I didn't hate my lumia 820 windows phone, but I was always planning on going back to Android once its contract expired. I didn't envision it falling from my jacket pocket, bouncing of my front bike wheel and it flying off 10m down the road rendering it shattered and useless. So anyway now using Mrs K's old Xperia ray and have installed +CyanogenMod on it. It would be fair to say Android is by far a superior platform.

Perfect pear wine
I made the pear wine on the same day as the courgette and sultana, but it appears I can't type as quickly as can make wine, so with a lag of a couple of days, here's how I did it: I was prompted to try and make the pear wine as a result of seeing they were ...

Recanting the decant
In 2011 I made my first ever batch of home made wine; a mix of blackberry and elderberry and just elderberry wine. After a while in their demijohns I bottled them into various bottles. Some old screw cap wine bottles, some old screw cap spirit bottles and s...

Which is worse? (A) Getting up at 05.10 to catch the 06.08 train to work because you are forced to take 2 days out of the office for some religious holiday which has no relevance in modern society. Or (B) doing the above dropping your train pass down the toilet then missing the cunting train

My lovely lady wife has been making more home brew wine, to find out how to get booze for free* take a peek.

*not actually free but very cheap.
 
And then you add the yeast
After commandeering the top of the hob as somewhere to store the wine for 24 hours to allow the campden tablets to do their job, I was ready to add the yeast. This had also allowed more than enough time for the  Courgette and Sultana wine  to warm up to roo...

Brew perfect beer with help from the @Raspberry_Pi
http://adafru.it/b98679

Linux Voice has this awesome tutorial up on making your home brew even better by adding in a Raspberry Pi. They write, “The BrewPi isn’t an easier way of making of making beer. It’s an easier way to make it perfect.” We’re sold!

Beer is lovely. But when you’re making it at home, the biggest challenge (after discovering a way to boil vast quantities of water) is always finding somewhere to leave your brew to ferment. It’s this stage of beer-making magic that turns what’s known as wort into beer, creating alcohol and oodles of flavour. And for this stage to work well, you ideally need to be able to manage the temperature of the environment your beer is sitting in. In the UK, many amateur brewers resort to using an ‘airing cupboard’, normally situated next to the hot water tank and used for drying clothes. This isn’t a bad place, because it’s warmish – many beer kits like to ferment at around 20 degree centigrade – and the temperature doesn’t fluctuate massively. But it still fluctuates, and it may even prove too warm. Many yeasts, especially for ale, prefer things a little cooler (18–20 degrees, ideally, but this depends on the beer). And lifting 25 litres of wort into a first-floor cupboard could break your back, and you’ve got a hygiene nightmare if it falls over, or falls through the flimsy shelf its sitting on.

BrewPi is the answer to this conundrum. It’s a brilliant project that brings together a love of Linux, a little hardware hacking and plenty of beer into one fermenting barrel of hoppy goodness. It’s essentially a device that controls the environment surrounding the fermenting bucket of beer, enabling you to make perfect beer every time, regardless of climate and house heating cycles. Many people use an old fridge or freezer as the surrounding container and connect the BrewPi to a cooling and heating mechanism to enable its clever algorithms to create the perfect environment for your beer. The BrewPi itself is a mixture of hardware, software and initiative. Not only has its creator, Elco Jacobs, built an incredibly effective system for fermenting beer, he’s created an extremely helpful community of BrewPi enthusiasts, an online shop and an assembly system for easy access to all of the bits and pieces you’ll need.
