    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I don't think I've ever messed with this setting, but mine says 0.898. Either way, it's just strange that it works when it wants to, and doesn't at other times. The only settings I've changed were changing it to Fahrenheit from Celsius, then setting the Fridge minimum temp to 34 and the max to...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I just got home from work, and apparently my BrewPi system decided to start working. I didn't make any changes whatsoever. The only difference that I can think of, is that the outside temp was in the high 50's yesterday and today it's 90 degrees. The fridge is in my garage though, and the...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I think someone asked about this but I forgot to mention it...I'm using a refrigerator and the small heater that Fuzze and others recommended. I have the fridge temp probe hanging from the ceiling and the beer temp probe in a thermowell which goes directly into the carboy / beer. I might try...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Thanks batty. This is happening with Iceweasel on the Debian machine itself. I'll try Chrome and see what happens. If it's just a browser glitch and not actually affecting anything, I can live with it. I'm starting to think everyone is correct when they said it's a algorithm issue that I...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Thanks for the reply. This happens from the Debian machine itself using the Iceweasel browser. I do use a Mac and Safari to access it remotely, and the script stopping issue does happen remotely, but it also happens on the machine itself. I think I probably did "break" something with the...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Thanks for the reply. The script not running issue happens from the Debian machine itself, not just from the browser on my remote computer. The browser I'm using on the Debian machine is Iceweasel. Even though it cuts in and out, it still seems to be working...so I'm not too terribly worried...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I'm having some strange issues that hopefully someone can help me out with. First of all, my script stops running about every 20 seconds, then quickly goes back to normal. I'm not sure if the script is actually stopping, but the GUI / Browser thinks it is. It gives me the "Script Not...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Hello everyone! I took an unintentional vacation from brewing for about 6 months. Life got busy, blah, blah, blah. I had only brewed one batch of beer with the BrewPi setup before the break and it went flawlessly. First brew back, it kept the beer at the perfect temp for the first two weeks...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    So, I've been so busy at work for the past several weeks that I couldn't get motivated to brew for a long time, but I finally brewed my first batch using my BrewPi setup and everything is going great. Thanks again to everyone who helped me get it up and running. Quick question. I use an...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I got everything wired up this morning and everything is working! I'm fermenting a nice carboy full of water as we speak. Questions... 1. The refrigerator I'm using is kind of a clunker. The coldest it was able to get while testing it out was about 45 degrees. This was before I hooked it...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    It was! I had several issues! Haha. One was the user / rights / the way I originally installed Debian...and you helped me get passed that. Then my Arduino was borked due to a script that I programmed it with using my PC while troubleshooting my temp sensors, which Fuzze helped me correct...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I just ran the automatic script again just to see what would happen. It runs through everything, skips the stuff that is already there but doesn't throw any real errors except for these. **********Running fixPermissions.sh from the script repo. ***** install.sh: 274: [: -a: unexpeced operator...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    It's in /home/brewpi/utils. Maybe I'm missing something simple. During a fresh install of Debian I create a user named stewart. After the install I then create a user named pi and add it to the sudoers list. Login is pi and run the auto script. It failed while trying to create users and set...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Thanks! I'm researching how to do that now. One other thing worth mentioning is that when I run the fixPermissions.sh script I get an error that says fixPermissions.sh:23: Bad substitution -e

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    I'm just not having much luck on this project unfortunately. I've rebuilt my debian machine from scratch several times, tried a completely different PC / different model of PC, etc, etc. I also tried to create a Pi user and assign it to the sudo users list, take out the rpi-update in the...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Hey Fuzze - day_trippr helped me out with this one, but I do have a few questions for you. 1. Does my temp probe have to reach all the way to the bottom of my thermowell to get an accurate temp? 2. I just read your recent post about the USB cable issue. Are you suggesting that I...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Thanks! I hadn't noticed that the time was off on this new machine. I changed that and was able to get everything. Now though, I can't remember where to download that hex file Rev C for my Uno Arduino board. I remember doing this manually and putting it in my local user's "Documents"...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    So I rebuilt a Debian machine, and even used a completely different netbook just to rule out any funky hardware issues that it might have had. Running into a problem though while trying to copy the brewpi directory and it's contents from github to my brewpi folder on my PC. I get "Error...
