The transformation of water in to wine is considered the first miracle performed by Jesus according to the Gospel of St John. The story goes that Jesus was at a wedding in Cana when they ran out of wine. He ordered some servants to fill containers with water and presented it to the chief waiter who declared that it was the best wine of the evening and that the bridegroom had broken the tradition of serving the best wine first.
While not as speedy as Jesus, a new machine can turn water to wine. Of course it needs a few other ingredients; grape concentrate, yeast and some finishing powder. The “Miracle Machine” controls the fermentation using
an array of electrical sensorts, transducers, heaters and pumps
For the gadget-minded, the machine is connected to an Arduino microcontroller and, of course, has an accompanying app to track the fermentation.
It will also allow you to choose the perfect wine for your taste buds, informing you which ingredients you should buy to create the perfect drink. The estimated cost of producing wine is $2 per bottle.
Of course, no matter how fast it turns water in to wine, you’ll have to wait for Lent to finish before you can enjoy any of it.
