Mains Beer?

My head occasionally says "what about mains-beer?". Instead of buying stuff to take home, you have a beer-tap on the sink. Here is how it might work: You build a distribution centre, which may just be storage, but could also be a brewery, and run pipes around a nearby residential area. Each home has a beer-meter like a water-meter which is data-linked to a consumer-unit on a beer-tap on a sink. The distribution-point provides mains-beer under gravity, consumption of which is measured by the meter and data is fed to the consumer-unit. That box displays beer consumption, and via a radio-link informs the distribution-point. Periodically the lines will need to be flushed, here's how that would work: > The centre switches the supply from beer to water, which is coloured with a harmless-dye, and radios the consumer-units which display the message "free beer" whilst playing Happy Hour. Consumers vigorously empty the lines while it's free. When the water hits the meter-unit an optical-sensor calls the consumer-unit to shut off via a solenoid-valve, the consumer-unit reports back to the distribution-centre that water has reached it. After a set period the distribution-centre radios the units which haven't yet reported water to open (solenoid). Any units failing to give an adequate response within a reasonable period are radioed to display a "fault" message and flagged for a service-visit. The distribution-centre then switches supply to cleaning-fluid, and messages all consumer-units to display "cleaning!" and open up (solenoid). Once sufficient flow has gone through each meter, they shut off (solenoid) and radio-back. Then a water-flush follows in a similar way. Once the lines have been cleaned, the supply is switched back beer, the consumer units run until they no longer read "water", plus a bit more to clear dead-volume between meter and tap. Then the consumer-units display "read to dispense fresh beer". Pros: Beer is chilled by the ground in which piping is laid No packaging-costs (cans / bottles / kegs) Less transport costs Drinkers have an almost unlimited supply enabling them to drink more than they might otherwise. No more beer runs when the game runs long or uninvited guests show up (Re-design) Consumer units can display total quantities dispensed, with cost and "don't you think you've had enough?" Cons: Initial infrastructure cost It'll work best with poor quality-beer Well?

Beer Battleship

I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum to post this.  I want to make a portable Beer Battleship game for my friends coming home party.  I attached and image of the basic setup for the game. I need some input on how I could make this setup portable. I would want three pieces of plywood that stack together with hinges at the bottom.  When you opened the game up two pieces would lay flat on the table with the middle piece sticking straight up at a 90 degree angle.  I just can't think of how I can make it stand up straight while still making it portable.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

What is your beer like?

In the 1970's beer in the UK started turning bad. Fed-up the increasingly poor quality of beer that was too fizzy, had no character and no taste - some guys formed what was to become CAMRA.Largely due to CAMRA's efforts there are now a lot of independent breweries and several pubs selling their beers in my local area. I can get a good choice in several pubs in the town and village, last night I was at a small beer-festival - they had 63 beers on the list.This guy has a lot of information on the beer near me.In addition to 'real ale' a lot of these pubs have a wide range of bottled-beers such as European lagers. Then there are some bars that stick mainly to these imported beers.(You can drink fizzy tasteless stuff in plenty of bars of course)So what is the booze like where you are?

Japanese brewer Sapporo is planning on making some "space beer" from a third generation of barley grains that spent five months on the International Space Station in 2006. Only 100 bottles will be made from this crop, though, and won't be commercially available. Which is fine because it won't taste any different and would be freakishly expensive. Space Beer

Smurfs (bizarre)

When I take a holiday in Wales we always listen to "The Smurfs" (Father Abraham in Smurfland) - it's a tradition. Hence the phrase "The Smurfs have finished" meaning "Someone change the record". If you've not been exposed to this yet, see here: Then there's "Smurfing beer" - quote: "you don't get drunk and it isn't dear" (It isn't beer) www.youtube.com/watch The Pinoccio song questions - quote "Pinoccio, Pinoccio, why are you made of wood?" www.youtube.com/watch The annoying but up-beat Dippety-Do song: www.youtube.com/watch Looking at the album cover I wonder exactly what happens when the floating-head of Father Abraham appears in Smurfland - do they panic and start singing lest he smite them?

What a surprising find.

I'm brewing up a batch of cider for the holidays. Home brewing is something I used to be into and haven't done in a while, but I thought it would be fun to get back into. Way back, 8 years ago, when we moved I stored my empties in the attic. Dragging them out today I was surprised to find one of the bottles was capped. So being curious I cracked the top and low and behold it was still carbonated, after 8 years in an attic which can reach 140 degrees in the summer. As you can see from the rather blurry picture(sorry), the color is very dark, but with a nice creamy head, it was very clear, not surprising;y, the arome was strongly caramel. On the palate it was smooth and creamy like a schwarzbier. The flavor was caramel and balsamic without the vinegar (like a balsamic reduction). Discretion being the better part of valor, I spat it out and washed my mouth with Listerine. Still it was an interesting experience. Just wanted to share.

Kiteman Recommends: Punk IPA

I just came across a beer (bought in Tesco) from a brewery that is new to me, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye on.The beer is Punk IPA: Post Modern Classic Pale Ale, from the BrewDog brewery in Fraserburgh, Scotland. A fresh, clean beer, with an ABV of 6%, it's an easy drinker.According to their website, they have a range of beers, mainly ales and stouts, but with one pilsner as well. They are all modern, pure-ingredient takes on classic brews.I'm not a beer expert, but I am a beer snob. Based on this IPA, and the brewers' Maker attitude, I plan on making BrewDog a regular presence in my beer stocks.Even better news for our resident brewers (Lemonie and moaner70 to name two), they have a vacancy - if you have it in you, and can commute to Scotland, They are looking for a new brewer.

