    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Bummer. Do I need to take apart all of my wiring, disconnect the alamode, etc and start as if I were going at it for the first time? Or can I leave everything assembled?

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    This is what my SD card looks like from my windows PC. Is there anything salvageable here? Or am I starting from scratch?

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Everything was working perfectly when I last used R.Pints about 2 months ago. Today I turned it on and it booting gets stuck here: Any tips?

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    I finally got something! It turns out that 2 of the 3 meters that I got don't work, but 1 of them does! That's enough to show me that I'm not crazy... It only registered 5 oz on a 14 oz pour, but that's another battle for another day. Thanks so much for the help guys. Seriously.

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Thanks so much for the script and helping me figure this out. D13 did blink (3 fast, 1 slow) while I was uploading RaspberryPints.ino to alamode, but there were no blinks further on down the road in relation to any pour attempts. So where do I go from here? I need to check each connection...

    I switched it to 3, then saw your edit and tried it on 7. Here are the steps I took and the results: shutdown pi unplug power switch yellow wire to pin 7 plugin power $ps aux | grep flow pi 2239 0.1 1.0 11524 4784 ? S 17:02 0:00 /usr/bin/python /var/www/python/flow_monitor.py pi 3171...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    I started out with all 3 of my meters hooked up through a project board to distribute the ground (red on the ribbon wire) and VIN. I've since simplified in order to trouble shoot and just hooked up 1 flow directly to the board. Day_trippr: Can you please elaborate on one of your earlier...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    I have been testing with water - when I asked if there was a way to test the flow meters, I was hoping for a way to check them independent of the RPi. Meters are facing the right way. I also learned the hard way about uploading while python was running. I've tried several different pins...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Following the (flow monitor troubleshooting) directions below, I get no update via chromium nor any meter data posted to the terminal window while running flow_monitor.py These instructions say that my AlaMode is not talking to the RPi. What exactly does that mean and how do I fix it? Made...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    SOLVED My (flow meter) install went smoothly up until this point, but now I am stuck. I have setup my Pi with a static address of 192.168.2.10 Within my router setup, 192.168.2.10 shows up as an (unknown) connected device. I can successfully ping this IP from both my desktop and the Pi...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    I'm ready to buy the last piece I need before starting assembly. As I only have 3 taps, I have my heart set on a 13" screen in landscape mode. I think I found the perfect screen, but it's native resolution is listed as 1366x768. I see that the RPiconfig has a setting for hdmi_mode=39...

    [Initial Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    As I only have 3 taps, I want to set my system up exactly as you have. I've spent days looking for the perfect 1280x720 monitor and have come up empty. Any tips?

    Where to get Beer Gas in Greenville?

    Did you ever find a place to swap out an a 20# cylinder for a beergas tank? I live in Anderson and I'm going crazy trying to find the stuff.

    Is my RIMS temp probe too short?

    Can you take a picture of the RIMS tube layout. I had a similar problem (off by 30 degrees) until I switched the location of the probe and the wort return fitting to change the direction of the flow.

    Troubleshooting P-J's Auberin-wiring1-SYL-2352-basic5-RIMS diagram

    Solved - I mislabeled the outputs for the heating element and the pump. Obviously the element was drawing more than 5 amps. Sorry to waste your time and thanks again for the help! Russ

    Troubleshooting P-J's Auberin-wiring1-SYL-2352-basic5-RIMS diagram

    Thanks for chiming in P-J. The switch is the SW1. I have swapped it out with another with the same result. The switch does not light up regardless of whether the pump is plugged in or not. The pump has been tested in a standard outlet and works fine. I have been using fast acting...

    Troubleshooting P-J's Auberin-wiring1-SYL-2352-basic5-RIMS diagram

    Hello all, I finally got around to testing this build and am having the following problems that I just can't figure out: fuse -5A regularly blows (the fuse feeding the pump switch) LED for pump never comes on pump never comes on Other notes: The fuse doesn't always blow pump doesn't come on...

    Homebrew For Heroes fund raising

    Is the only way to help by buying a shirt? I'd rather donate homebrew. So the question is, is this program specific to your locality, or do you have plans to put homebrewers in contact with local soldiers so that we can donate directly?

    Auber SYL 2352 Setup

    I am in the middle of a similar build that also uses the Auber SYL-2352 and can't find a good list of settings either. This is what I have gathered from other threads, but I have the feeling that this isn't a complete list: Run "autotune" using water that is within 10 degrees of your expected...
