A guy in my homebrew club is starting up a business called "Ohm Brew"

His first product is still in development and I am actually lucky enough to be a beta tester. It is a single stage (beta version) programmable fermentation controller. It can be set up to do any fermentation profile you desire. Two stage control is planned for the production model.

I should be getting it delivered any day...

Here is a link to his Blog.

I am in no way affiliated with this startup other than having just purchased a Beta unit and giving him my honest feedback for development of the production model.

Love the name.... Any idea what the target pricing is going to be for a dual-stage controller?

Nope... It wouldn't be right for me to talk $$$ here in this forum. It's not my business. However, the full production model will be competitively priced, I'm sure...
Feel free to visit his blog and contact him through that.

Figured I'd search before adding a new post. A friend of mine posted this today on another forum I'm on. Looks like he's got a Kickstarter going for this now. My friend is not a beta tester but said the feedback he's heard so far has been positive.

I was the last one in on the early bird. It is good to hear solid reports. ETA of November, so it will be awhile before posting hands on updates.

LOL..you cost(ed) me 20 bucks!!! I love this idea. I hope November is a conservative estimate, rather than an ambitious one...but this is a great idea and specifically I'll hook this up to a fridge dedicated to Lagering!

I feel your pain. I always am late to the party on KS. First Kickstarter that I got in early enough for an early bird and it was pure luck after reading a 2+ month old thread on AHA and searching KS.

Hopefully, Caleb keeps everyone in the loop on the production schedule and ETA.

Yeah, Caleb is pretty STOKED!
It's really nifty knowing someone... check that... Two people now with successful KickStarter Campaigns. The other guy was Rabit Hole Brewing in Justin, Tx. They funded their tap-room.
