Right on. What model are they/where did you pick them up?

I got mine from Seeedstudio, but two days after I placed my order, Adafruit started carrying them - Liquid Flow Meter.

The Seeedstudio wiki has a nice FAQ on 'em.

How do you know which Arduino product you need to use? Where do you get accessories for it? etc..etc..
Pick up an Uno, a small breadbaord, some 1K ohm resistors, and momentary switches - all can be had from your local Radio Shack. That's enough to get started with learning the code, blinking some lights, reading button presses, etc.

Once you're comfortable, Adafruit and SparkFun are outstanding places to buy sensors and more advanced goodies from because they do such an outstanding job of documenting their stuff. Limor Fried writes example Arduino code for just about every product Adafruit sells.

Oh, and if you've never done any C coding, you'll probably want to work through a couple tutorials on the Net.

This would be awesome when we start seeing NFC enabled smartphones. Just being able to tap your phone against the keg, then pull a pint and have it checkin for you. The smartphone could handle the untappd api stuff and all the keg would need is the rfid with the beerid on tap.

Cool stuff, thanks for sharing!

The Untappd Kegerator project has been updated to support the new Untappd V4 API. V3 starts shutting down in a few days.

The latest tweak I'm working on is to squeeze another web server page into the Arduino to present an iPad friendly display of the current beers on tap (along with pour counts) and an auto-refreshing scroll of my friend's beer check-ins from around the world. Should have the code ready for primetime in a week or two.

Where's the tablet? I'd think a cheap Android tablet would be a great linked real-time display.
