Strike up the band, it's time for the eighth, and final, installment of this fermentation instrumentation series. In part four, I placed several different sensors in several different carboys of beer beginning fermentation. In parts six and seven, I analyzed a week of data from two of the sensors. This post will cover the third sensor, a floating accelerometer.

Keeping on the hop, it's time for part seven of this fermentation instrumentation series. In part four, I placed a few different sensors in some actively fermenting beer to gather data. In the previous post, I looked at data from a commercial sensor. Now it's time to examine the data from my experimental pressure sensor.

Welcome back for part six of the fermentation instrumentation series. In part four, I placed a few different sensors in some actively fermenting beer to gather data. A week has now passed, and I've bottled the beer. Time to look at the data. Let's start with the device we know - the BeerBug.

Welcome back for part five of the fermentation instrumentation series. In part four, I placed a few different sensors in some actively fermenting beer to gather data. I now have a few days of pressures and force vectors to analyze …

This is part four of a series on monitoring homebrew fermentation. In parts one, two, and three, I experimented with data I downloaded from one platform and uploaded to another. In this part, I create some new sensors to try.

My code is ugly, but it works, so it's time to post part three of this series. In part one, I downloaded data captured by my BeerBug. In part two, I uploaded it to the Helium platform. In this entry, I'll read use Helium's API to query and graph the data.

Welcome back for part two. In part one, I explained how I exported my historical brewing data from The BeerBug's website. In this part, I'm going to demonstrate what I've learned about one alternative, the Helium platform.

I'm not super into the Internet-of-Things. There are no wifi lightbulbs, electronic locks, or smart thermostats in my house. But, I'm a homebrewer, and that means I love new ways to get data about my beer. I backed The BeerBug on Kickstarter, and I've used it on a number of batches since early 2014.
