Homebrew contest ?

Hi, Is the Homebrew contest for drinks only, or also home-brew equipment ? At some point it had some brew equipment as a main image, and there are also a few equipment entries as well. Thank you,

homebrew distilling question is this safe-see picture. Answered

Hi, I saw instructions about homebrewing in a book i downloaded and have now lost. The picture shows the essence of it. Is this safe? would it actually concentrate the alcohol? the idea is to keep topping up the mash with sugar and water, using high alcohol tolerance yeast. would distilling the product of this make a safe product? thanks.

Do ATX Power supplies convert AC to DC power?

Hello all, I am sure this is a silly question for the experienced, but seeing as I'm just starting to really get into this stuff, any help would be appreciated. I am writing to get a bit of consensus to assure myself the a ATX power supply will convert AC power in to DC power out.  I would like to save myself the hassle of taking apart a computer if this is not the case.  In the event I'm wrong, what does convert AC to DC power? Just to give you an idea of what I need this for, this power supply will be used to run the electrolytic etching process for use with copper in a copper sulfate bath.  I'll be using the etch process to etch through copper plates (saves a lot of money compared to ferric chloride) The last question I had is if anyone knows how to discharge any residual energy within the ATX system.  I have an instructable on converting the ATX into a power supply, but I feel like I read the residual power in the system can be quite nasty if it shocks you, so I'd like to avoid that.  In fact, any suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks! Andrew

Peanut Butter & Jelly Beer!

Short's Brewery has a Peanut Butter and Jelly Beer.  My favorite sandwich of all time is the PB&J.  And, why not? Beer = Liquid Bread. I'm thinking of making my own. I've been homebrewing for about 5 years now, thanks to this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-Beer/  (check it out). Maybe an American Rye with peanut powder and some sort of fruit added. Blackberry? Strawberry? Thoughts? Suggestions? Does this make you say "mmmm" or "blegh!!!"? P.S. Yes, I know Peanut Butter and Jelly is an American idea. Marmite Beer is not appealing to me in the slightest.

Arduino EPROM Programming?

Ok, so I have decided to make an EPROM programmer so I can upload NES games to cartridges ( home-brew, not pirated. ) Does anyone know how to do this? I am a novice at coding, and, when it comes down to wiring, I can't really discern which resistor goes here and there and what value it should be, things like that. When I google "arduino eprom writer" All I get is EEPROM writers. I just want to know if someone on instructables has done it, and how.

NOOB homebrew on psp slim

Hey guys(and maybe girls), i just hacked my brothers psp slim. Now i am used to the phat pap where you install the 1.50 subset to get homebrew to work, but that said only for fat psp. Only some homebrew works on the slim psp, but has major issues. for instance psp revolution has no sound anywhere, and none of the bottom buttons work. I have tried both the 5.00 and 1.50 kernels in the recovery menu. Is there some patch, or homebrew launcher that i dont know about?? should i install the 1.50 kernel addon anyway? firmware is 5.00 M33-6

The yeast in my mead is not creating any Co2. What should I do?

I've been brewing mead at home for a couple of months now. I started a 1 gallon batch of mint and honey mead about an hour ago and there is no activity going on in it. The yeast looks like it is swimming around but there is no carbonation bubbling to the top. I used dry active yeast which is what I've used for other batches over the past months. Q1: Should I wait until tomorrow and check it? Q2: Should I add another pack of yeast to it? Q3: Referring to Q2, will adding any more yeast to it cause a yeasty brew in the final product?

Multifunctional Wii

Okay.... So, a couple of days ago, my friend was running around and ran through the cable for my Gamecube controller connected to my Wii, the Wii fell a good 3 feet (just an estimate). And now the Eject Disk Button is jammed a little and every once in a while the Wii completely shuts it self off. Not like pressing the off button, but like pulling the power plug. I can't send it to Nintendo because I have homebrew on it and I don't want to lose it. What can I do?

High Tech Microscopy on a Very Tight Budget

 Among microscopy amateurs there is a long established tradition of grinding lenses and making their own microscopes. ( Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, who is known as the "Father of Microbiology", was a linen-draper by trade with no formal scientific education, yet his skill at making microscopes and his observations won him international recognition.)  When it comes to non optical microscopy (electron and scanning probe) the idea of making your own microscope at home is more intimidating. Mostly because of the cost and difficulty of getting parts you'll need.  But it seems that this man, John D. Alexander from Gilbert, AZ, found a clever way to build a scanning tunneling microscope using cheap and commonly available parts.   Have a look at his site www.geocities.com/spm_stm/Project.html  Very interesting. If someone of you will try to build his own microscope, let us know.

(closed) One year of Pro for quick connect, for MaKey MaKey

MaKey MaKey is an electronic inventor's kit (simple closed connections via USB + music program + fruit = banana piano). More here: http://www.makeymakey.com One problem I've been running into is that it is an additional challenge to rotate quickly between more than one project per MaKey MaKey. The MaKey MaKey has 12 signal pins (female) on the back, pins for ground and 5v outputs, and six pair of alligator clip holes on the board. I've got some ideas on how to make quick connects so that I can freely travel between projects using just a system of male/female connections, where the MaKey MaKey has one type and my projects have the other. Included are some images to get ideas sparking around. If you can post a project detailing one method of a unique quick connect system for MaKey MaKey before the end of February, you're entered. I'll hand out one year of Pro for first place and one 3 month of Pro for second place. I'll choose the winners, but will pay attention to any community feedback. Points don't matter, so points arbitrarily awarded for thriftiness and resourcefulness, creative flair, quality of documentation, and use of MaKey MaKey header pins and other connections. 1st place: 1 year of Pro 2nd place: 3 months of Pro Bonus points for tutorials with resource files and specs that are easily interchangeable between tools, materials, and methods of tech/crafting. Useful formats can include SVG, STL, and others. Here's a couple of projects we got featured that could have really used a quick connect system going on using our laser cutter: Hydrophobic Drum Pad (homepaged, generated 1st place prize for this contest) Music Box (featured, generated 2nd place prize for this contest)

How can I make a homebrew EEPROM programmer?

Hi everyone!  I have some EEPROMS I would like to burn (27C512, 27C256, 24C256).  I have a Parallax Propeller, a Z80, a 6502, and an Arduino Uno to help me make an EEPROM burner.  I know that EEPROM burners run $40+ commercially (even on EBAY!), so I would like to try building my own at home.  I have an abundant supply of 74XXXX chips at home, as well as a good supply of capacitors and resistors.   I don't have a Parallel Port on my computer, but I have a USB port as well as an RS232 to USB converter.  I'm running Windows XP and Ubuntu - Lucid Lynx 10.04, so if I need a specific OS to burn these EEPROMS, I have Windows and Linux. I need an EEPROM burner that could  erase/burn the 27CXXX EEPROMS/EPROMS/PROMS.  I know through using the Propeller that I can write to the 24C256 through the Propeller, but could someone please help me in building a homebrew EEPROM burner?
