewery

Sun December 25 2016 by Christopher Aedo

One of my best friends (bones!) sent me an email asking if I'd ever heard of this thing called Hosehead (it's a control system for an electric brewery using open source software called Strangebrew Elsinore). I had never heard of it, but had been thinking on and off for some …

1k IPA on tap

I have been brewing for a while now (around 10 years I think?), and have always done 5 gallon batches, and kegged into corny kegs rather than bottling. (Mainly because I love brewing, love beer, and really like having beer on tap in the kitchen.) I have been interested in …

Inspired by our founders

Tue August 14 2012 by Christopher

"AMERICA has a proud history of drinking on the job. Craftsmen who built the first government buildings in the 17th century were sometimes paid in brandy. The 19th-century railroaders who laid the foundations of modern America were notoriously thirsty."

The Economist

Obviously for the sake of our country I need …

Mashing with steam

Thu August 20 2009 by Christopher Aedo

I've been brewing beer for a little while now, and have been having a lot of fun with it. As it seems to go with all my hobbies I just kept escalating, expecting to eventually have a huge crazy brewing setup (aka "brew sculpture") with three computer controlled burners, multiple …

Homebrew Primer

Wed August 19 2009 by Christopher Aedo

I wrote this up for my friend Moshe, and have since forwarded it to probably five or six people who are interested in brewing their own beer. I thought I might as well put it up here, should make it a lot easier for me to share!

WOW, here's my …
