Seems you have to have both sensors installed to work. Which is not ideal in my case since I
only want this to control chilling via:SsBrewtech Conical BME using the FTSS pump and heat pad

Here are my settings...(see pic)I dont know for sure, but i dont think you can only work with 1
sensor. The BrewPi software uses the fridge sensor for its PID loop to keep the beer at

Is there a reason your not using 2 probes? BrewPi really needs Beer + Fridge temp to be
accurate.Also what temp control option are you choosing? Beer Profile, Beer Constant, Fridge

Well, first of all, there is no 'c02 blanket' for beer either. It just doesn't exist. It's true
that in active fermentation, much more c02 is being produced than anything else, so the c02
comes out of...

Agreed. It won't "spoil" in the sense of microorganisms growing, but it will oxidize quickly.I
have all sorts of sizes, like growlers (2 quarts), grolsch bottles (16 ounces), wine bottles
(750 ml) and...

Hey Fuzze:If you uncheck the Active checkbox in the Controllers dialog for any assigned
controllers, this will suppress controller processing.On my unit, it has a more rudimentary
cooling unit with an...

So i put the remaining about 1/2 gallon into another gallon jug with some campden. I was
planning on using...

I use the 200W Lasko Personal heater with its built in fan in my tiny like mayhbe 10cuft stand
up freezer and it works great. That said i dont really feel it puts out 200W of heat...the air

Just set this up for a buddy who is setting up a wine cellar, works great. Would be nice if you
could turn off the controller part entirely though, he has some fancy AC unit that controls his

Profiles work differently than Constants. You can think of Profiles as the Host PC sending
continuous "Constant" updates to the Arduino behind the scenes. Which is why you flatlined when
the power wen...
