    Tilt hydrometer not connecting in fermenter

    Just received a new tilt for my birthday - I wouldn't have bought this for myself even though I thought it looked quite cool! So I was pretty please to give it a whirl - I sanitised and calibrated it with no issues and connected the cloud logging URL for brewfather. However When I have dropped...

    Fermentrack and Tilt integration

    I have my fermentrack setup with a brewpi and tilt hydrometer. What I can't seem to figure out is how to recalibrate the tilt or disassociate the tilt with the brewpi in fermentrack. Any ideas?

    Fermentation Pressure Monitors, what are they good for?

    I'm trying to understand my picoFerms... so far I only get two pieces of information from them: Is the yeast too warm or too cool? There is 'some pressure', so fermentation has started. I'd be curious what others can read from a picoFerm chart? Is there a way to guesstimate Specific Gravity...

    When to Declare Fermentation Done When Using Tilt

    I know the commonly shared advice is to take gravity readings when you think fermentation is done, and when you get 3 days of the same gravity reading, it's done and you can cold crash, keg, whatever. But this is advice based on taking a gravity sample once a day. With the Tilt, you obviously...

    Perfect Pairing- Tilt Bluetooth Hydrometer + Inkbird WiFi Temperature Controller

    I've been using Tilts for a while now and am absolutely sold on them. I use them specifically to keep track of fermentation progress to decide when to adjust the fermentor temperature. When I saw that Inkbird came out with an ITC-308 WiFi controller, I had to check it out. And as expected, it...

    Tilt Hydrometer readings.

    I recently acquired a Tilt hydrometer. I have had a few things happen and am wondering if anyone else has experienced them. 1. I measured the OG of a Helles Lager with a refractometer at room temp and it was 1.041. After placing the calibrated Tilt in the fermenter, it was reading 1.037. I did...

    I am pleased to announce the release of TiltBridge - a hardware Tilt Hydrometer-to-WiFi bridge. TiltBridge is a single component ESP32-based hardware solution for bridging the gap between your Tilt Hydrometer's bluetooth signal and a number of cloud logging options. It is designed to be able to...

    Tilt Bridge

    I am trying to locate the BOM, Instructions, and any documentation for the Tilt Bridge Device. I already have a Pi running Fermentrack (super easy to setup and seems great!) but I have a fermenter that is sometimes in the basement and I would still like to "plug the Tilt data into" my...

    Faulty Readings?

    I've been using Tilt to log my SG and temperature for the last 6 days of my brew and Its been working amazingly well except for a few spots with notes over them Blue is Sg and Red is Temp. There are two blue peaks that I have no idea what happened with. Do any of you have any ideas of what is...

    Plaato Digital Airlock Hands on Review

    So I got a couple Plaato digital airlocks from Plaato a couple months back to do a hands-on trial/review. I did a bit of research on the science behind what they're doing and on a chemistry basis, it's solid. I ran into a number of application constraints for my fermentation equipment. If...

    Recent Experiments Fermenting With and Without a Starter

    I recently did a hands-on review of a stir plate and Erlenmeyer flask from MoreBeer. As part of that process, I brewed a number of batches to test out the benefits/effects of using a starter. My first two batches showed little to no effect of the starter on either fermentation parameters or...

    Where do You Find Notable Difference with Oxygenation Stones?

    I've been trying out some oxygenation stones (both 0.5 micron + O2 tank, and aquarium pump + 2 micron stone) lately. My standing process is I pass the wort through a strainer as I transfer from kettle to fermentor and let that aerate/splash. I did two trials where I split my wort into 3...

    Immposible OG?

    So I am using my Tilt as the hydrometer, I was reading 1.056 with apple juice, concentrate, pectal, acid blend, and yeast nutrients. then right before pitching I aerated everything with a vigorous stir pitched the yeast, closed the lid and my OG then became 0.987. Did I just screw my Tilt up...

    Tilt Bluetooth Hydrometer Detailed Review

    I just finished my hands-on review of the Tilt Bluetooth Hydrometer. This wireless baby drops into your fermentor and then broadcasts Specific Gravity and temperature readings over Bluetooth to an App running on your smartphone or a tablet. I tried this out just from the "cool tech"...

    Getting started in 2018

    I was given a Tilt Hydrometer for Christmas and it got me excited about the BrewPi and logging temp & SG during fermentation. I picked up a RPI and Arduino and started playing around. But I'm finding that much of the build info is two plus years old and the Pi no longer supports Arduino. I've...
