    Help in finding the right LP propane regulator

    Hello all, I'm trying to slowly finish my build, currently figthing with the gas/regulator/valve/burner chain. The Honeywel valve (both VR8304M and VR8200A2132) doesn't open and allow the gas to reach the banjo burner BG14 (converted to LP). Also the valves have been LP converted...

    BrewTroller alive in Kickstarter

    As a BrewTroller lover, I was quite worried a bit ago to see it going out of business. Adam (thanks a lot!) decided to give a new life to BT, building a new website for the wide community and challenging a Kickstarter campaign to enter again in business. I wish him a huge success!!! :mug...

    Fermentation Chamber for 26G ss conical fermenter

    Last Christmas my wife gave me a 26G ss conical fermenter as a gift. From the very first day I had in mind to build a fermentation chamber for it. Here, northern Italy, temperature goes low in winter and high in summer. Perfect! :mad: The place where I should brew is a garage, fully devoted...

    3 Burner Automated Control Panel

    Hi, as for the automation of your brewing process, did you see something close to your needs? Brewtroller and BCS are the easier choice, different routes concerning Arduino, Raspberry PI or other solutions are available. These are a couple of images for the Brewtroller approach, very well...

    brewery finished !

    Very nice build! One little suggestion could be to rotate 90° the pump, since it should work better with the input flow downside and the output flow upper. For your leaks, I'd change the tee, buying another one - maybe another brand/model - and see if it should fix the related leak. Not so...

    My insane 25 Gal, 100 Percent Hard Plumbed Tri-Clover, Automated Tippy Build

    Great proceedings I see, as always! I was asking you too about the touchscreen mounting choice you've made, nice and simple solution you've found! What about the ambient light sensor? Did you choose to set the touchscreen always at full backlight power? Also, is the RPI finally working well...

    Detachable control panel help

    It should work without problems, it's just matter of sending OPEN-CLOSE signals through it.

    Detachable control panel help

    you have several different connectors types to choose from. The main difference is basically from the number of wires you need to connect with each connector and the availability of a wall mount connector, to be placed on your cp. Just some examples: M12 female panel mount M12 3-pin male...

    My insane 25 Gal, 100 Percent Hard Plumbed Tri-Clover, Automated Tippy Build

    Great minds think alike, dude! The next time you are going to flight to Europe, make a trip northern Italy to help me with the brewstand build! :mug:

    All right, I'm sure this is so clever! :D If of any help, I'm slowly following the same approach https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f235/new-control-panel-brewtroller-raspberry-pi-inside-372951/

    PLC - Touchscreen Control Panel (TEB Based)

    Nice advanced build! Which touchscreen are you going to embed in your cp and how will you manage to mount it on the front panel?

    Did you find this I think...

    My insane 25 Gal, 100 Percent Hard Plumbed Tri-Clover, Automated Tippy Build

    Awesome build! I love the hard plumbing, starting to go soon I hope. Just to know, which sw are you going to play on the rip? Seen in your touchscreen (chalkboard?) the live.brewtroller web page and in your post #441 it seems to me you have the open troller dx1 on the left of the image. So...

    New to automation, how to set up a completely electric automated system?

    Hello, for your route the brewtroller, imho, would be quite easy to build. With the Opentroller DX1 you can directly drive the 12V valves, without relays. Just as an example, take a look at this image Add the 2 pumps you need, connected to the 2 relays pcb on the top left and you're done...

    Help with Arduino and Raspbeery Pi connection

    I'm not aware on your current build setup, so these are just my two cents... 1. Setting up a web server on RPI is just matter of seconds, I'd suggest you to go with a light web server, such as lighttpd. Here is an easy example to follow. You can then access it with your device, whatever it is...

    New control panel: brewtroller and raspberry pi inside

    @Adeering and Kickflip: I've not cut the front panel yet, but I'll do it making some holes for bolts. If you see my design, there are holes in the new front panel just for that. @ReuFroman: Raspberry PI or Beagleboard would have been the same, I'm sure also that nice object would well do its...

    New control panel: brewtroller and raspberry pi inside

    @Adeering The cost for the material + cut with Ponoko here in Italy was around Euros 20,00, convert it in USD and you should have a comparable value for your US cost. If you take a look at my post #13 in this thread, you'll find the .eps files sent to ponoko for the cut. Feel free to use them if...

    New control panel: brewtroller and raspberry pi inside

    Ok, not sure mine is the perfect solution, but had a look at the touchscreen ad thought this approach could be less stressfull for the display. Think about it as a first build so complex for me, so until I find the final stage it could be needed a build-test-correctwhatswrong approach...
