Tomorrow and Sunday PSU is hosting Science Hack Day PDX. This free to attend avent is going to be a blast, I'm really looking forward to it. I will be there checking out what people are working on, and interviewing them on Twitch. We will likely end up editing together the highlights for later use on https://developer.ibm.com/code/. I expect there will be a bunch of interesting projects in progress so should be super fun.
UPDATE: All the interviews went really well and were super fun, the whole list can be found on YouTube here. I have to admit I had such a good time doing this I am going to try to make a habit of it!
On Monday 9/11 at 9am PDT I will brew beer and talk brewing on Twitch. I'm still a little bit surprised about this one but hopefully it goes well and I have an excuse to do it again one day. Getting paid to brew has always been kind of a dream - maybe I'm not going pro but for one day, it feels pretty close! I decided to brew a Cascadian Dark Ale for the event; I put the recipe up if you want to see what I'm making.
UPDATE: the session went great, and can be found on YouTube here
Finally, I'm super excited to be speaking at SeaGL 2017 in a little more than a month! I also answered a little Q&A about the talk. It should be a lot of fun to talk about my brewing system, and how using a Raspberry Pi has changed how I make beer (and in my opinion gone a long way to improve it).
Hopefully I'll see you at PSU, SeaGL, or online for one of the Twitch streams!

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 …read more
Inspired by our founders
"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."
Obviously for the sake of our country I need …read more
Mashing with steam
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 …read more
