Open Source Beer

In case you don't follow the Free Software (Open Source) movement, much is made of the distinction between "free as in beer" and "free as in freedom." "Free software" means making your source available so that others can modify and improve it: free as in freedom.

To bridge the gap, some Danes have now posted an "Open Source Beer" recipe.

A couple of weeks ago, Kevin Fenzi, Jeremy Hinegardner, and I made our own version. (We would have made theirs, but the Boulder Beer Store didn't have all the ingredients. We, uh, substituted liberally.)

Details can be found on Kevin's blog.

Tuesday, we find out whether it worked.
