Fermbot

Keep an eye on this space as I’ll soon be sharing some of the details of an Arduino based dual-stage multi-step fermentation controller project I’m working on. My goal is to make something brewers can put together for under $100 without skimping on functionality.

    I have been looking into doing something similar. Check out brewpi.com

    Hi Zach,
    Yes, I’ve seen BrewPi. There are a few things I don’t like about that project as I think it’s overly complicated (including both an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi, wiring into the electrics of the fridge, etc.) I think my approach is going to be lower coast, easier to build, and be more flexible and extensible. Consider my work to be friendly competition to what he’s doing.
