Computer Brewing
 
Hey Guys-

I'm kind of new to brewing and I've seen a few guys set up with a laptop to show there temperatures. I see they have there probe in the kettles. What do I need to do to get that? Is it a program? Thanks

There are many ways of doing this on both a low and high budget. Most of them boil down to the use of a micro-controller to handle the sensors and then interface it with a computer (either with proprietary software or something you write yourself). The BCS (posted above) seems to be a very easy to use system and they have done most of the hard work for you.

A common "low budget" system might use an Arduino micro-controller (www.arduino.cc) which is very much a DIY sort of project.

If you are comfortable with electronics and programming then this is usually fairly straight-forward.

Check out my build using Arduino UNO...Costed me less than $1000 for the entire setup.

I posted my Microcontroller based Temperature Logger on my blog at http://otakubrewing.com/2012/02/23/t...ogger-project/

Hopefully it'll be helpful to you.

You can also find the source code for the project out at http://diybrewerytemplogger.codeplex.com/

Hopefully it'll be helpful to you.
