  • DS18B20 RTD Thermowell

  • If you want to build your brewery setup using an arduino or a raspberry pi, you are likely to use the «one-wire» temperature sensor DS18B20, There is several guides on how to build 1 kettle up to 3 kettle systems, and building the temperature probe into the kettle. If you want to do the same with the one wire sensor, you should use a welded thermowell. There are some thermowell options available f[...]
  • Automated Fermenter

  • We have previously completed our Automated Brewery, its now time to automate the fermenting process. The less things we need to worry about, the more we can focus on what we really love; making recipes and brewing beer! Contents Step 1 - Preparing the Raspberry Pi Connecting cables to the Raspberry Pi Step 2 - Connecting the SSRs (directly to the refrigerator) Wiring Diagram (example) Step[...]

Initially, we were looking at building a traditional controller, using PID`s and switches. This would allow us to control the pumps and heaters. This is the most traditional method for brewery controllers, and there are a lot of clever guides on how to bu[...]
