    Fermentation Progress Question - Brewpi Graph

    Makes me want to start logging ambient temperature outside my fermenter fridges. It ranges from 52-54 in my basement with not much fluctuation unless we have stuff open. Temperature didn't change during those days.

    Fermentation Progress Question - Brewpi Graph

    I have never had this happen before, about 30 batches into my current setup. My normal brew graphs from the past show the fermentation ramping up in the beginning and the fridge kicking on pretty tight and then slowing down and the fridge kicks on less and less. At that point, I ramp up the...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    Thanks garzlok and stbernts. Both ideas worked and I was able to get it reset and communicating with it. Doing a test on it now and hopefully will have second wireless box up and running. Jeff

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    Need help with a second esp8266 controller. I have a working controller and tested the build with that working esp8266 and everything worked perfectly. Upfront I must admit I started this second one about 6 months ago and am not sure where I left off with it. When it boots it runs through the...

    HOWTO - Make a BrewPi Fermentation Controller For Cheap

    Need help with a second esp8266 controller. I have a working controller and tested the build with that esp8266 and everything worked perfectly. When it boots it runs through the test software that checks the sensors and turns on cooling/heating relays and such and completes with Done with...

    Beersmith and Original Gravity Estimates

    This is just a setup/recipe to use as an example to help me understand the numbers that I do not. At 100% it is saying you can get 1.064 pre-boil original gravity with that recipe, the issue is that 100% of the sugar is the following formula: 37*10/6.5 = 57 so that means 100% should be 1.057...

    Beersmith and Original Gravity Estimates

    I probably do not understand something here and I am hoping someone can help me. I do not want to make this over complicated so I will use the most basic recipe with even numbers. 10 lbs of US 2 Row (possible 37 points per lb/per gallon) 5 Gallon Batch No Sparge Full Volume Brew 60 Minute Boil...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    Do you know a reputable place to get a premed one wire from...made 4 myself and all failed so at this point it is most likely me doing something...not sure how the first two from the pack work except for they are soldered directly to the board and not rj11 jacks.

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    Sorry for the posts in a row. So kept working on it and got it to work in serial instead of wifi but now the one wire sensor that said it worked when running the test did not register again. So I loaded the test again and this time it said Parasitic. I ran the test three times before and it...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    When I tried to cycle through it again. I put the test flash back on the ESP8266 device, it immediately loaded and started the test and worked. I then went to put the normal firmware back on the device, i let it Finnish the test as when you plug it back in to do the scan it starts up...then...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    not the same probes, but from the same batch of 10 i bought...i have that Arduino based set up and running in Fermentrack so I can brew. Attempting to get the wifi ESP8266 device up and running so thinking it must have been a mixed batch. My arduino setup has the probes soldered right to the...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    Ok, figured out how to do the test...was simple with a few searches. Everything checked out but it said the sensors are in parasitic mode. I bought a batch of 10 and the first two I used worked with brewpi and were not so guessing the batch is mixed...will make a couple more up and report back.

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    I have an LCD hooked up but not sure how to flash the test firmware if you could talk me through that. I am using RJ11 jacks and one wire sensors that I tested on my Arduino board that works so the wire layout is yellow = data, black = ground, and red = power. On the RJ11 jack I am leaving...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    So I built two boards so I have now tried both, each will not recognize the one wire sensors. I also re-crimped one sensor as a test sensor. I put a wire in the unused slot on the RJ11 and then sanded down the covering to make the other three fit, I then pulled out the extra wire before...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    That did the trick. My old Arduino BrewPi controller immediately worked which is awesome. I am now working on my wifi ESP8266 device, I flashed the device and picked the default flashing when I got to the options of which board type, it is a board from Bigdaddyale and he helped me Solder it...

    Native ESP8266 BrewPi Firmware - WiFi BrewPi, no Arduino needed!

    I am using a pi3. I ran a fresh install of Raspbian that I ran the auto update on off the tutorial right before installing. Not great at this stuff, but had enough knowledge to get Brewpi running on it before. I used a new SD Card so I could default back to brewpi for brewing until I got it...
