Default First BCS temp controlled fermentation

Using the system example with MLT/Ferm Control that Embedded Control Concepts has in their wiki, I was able to program the BCS yesterday for my fermentation fridge.

It has been running nicely now with a 65F setpoint... when I hit "run process" and the fridge started running I must admit I got a little giddy!

Nevertheless, I have an Irish Red in the chamber fermenting away nicely for the past 12 hours! My first fully temp controlled ferment (my real wort starter was fermented at 65F too) and I look forward to many more, and much more use of the BCS!

Just thought I would share!

Slap it down or you'll go blind!

Good luck and happy brewing!

This is pretty awesome. Good work. Maybe one day I can educate myself on how to automate with BCS. Consider me green with envy.
