    TiltBridge - Tilt-to-WiFi Device for Tilt Hydrometer

    No worries, just re-tried and the normal firmware TFT flashed just fine. Thanks!

    TiltBridge - Tilt-to-WiFi Device for Tilt Hydrometer

    FYI, i think there is a bootloop on the firmware that BrewFlashser is issuing for 1.1.3; when i download/install it i get white screen after successful programming. If I pick the "alpha" 1.1.3 for TFT it works fine. not sure if i'm having a personal issue, but flashing any of the normal...

    TiltBridge - Tilt-to-WiFi Device for Tilt Hydrometer

    Heads up... was just refreshing one of my TFTP models that was on an older 1.0.x and kept getting a white screen after flash succeeded using BrewFlasher to 1.1.3; I tried erase flash and various flash speeds to see if that was the issue... using the "beta d32_pro_tft v1.1.3-alpha" worked. I...

    Deciding on DIY glycol chiller bath size

    Yeah, just size the pump ... not sure on the math for GPH and how many you have. I have 2 fermenters and use a 1600gph pond pump that cost aprox $75 (Amazon.com). I used 1/2" pvc to build the manifold, 4 "outputs" with a 1/2 ball valve and 4 "inputs" after. The 1/2 provides a path for glycol...

    Deciding on DIY glycol chiller bath size

    Do yourself a favor... if you're chilling more than 3-4x fermenters then use one pump and build a glycol distribution. That way you can use one hose, and use solenoids to turn a valve on/off for each fermenter rather than using pumps for each fermenter. it'll be cheaper and easier in the long...

    ferulic acid rest disaster

    same issues with doing RIMS and trying step mashing with ferulic rest. You need to be extra careful about duty cycle on that element... i've burned two batches playing with this so now I just do an infusion step first then step after step 2 start using the element. I mash in extra thick at...

    Is there a way to "automate/control/monitor" a Tilt and an Inkbird WiFi Temp Controller for Fermentation?

    this is possible using tuya... but it requires some extra work. They use the v3 version require not just an ID and IP but also a key. The key is generated every time the device "pairs" with a service. You have to use an SSL/HTTPS proxy on your phone to intercept the key. Once you have the...

    Spike Conical- observations and best practices

    FYI, went with the 2" valve and a reducer on a 3 port lid... it was much easier to coax the hops down. I still had to move the valve open/shut quite a few times but probably worth it if you have not already purchased 1.5" stuff. I used a 1.5" to 2" reducer to get a 2" BF valve. Then used a 2"...

    TiltBridge - Tilt-to-WiFi Device for Tilt Hydrometer

    atlref, make sure you're using the latest firmware on tiltbridge and the latest fermentrack. There were some updates a while back for the tilt pro to support decimals and the payload sent via http caused some grief for me initially setting up. As of the most current releases my tiltbridge...

    Fermentrack: Fermentation monitoring & BrewPi-www Replacement for Raspberry Pi

    Ah, okay... then i'd probably want to see the fermentation log that you started to confirm, but those numbers look right if you consider the yeast is heating just fine. It's probably 18h idle because the kveik yeast are actively keeping the beer temp close to 40degC. The fridge set point...

    Fermentrack: Fermentation monitoring & BrewPi-www Replacement for Raspberry Pi

    Something strange going on here.. are you fermenting a Kviek yeast strain? It says degC, the beer target is 40degC which would be 104degF. The fridge target is 45degC which would be 113degF. Did you program (F)reedom units as target values not seeing the (C) for Celsius? Or is this for a...

    Spike Conical- observations and best practices

    I had not considered using a 1.5->2" or 1.5->3" reducer THEN a 2" or 3" butterfly valve. I'll have to give that a try...

    Spike Conical- observations and best practices

    I'm not really sure why they used 1.5" on all 3x ports... anyone who's tried hop dosing through the 1.5 knows you have to do a dance to get 'em all to drop in. I've have been happier with 2 port lid if one of them was 3".

    Fermentrack: Fermentation monitoring & BrewPi-www Replacement for Raspberry Pi

    I guess maybe reworking that to not be reliant on database entries but a listing of the directory may be a valid feature request in the future. Nothing important enough to work on now though... most people aren't spinning up multiple instances and trying move things between them.

    Fermentrack: Fermentation monitoring & BrewPi-www Replacement for Raspberry Pi

    I may have confused you with the fermentation profiles... I mean the actual log of a fermentation... i see "Device 1 - B1 - Beer Name_full.csv" in the data dir. However; if I copy that from one fermentrak to another it won't show up in "prior logs". My actual situation is I have a beer...
