    [email protected], no need of RPI and Arduino.

    There is a button, titled as "System Config", at top-right corner of the page. You should consult your Router provider for DMZ related settings. BPL has nothing to do with those DMZ settings.

    Sorry for late reply, your question is too trivial or too difficult to answer. The settings in in "System" or "Config" page. I don't know why you can't find it. The default settings in **code** is in file config.h. BPL is open sourced, and you can change as you want.

    No. If the gravity data is calculated by iSpindel, no way you can change it. ... Therefore, BPL can calculate the iSpindel and even derive the formula based on the data input.

    It might be an issue of settings. After v3.0, all settings are merged into one file for optimization. When you upgraded from v2.x to v3.0+, all settings were gone. Just go through all settings again.

    One BrewPiLess can't control TWO fermenters. None of the BrewPi 0.2.x variants can.

    The PID algorithm comes from original BrewPi 0.2.x. You might google for more information. I don’t know much about PID. I would suggest to change other parameters, like heatTargetHigh and coolTargetLow.

    You can use D5, D7, and D8. Use D8 for heating, I would suggest. Or, you can try ESP32. It has more PINs available.

    Best way to measure total emitted weight of fermentation CO2?

    iSpindel works really well for me. I can see the drop of gravity usually before 12 hours after pitch, when usually no bubble shows at that time. The slow down of gravity change speed is so obvious that it can be recognized in around 4 hours.

    kind of mysterious to me, bu the change of underlying WiFi implementation maybe has caused some issues, which I have not solved all of them. The last one is losing WiFi network after a week or so. I just push an update which will store WiFi credentials. (I relied on the underlying WiFi...

    "Smart" fermentation controller idea

    I don't really understand how it works. In my experience, the temperature of environment dominates the cooling frequency. Let's say, setting the temperature 68F, my fridge runs frequently when it is 90+F, and it merely runs when it is 65F or under. IMO, gravity checking is the way to go...

    It took me a while to get ADS1115 module for verifying and fine-tuning. The major updates: 1. Pressure chart and pressure log 1.1 ADS1115 ADC sensor support ADS1115 is a better ADC, especially when controlling pressure is needed. 2. ESP32 support The only advantages are faster response and...

    iSpindle - DIY Electronic Hydrometer

    First of all, check if your iSpindel does wake up or not by watching the LED on D1 mini board. You could set the report period to a shorter time.

    The water amount displayed is "INFUSE_AMOUNT" in MASH_STEP: INFUSE_AMOUNT Conditional Volume (liters) The volume of water in liters to infuse in this step. Required only for infusion steps, though one may also add water for temperature mash steps. One should not have an infusion amount for...

    It is said that ESP8266 is 5v tolerant. I have a BrewPiLess setup that has 5v and 3.3v mixed connections like yours. It has run for over 3 years. It's not a good practice, but you should be fine. I don't have much knowledge about SSR, you might need to find out the specification of yours and try...

    Weak WiFi signal does cause problems because the POWER to transmit data is higher, and the retransmitting results higher loading of the system. I can't look at this, because the POWER and the wiring is done by you, and we don't have access to the WiFi module or even the task scheduler. Some...

    I took the minimum values from Open AirBir. It seems to work for most of the people. There are people who use stirrers instead of PUMPs and need to set the values in seconds, there is an option for it.

    I don't think hd44780 type LCD will break easily, but OLED LCD seems like easier to break. If you install buttons on D3 and/or D4, you can wake up the LCD by pressing one of it. Otherwise, you might need to set "LCD auto off" time to 0(zero) to turn on it, and later set it to some other values...

    "h". The response should include a list of devices, like {"i":0,"t":1,"c":1,.....,"a":"28BE07Dxxxxxxxx","j":0.00} ... "i" is device index, and "j" is the calibration value.
