I have uploaded the code to GitHub, Wiki is online, Bug Tracker is online. I am halfway with the blog post to go with the release. It will be posted tomorrow!

On eliminating the Arduino: in my experience, the rasp isn't very stable. When the temperature control runs on the Arduino, it will always keep on running and you are not risking ruining your beer when the rasp crashes. More details tomorrow in the blog post!

I absolutely stoked that you've released the project. And now that you've mentioned your fermentation density sensor you've got me dreaming up closed system ways to pull that off. Hmmmm... I'm sure you'll beat me to the punch :-) Good work, you're a credit to the hobby.

Strong 4 year bump.

Lol i dont deserve any credit, Elkoe and those that put the time into the software deserve all the credit.
All i did was document a way of building it cheap to evangelize using it over the then(and still now sort of) standard STC1000 build everyone was doing.

Yeh, right......! You only posted a sketch and we just copied it - That's IT!
Oh, I just remembered....You helped gazillions of us, when we could not get the RPi cooking or screwed something up (like me)!
And, for me, you got me all excited about programming again and playing with Arduinol's for "Radio Shack" like projects!
Last time I was great at programming, was way back in 1977-1980, with COBOL, RPG, FORTRAN,BASIC,......And Radio Shack electronics kit wayway back in the 1960's!!!
Now I am having fun all over again, drinking beer this time while "programming", and loving every minute of FuzzeWuzze, getting me back in the Groove again!
Thanks soooo much!
