I am proud to announce the release of Fermentrack - a web interface for fermentation monitoring and control.
Fermentrack is a free, open source replacement web interface for BrewPi and enables the control of one or multiple BrewPi fermentation temperature controllers from a single web portal. It also integrates support for popular specific gravity sensors such as the iSpindel and Tilt Hydrometer, allowing you to track all elements of fermentation from a single interface. Installation is fast and easy (one command!) and is supported on the latest versions of Raspbian and the Raspberry Pi.
- Complete replacement for BrewPi-www
- Simultaneous support of multiple controllers ("Multi-Chamber" support)
- Native WiFi connection support
- Integrated controller flashing
- One-command installation
- Specific gravity sensor support (including Tilt Hydrometer and iSpindel)
- Free, Open Source, and Python-based (no PHP 5 required!)

Additionally, the installation/usage of Fermentrack is documented via a series of videos on YouTube:
I am immensely thankful for the contributions of @rocket4x4 who has been a key contributor/collaborator in this project. Additional thanks go to Elco & the BrewPi team for designing the original web interface as well as the BrewPi controller. Separately, thanks goes to all the participants in the brewpi-esp8266 thread for providing feedback and ideas as Fermentrack was being developed.
