This week we met up after voting and put in a fair share of work on some of the projects we are working on.
Matt decided to brew up a batch of Indian Pale ale
We forgot the large brewing spoon so we had to use the tiny one on the left.
Matt improvising. There was too much foam to close up the fermenter
Marcel started work on his mendel90. I brought through 90% of the parts there is just a few printed parts and some 8mm rods needed to put it together.
I wired up the new relay board to the reflow oven and gave it a test run. We’re still not getting the ideal heating times yet though.
Matt Got a awesome new shiny soldering station for his birthday. He brought it around to give it a test drive.
Matt soldered up a attiny on to a pieces of bread board and ran a blink example off it. Worked well so it will be the start of many attiny projects to come.
We gave the first Pale Ale a taste as its been ageing for a week and half. Really maturing nicely. gets better with every week that goes by.
Worked on a couple ideas for the bottling line we are building for beer.
There will be a small carousel to move the bottles between the filling and capping stations.
We will also be building a sanitizer that will take 12 bottles at a time.
What’s in store for the next meetup:
Next week the new mendel90 mechanically put together.
Put together a prototype of the beer carousel.
Assemble the beer capper.
Till next time…
