DIY Cranberry Wine

Henri Rantanen 0

Finland is known for its alcoholism. I decided to celebrate that fact by making traditional Finnish drink "Vappukilju", translating roughly as "strong home-made brew for first of May".

Kilju is illegal to make here but adding some sort of fruit makes it technically wine and okay. So, with a little help from my friend, we made some "cranberry wine" with a little twist.

Quest for cheap booze

The mission was to make something that tastes good, is relatively cheap, ferments fast and most important - is strong!

How radiation affects digital camera

I recently visited the Chernobyl exclusion zone the pictures of the damaged reactor of the power plant were slightly faded, I suspected it was due to the background radiation.

I figured it was easy enough to test how radiation affects digital CMOS-sensors so I irradiated my Nikon to see what kind of effects would I get.
