Priest turns washing machine into brew kettle.

A German priest has found a way to brew beer in his washing machine, Ananova reports. Michael Fey, 45, of Duisburg, Germany built a computer interface into the washing machine to let it run an automatic brewing program. It consists of turning and heating, but no spinning, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung reports.

The priest brews 30 liters every six weeks, the legal limit for home brewing, and says he was inspired by the tradition of monks who brewed beer in a cauldron over a fire.

To imitate this technique, he opted for a toploader washing machine. Before he started brewing, he ran it about 20 times to remove any soap residue. Note: The priest brews in accordance with the Reinheitsgebot.
