I'm not sure if anyone has done this before (or had the need/nerdyness).
I had a bit of an incident last night with the lid of my fermenter blowing off with 10 mins left in the Superbowl.
I brewed Sunday morning and noticed an unusually strong fermentation taking place, but it wasn't until late that I needed to rig up a blowoff. I left the blowoff on all day Monday, but when I returned home I noticed that it had slowed to 6-10 bubbles per minute. Seeing as how I jerry-rigged the blowoff with duct tape, some tubing and a grolsh bottle filled with cheap vodka I decided to replace the airlock and just "keep an eye on it." Now comes the interesting part. How do I monitor it from work? Why the Fermentation-Cam
Now in the event of another fermentor explosion I can call someone (or leave work early
And yes I know the webpage isn't pretty. The cam I had floating around wasn't compatible with linux so I had to resort to windows and the software I found doesn't allow you to alter the page for a live stream.
