New Beer can Develop Film

how much of this beer do you need to develop the super 8 film? And can one still consume it after it's been "used" for developing the film?

I have all sorts of questions that need to be answered.

I know I wouldn’t be drinking it after the addition of vitamin C powder during processing... :biggrin:

Very cool idea and process but I’m wildly conflicted about wasting beer that could be put to better uses... :drinks:

I’d like to know the history of this idea. There was an episode of Mythbusters where they used house hold liquids to develop film. Some one must have thought “can I use beer for this?” when exposed to similar facts.

See, there’s that conflict again, just use proper developer and drinks the sixth beer...

That just indicates that you’re drinking the wrong kinds of beer... ;)
Yes, but it's like the concept of the pocket survival kit in the wilderness: what WILL you have on you when the unexpected happens?

… the correct answer is beer :D
