    ESP Brew Engine

    I would like to share my latest project with you, I made a new control system for my brew kettle, as the built-in control had way too much overshoot and was not very practical all together. It is actually a complete software/firmware for an ESP32 controller, which you can connect to your WiFi...
  2. H Keg Level Manager

    Hi everyone, I've been working on a project that you might be interested in. It's a way of monitoring how much beer you have left in your keg, and also displaying this through the display. For now, it contains buttons that you press when you serve a beer, and this updates your keg...

    AI Brewing?

    Hi all, I just asked the OpenAI chatbot to create an all-grain IPA recipe (see screenshots). Not at all perfect, but I’m impressed with what it instantly generated, and at a beta stage. Someday I’m sure AI will produce better recipes, but I’m interested in engaging AI as an assistant with an...

    Software and boil, Ibu question. 2.5 gallon batches

    First of all, hello! I brew 2.5 gal batches. Have always steeped speciality grains in 2-3 quarts as it was suggested to keep ph down and reduce tannins. Ok - then I add that thin wort to boil pot making total of 1.25 gal water for my boil. Then add 8 oz dme to add some sugars for the hops...

    Blichmann TOP-Link Software alternative?

    With the Blichmann Tower-of-Power, you have two choices for control... push buttons as-needed, or use their MS Windows-only TOP-Link software and RS485-to-USB custom cable. For those of us running Linux for our fermentation controllers (brewpi in my case), we're SOL in terms of mashing without...

    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...

    Estimated Mash pH discrepancies (Bru'n Water/EZ Water/BrewCipher)

    Hey all, just wanted to get a few opinions/some feedback. I plugged the same grain bill, water additions, mash and sparge volumes (BrewCipher is slightly different), and starting water profile (100% RO/Distilled) into Bru'n Water/EZ Water/BrewCipher. The estimated Ca/Mg/Na/SO4/Cl concentrations...

    cider and mead software

    Ok, I have searched and comeup pretty much empty handed. Does anyone use any brewing software to keep track of their cider and meads? I would like to use one to keep track of the recipes, and also notes etc. Anyone?
