I added the ability for the BrewTroller computer to sense the volume of liquid during brewing. For now it’s only the mash tun cooler (needed to test things out), but it seems to work great. Once each vessels is hooked up to a sensor then the computer can automatically fill each vessel with the correct amount of water, sparge correctly, etc….all on it own. It’s going to be slick!!
Here the computer is telling me I have 21.7L in the MLT cooler. The temperature is 49ºC (heating to 50ºC) in the MLT. The volume is zero in the HLT as it’s not hooked up yet.
I also added some better LEDs to the control panel (the others burnt out). Green means its controlled by the computer, red is manual control.
Rob founded Homebrew Korea in 2008 to share his home brewing experiences with others. Homebrew Korea quickly turned into a community as there were many other expats in S. Korea that had the same difficulties and had the same questions that he encountered. Homebrew Korea is now a thriving community of local expat brewers, cheese makers and all-round fermentationists.
