I've spliced together this week's link of the moment three times now.

And killed my response in the process....

...and it appears that it's gone for good, so I'll type more...

I love these little boards. You could easily make a multi-stage lagerator controller that would provide real-time feedback and monitoring. The kegerator controller seems like it's a bit of a waste, given the Arduino's capabilities, but hey, whatever floats your boat!

For the price and ease of use, you can't beat a Ranco, but the Arduino sure is fun to tinker with.

Perhaps the Arduino board can be used to intercept your post and re-direct it.

I hit the first link and started reading. My head hurts. All this thinking measuring soldering and tinkering... I look at what was built and you know what I think? Wow, that looks like hell. the wires are all over the place. no order to them. Wrap them babbies up! THEN take a picture! Sure, electrical current dosn't care but come on! Make that look nice! I'm kinda OCD when it comes to wires. Too many home electronic devise Spaghetti messes has turned me more neurotic than a cat with a patch of fur left that it can't reach!

Man, I love this idea. Just love it. I've been looking for an excuse to buy an Aduino for a while. I have no programming experience (well, other than BASIC when I was a kid,) and this seems like a fantastic way to learn.

I was thinking of doing the same thing for mash temperature control, but I can't find a temperature probe that is liquid immersible for a reasonable price. I know Yuri has a DIY thermister in an epoxy casing, but I wanted something made. I did find the probes for the Love is only $6, but then you don't have any spec sheet to give you the thermistor's response curve. So frustrating.