Robot Bartender

If you ask this bartender for something that's not an Asahi beer, it might malfunction. The Asahi Beer Robot is a robotic bartender that can uncap bottles and pour beer, as well as talk. While the claim that it's the best robot ever might be a little extreme, it seems to be working as a very effective marketing tool. It took a team of engineers over half of a year to build and tune its skills--which makes it far too young to be at a bar.Check out the video or the link at engadget.Asahi should probably enter this into the Robot Contest.

Newsflash: beer is now alcoholic!

From the BBC: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has signed a bill that officially classifies beer as alcoholic. Until now anything containing less than 10% alcohol in Russia has been considered a foodstuff. The move, signed into law on Wednesday, will allow ministers to control the sale of beer in the same way that spirits are controlled. Russian alcohol consumption is already twice the critical level set by the World Health Organization. Although vodka has long been the traditional tipple in Russia, beer has soared in popularity, being marketed as a healthier alternative to spirits. Over the past decade, beer sales in Russia have risen more than 40% while vodka sales have fallen by nearly 30%. Correspondents say it is common to see people swigging beer in the street and in parks as if they are drinking soft drinks. It is not restricted to certain stores and is sold around the clock.

Also does anybody have any suggestions for cheap fiberglass or resin to coat the bottle caps.  Didn't realize how expensive the stuff is.  Cheaper is better.

Sous Vide for $20

Sous vide is a cool way of cooking foods at low temperatures for a long time that makes the flavors more intense as a result. Even the cheapest setup for this is about $150 if you already have a rice cooker or crock pot lying around. Serious Eats has explored this territory before with success and now has a method for doing this with nothing but a simple beer cooler and some ziploc bags. To do it you need to fill up your cooler with water a couple degrees higher than your target temperature. Then just drop in ziploc bags with your meat inside. Wait an hour or two and voila! Cheap sous vide. This method only works for a couple hours so it won't help you cook your ribs for 48 hours, but but does give you an introduction to the technique and help you decide if you want to go for the full setup.

Beer, brewing, bottling, and CO2

This started as an unrelated comment thread on a post about freezing blueberries. It seems like such a great topic I created this forum for it. Brewers? Ideas? Beergnome: I do it for a living ;) we force carbonate as a rule. we only naturally carbonate for special order casks. our economy of scale doesn't allow otherwise.. fezrock it is possible to create a counter pressure rig for judging bottles for your homebrew, I'm sure there is an instructable for it,, if not there should be. it requires you creating an envelope of CO2 in the bottle, then having a T rig that will take the beer under pressure in the bottle with counter pressure of CO2 to keep the dissolved CO2 in the beer in solution. Its a bit of work, but if you care about competition at all. a clean bottle always bumps up the score. Fezrock: Nice career! I'm still quite the novice, but practice makes better! As to your question, I haven't seen anything like it. Topping the bottle out with CO2 would help the end product, but wouldn't do much for pressure loss. Nitrogen would be similar, but whichever is the heavier gas (not sure) would be marginally better for this lo-tech solution. On a small scale, if a sealed environment could be created to fit your capper around your cap, more gas pressure could be applied. I imagine an upright lever capper would be needed to work that out. Thanks for that idea seed! On a larger scale, if you could cap in a larger chamber, you could set the CO2/N2 pressure in the chamber to whatever you needed it to be. This would also give you space to insert your brew without introducing air. Or just overcarbonate the brew to make up for carbonation loss to outgassing. Crazy idea: add a small amount of dry ice without freezing the brew. (you don't need leftover yeasts anyway!) It sounds like a fun experiment, and could be adjusted to suit your pressure needs.

70-note "Bottle Organ"

Here's one for you... I'm looking to create a 70 note bottle organ, inspired by this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzucpFgi7Xk Except I'm wanting to build mine in a more "automatic" state - played via MIDI notes, an arduino and lots and lots of solenoids making spoons hit the bottles.. That side of it I've got covered thanks to other excellent instructables which have taught me a lot about micro electronics. What I am currently trying to work out is if there is a way to change the pitch of bottles in any way except simply adding water. Would another liquid achieve the same results with less "spill risk"? Does it even need to be a liquid? I'm guessing it needs to be a liquid as I believe the physics of the noise made when a bottle is struck is based on the water absorbing vibrations, making them slower and lowering the pitch. If anyone has experience tuning multiple bottles to be struck as an instrument then please do reply! Alternatively if anyone has any novel suggestions for things which would be easier to persuade 70 notes out of then please also reply! End goal - be able to play flight of the bumblebee at full speed with chords and out-nerd the guys in the video. Ideally on bottles. Many thanks! Leo

Why does wine or beer pair better with matching food?

This has always stumped me; however should not be confused with the question: "what goes with wine or how to pair wine?" I know that in theory, heartier wines pair well with heartier food; and that light, refreshing wines should pair with light, refreshing food. In practice, I agree that wines or beers tend to pair better with matching qualities in food. Whereas with all other beverages, I always feel that contrasting pairings work best. Dessert for me always requires a black, robust cup of coffee; and a cold, sweet Coke always goes very nicely with a savory lunch. The reason why these pairings work so well is because of their contrasts. So, what is so special about beer or wine that they pair better with food of similar characteristics?

For some people, impairment might result after as little as one drink." I will be going into the gym with my health class to attempt to play basketball tomorrow or monday. But until then I am curious as to how these work. http://www.drunkbusters.com/store/shopexd.asp?id=19
