    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Oh man, I'm so jealous you can have Bells Two Hearted on tap. One of my favorite beers I can't get here in NorCal.

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Which version are you using? I'm having to restart the flowmon services pretty often. Flowmon is stopping randomly for me. It resolves if I go to the management portal and restart flowmon services. It doesn't stay restarted too long.

    Reviving a dead thread. Has no one in the last 4 years come up with a recipe? OP, what did you use. I'd like to brew this...

    You won't be disappointed in the meter. I got a couple more meters with similar results. I don't know which version you are planning to install. If you use the RandR+ version it takes advantage of MySQL. He has analytics on the management portal that give you pour history, beer statistics...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Welcome, I'd go ahead and load the sample data and configure it for 6 taps. You don't need flow sensors to display information on each tap and it doesn't affect anything. You also need flow meter support if you want to add temp sensor. I've done some research on the newer versions of the...

    Did you try setting up 8 taps and see if it numbers properly? If so, you can set up a 'blank' tap in that position.

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    You can edit out the tap numbers I put in at the bottom of Index.php. You will see where I set up a table with them. Just put a # in front of lines 256-265. Yours looks a bit wonky, did you happen to select vertical in the config screen? If not, then set up 8 taps with the last one being...

    You set up the screen saver in the preference tab on the linux home screen. So go to preferences > screensaver > xscreensaver. Mine worked immediately. You did install xscreensaver, right?

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    You aren't wrong. When I saw your power post I bought an Uno power supply. It wasn't a big thing for me, since RandR+ said it would all get decremented from my kegs anyway. I then looked at my logs tonight since I started using the power supply and no more split pours. Just found out...

    Yeah, I said that I thought it was fine to power the Uno with the USB, while simultaneously complaining I was getting weird double pours reported on my taps. Guess what solved that problem? At least for our application, the Uno needs the external power supply.

    Dude I feel your pain on 8 taps. Check out what RandR+ did to help me get 8 taps on one screen. I modified it to get the temp and last pour too. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/version-2-release-raspberrypints-digital-taplist-solution.487694/page-138#post-8776711 I have 4 extra...

    There doesn't seem to be any less expensive SwissFlow meters out there. Check out my post on some cheaper meters ($10) that seem to have upped the pulse count per gallon...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Thanks for this info day_trippr, I'm making some progress. I got the python script working to play mp3 sounds you used in your example. I used the echo routines skill to respond with my text input in her voice. The Copper Cat Brewery Band stage mike recorded it and convert it to an mp3...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    On another note. I have an Amazon Echo Show next to my taps. I'm going to try to use bluetooth to set it up as a speaker. I thought I'd try to capture some wave files from Alexa and randomly play them to it. It would be funny to have Alexa make snide comments to my friends when they...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Right? I think pulse counts in the 20K range indicate they might be able to perform better than earlier models. The exact ones I got are not available and I have those others on the way. However, it looks like they are coming straight from China. I'll be wiping them down with disinfectant...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Ok, maybe it isn't that great. I just did another 1 Gal pour and got 132 oz. If you want to go less expensive, I think these flow meters that appear to have a 20k plus pulse per gallon aren't too bad for the money. Accuracy around 4oz per gallon if that is in your tolerance range.

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    OK, well let's see if this will satisfy you. I don't know why you would want to call me out for 'shenanigans' when I have no motivation to mislead this forum when you and others have helped me so much. So I have a one gallon container. As I have previously stated, I get multiple pour...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Cool, I'm surprised as you are. So, give me a test you would like to see to prove it is reproducible. I'll post screen shots. I'm as skeptical as you are, since I'm surprised too. Operating conditions? Well for starts the pulse count is incredibly high, I don't know why. Meter specs...

    [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

    Also, thanks to everyone here that helped me get my RPints taplist working. I 'm really happy with it and it displays current temp and last pour. RandR+ helped so much by formatting it into two columns for my 8 taps. His expertise was way beyond my capabilities. It looks great in the...
