Default Raspberry Pi Brewery Timer???

Has anyone seen a Brewery Timer that will run on Raspberry Pi? I'm currently using this one http://www.hoppedale.com/brewerytimer, however it obviously won't run on the Raspberry Pi...

Default Raspberry Pi Brewery Timer???

I've seen folks use it to control a smoker. It turns a stoker fan on/off based on a pit temp thermometer. It can surely control a brewery.

I'm not looking for something to control my brewery, I merely want to run a timer on my LED display in my garage where I brew. The LED display is connected to a Raspberry Pi.

I think you should write it.

All it needs is a simple python script to run in the background.

I haven't messed around with the RPI yet but I've been interested in it to use in conjunction with an arduino for a bit of a fancy brewing setup. Speaking of which I personally think an arduino would be a better option for what you are looking for.

If I find anything I'll let you know. Thats the best I can do for now.

I wouldn't even know where to start coding it. The reason I went with the RPi was in anticipation of this project getting finished: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/init...lution-456809/

I understand. Its a pain in the butt. Maybe this can help lead you in a direction though. I think its more than you need but it could help.
