    Weird topic for ya - Digital Monitoring

    I am sure this is nothing new with the folks that frequent here... I have experimented around with Arduino in the past quite a bit. Anyone ever build a fermentation monitor using one (Or Pi)? They have O2 sensors, CO2 sensors, and ethanol sensors. Add that to a graphical display, and you could...

    muh's Fermentrack\BrewPi Remix Build

    Decided to convert the old fermentation deep freeze from STC-1000 to a IoT web enabled thing. I am using the BrewPi Remix firmware for the arduino and Fermentrack on the front-end for the pi. Most of the parts were leftovers from an old project, but I will still link what I used. Parts: 1 -...

    muh's BruControl Build

    So, I started a PLC build way back when ('11-'12). The project fizzled out due to money, kids, life, etc... In the mean time, I worked several automated builds surrounding Raspberry Pi, Python, and QT5. reef-pi and a homebrew saltwater mixing station for Aquarium use (or RODI brew water). I...

    ArdBir doubt

    Hi guys, i'm doing an ArdBir project, and it's all done, but when it comes to show the messages on the LCD, I can't see all the stuff that it was supposed to show. Anyone had this problem while doing it? I already changed the Arduino code to 20x4 LCD, but it looks like a bug or something.

    Arduino Bluetooth eBIAB controller with Windows 10 App

    Hey Folks, I thought I'd share this with everyone as I think it would be useful to others out there that like to tinker. I had posted a long time ago about my eBIAB setup here: I have gone a few...

    New York BrewPi, Heater & Fridge (Arduino based) Saratoga Springs, NY

    Built a DIY Glycol chiller and no longer require my BrewPi or supporting fermentation chamber parts. BrewPi will keep your fermentation temperature in a tolerance of a tenth of a degree. You can also set it and forget it. Pre-program your entire fermentation! This is an excellent way to...

    Temp Control via Z-Wave

    Looking for a way to simplify the BrewPiLess / Tilt builds and use my smart home outlets to actually control power to the pump in my water bath. My preferred setup would looks something like this: Tilt Hydrometer <> BLE <> RPi <> ZWave <> HUB <> Outlet > Pump Brewfather or Fermentrack would...

    What's next for SW-controlled Brewing/Fermentation?

    Long-time lurker first-time poster, with a burning question for my fellow brew geeks: Is it time to collectively re-think our approach to software in the Brewery? I can hear the responses already "What a ridiculously vague question!" "What the hell are you on about?" "Can you help me get my...

    Electric/Automated Brewery Dilemma

    Hi All, I have been scouring this forum as well as others trying to figure out what I want for a brewery. Many here have been through many iterations of their breweries. I want to avoid that for the most part as I tend to do that with every hobby (and started to do with this) and my wife gets...

    New 27 Gal MoreBeer Conical & Arduino Based Temp Controller

    Greetings folks, I have not posted on any brewing forums for years and years but I’ve got a new project that I figure some people may be interested in. Background: I bought two MoreBeer 12 gal fermenters back in 2008. I then made an AC unit glycol chiller for them based on “Backyard...

    Avantco IC3500 Induction Burner Hacked by an Arduino

    I have been able to get the Avantco IC3500 Induction Burner working with an Arduino using a PID loop! Let me first give credit to the folks over at Openschemes for initiating this hack: Without them I wouldn’t...

    Boil Control for Electric Brewing

    I just switched my homebrew setup from propane to electric (5500 W element in BK and HLT). I previously used an Arduino to control the propane burners for my HLT and BK (combo of 5V relays, 120:24V furnace TX, and furnace gas valve) I am reusing the Arduino because it will keep most of my...
