Had mine a few weeks now but havent had too much time to play with it due to exams. So far I've managed to get an arduino sketch going and a python script to upload temps to cosm.com Next step for me is to work out how to get the arduino to control my beer cooler with a relay and PID function.... And then maybe modify my script so it picks up the Setpoint from another feed on Cosm.com - this would allow me to avoid setting up a web server/page myself, which is a bit beyond me. - Hence why I'm so interested in BrewPi!!

For the relative simplicity of this project, I think LIN would be perfect. Volvo uses it to communicate with every electronic system (down to the rear view mirror) in its newer vehicles. I think it would be sufficient for brewing. Plus it is lower cost than CAN and USB.

Hi

I'm not a big fan of CAN. It seems overly complex for what it does. LIN makes a lot more sense to me.
