    Full Aperture Can Conditioning

    For what its worth I did end up purchasing full aperture cans and have canned a batch of beer. After 4 weeks I am happy to report they have conditioned without issue. Cheers.

    ESP32 Tilt Repeater

    I have a similar setup. 2 separate fridges both with stainless fermenters. I have an esp32 inside each fridge powered via a phone charger. I currently don't use tiltpi as logging is not my thing, but I have in the past. I would suggest trying to locate the bluetooth dongle somewhere between the...

    Full Aperture Can Conditioning

    Thanks MHB, seems reasonable. I wont be canning again for at least 2 weeks, but unless anyone has any horror stories in the next week or so I think i will go with full aperture.

    Full Aperture Can Conditioning

    Cheers mate. I am working to a calculated value, I am targeting 2.5 volumes. The lids I would be looking to purchase are from kegland. They don't seem to offer the pressure rating themselves, but knowing where they source their cans might prove useful. The pressure rating was not a concern to...

    Full Aperture Can Conditioning

    Hey there, I was thinking about buying full aperture lids with my next batch of cans. As I prefer to can condition, I was wondering if the full aperture lids can handle the pressure while conditioning. The standard lids tend to bulge a little, but I have not had any failures due to the lid...

    Tilt Hydrometer - Who Uses Them?

    I have 3. I only use them to let me know when fermentation is complete. They are far from accurate in my experience, but do well enough to show a curve if logging through something like Tiltpi. I use stainless fermenters making logging hit or miss. I have been using homemade ESP32 repeaters...

    ESP32 Tilt Repeater

    This repeater is for Bluetooth, the Tilt specifically. Wifi repeaters are pretty common, Google openwrt. It's an open source router firmware. If you get lucky 1 of your old routers will support it. Openwrt can pretty easily be configured to turn routers into repeaters. Compatible routers can...

    ESP32 Tilt Repeater

    FWIW this is the output from serial while connected to my phone. 5 Bluetooth devices were found and 3 were recognized as Tilt hydrometers. The green tilt is in some cleaning solution so ignore its temp and gravity.

    ESP32 Tilt Repeater

    I wrote a small sketch that repeats the data sent from any tilts it finds. My Tiltpi logging data while brewing in stainless fermenters that are inside fridges has proven difficult. The ESP32 repeater seems to have solved my issue. I have placed one inside each of my 3 fridges (outside of the...

    Yup, Cascade popped up last week. Chinook, POR, Columbus & Hallertau still to come.

    Using ESP32 OLED to get Tilt data

    I was hesitant to post this as the code is very bare bones, has absolutely zero error handling and probably totally the wrong way to go about this. I did however get working exactly what i was after. For $18~ on aliexpress and a bit of dodgy code I can now check my tilt hydrometer readings...

    2018 Hop Plantations

    Fwiw the pic I took is a couple shoots from a second year plant that had grown to about 600mm tall. There was about 200mm between nodes which was triggered me to cut the plant back. Dunno if I made the right call, but the rapid growth seemed too good to be true [emoji53]

    I'm guessing this is what a "bull shoot" looks like. Seems hollow to me...

    2018 Hop Plantations

    The soil is good. It's a raised bed. My concern is with planting the 3 rhizomes in close proximity.

    2018 Hop Plantations

    I have 3 small por rhizomes and was wondering what the best plan of attack might be. I have a garden bed prepped (about a meter square). I was thinking of either putting them in pots to see which takes the best, or just putting them all in the garden bed and letting them ride. Thoughts?
