Just started a new brew on Saturday afternoon/evening, at now it’s bubbling away merrily.
I have attached the newest birthday gadget to the brewing bucket – my electronic water-lock PLAATO.
As you can see from the picture it’s powered with a standard USB micro cable, and it’s got WiFi built in to store all the data in the cloud – on the accompanying App it looks like this :
The green line is counting the number of bubbles going through the air-lock.
All very exciting – but there were a few gremlins to fight to get it all working. If you look at the line there were very few bubbles before 17:00. In reality there were lot of bubbles before 17:00, they just did not register properly.
For those of you that are home brewers yourself – you will notice that the temperature is quite low. This is because I have yet to find my heating belt for the fermentor. (-;
