Photo by Brett, B&W version by Google Auto Awesome

I've not seen Google do B&W before and I think it did a fine job. A little motivation here for me to see if I can come up with a better interpretation. Thanks Google!

Computer Color is Broken

When blending colors, most software (including Photoshop) gets it all wrong. Check out this video to see how and why.

Polypin - Easy cask ale/firkin for home brewers - I have to try this! #homebrew #realale #polypin #caskale
Have you used a polypin? It’s a flexible, low-cost cask-conditioning solution that will serve you well.

While this sounds really great, does anyone know where we can purchase a polypin in the US?

We picked up a couple of brewing ingredient kits today, one of them being for a Spiced Belgian Wit. This article is very timely for me. Can you add any advice?
Due to the success of Allagash White, we asked Allagash Brewmaster Jason Perkins to share five things to remember to brew a better witbier.

Some of my recent images.

The first one is from Schoodic Point. It is the subject of the prior Google Auto Awesome B&W post.

Next is an HDR interpretation of Bass Harbor Light taken while my sister and niece were visiting last summer.

The final image is of Ravens Nest in the Schoodic Section of Acadia National Park. Be cautious if you visit this area as it is rocky with loose ground, and unguarded drops that Will Kill You!

Fermentation or Kegerator Controller

Here is a project I will do in the next year. I intend to build a chest freezer kegerator. Any thoughts for me? Have you used this or other temperature controllers?
A temperature controller is a must-have piece of homebrew equipment, and building your own temperature controller is cheap and easy!

Brew your own Stone Pale Ale

American Homebrewer's Association shared this with us. Stone Brewing is sharing their recipie for their Pale Ale and will no longer be brewing it themselves. Will you give it a try? Have you ever heard of Ahtanum hops?
While we follow our own muse at Stone, we also pay attention to our fans. Believe it or not, even with more than 600,000 followers across all of our social media channels, we read each and every comment posted on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and more. It’s awesome to have fans that care enough to take…

Automaton built in 1700s plays music

Could you build this with only the tools available before the American Revolution?

I can't imagine building this at all. Just amazing!
