A good use for all that heat

As good environmentalists, we’re of course properly distressed by all the energy that computers waste. While it’s nice that my server-room closet has been helping to keep the apartment a bit warmer this winter, I still feel vague pangs of over-active liberal guilt. What is one to do with a closet that is a consistent 75 degrees…?

Beer.

That’s right, folks, the excess power of BillMonk is going into keeping my home-brew at a nice even temperature (this time around just a simple brown ale). While 75 degrees is a bit high for ale yeast, they seem to be happy so far – the happy bubbling of fermentation provides music to code by.

The Monk would be pleased.
