    BrewPiLess. BrewPi on a single Wifi board.

    Ok so wiring is all good. Still have the same problems; webpage not graphing and screen not displaying anything (brightness has been turned down). Any ideas before I start troubleshooting?

    BrewPiLess. BrewPi on a single Wifi board.

    Have the board flashed and I think everything's ready for my sparky mate to check it. Few questions about it only being on USB power; - Should the screen work? atm all I've got it a backlight on, no data. - On the brewpiless webpage the temp and beer profile is showing top left, but no graph is...

    Thank you so much! Definitely helped confirmed a few things. I thought better to ask than to go bull at a gate. Yes, some of it is marked but some of it doesn't make any sense to me. I'll go back to the top and bottom copper layers and figure it out (https://pcbs.io/share/46AR1).

    I'm using the "Thorak BrewPi D1 Mini Breakout Board" If someone is using one, are they able to take a shot of their wiring please? I'm struggling to piece together the diagram into this format. Specifically not sure where the DS18B20 and the DC attaches Below is what I have so far. Thanks...

    Thanks! Can anyone help me identify which side is the live and neutral (J1 / C1 on the board)? Or does it not matter? I tried to use the pictures above but the yellow/blue combo threw me.

    Random question If you're wiring both the temp probes together how the hell does the board distinguish the two sets of info?

    @krz do you have the gravity reading from the 35lt mash? Just out of curiosity

    I would check the temp against a scientific thermometer. Mine was out by a degree to begin with and that's at sea level. Enjoy the brew equipment!!!

    Never heard of Tricleanium. What strength do you mix it up to? Any reason you use that, over say, Sodium Percarbonate? +1 to the Brau seal, fits like a glove!!! When I got it, it didn't fit but after wetting the malt pipe it slid down nice and snug. Sounds like the overall problem with...

    Ok, I might try a paste of calcium carbonate. From memory, my last mash was ramping at 800W between steps and a final step at 2000W to boil. Still think a lot of my issues are from grain matter in the boil, so hopefully, I solve that with the silicone and I solve the wort scorching. Would love...

    How would you go about polishing though? I'm worried stainless polish is not the best thing to have in the urn

    GUTEN

    Been thinking about the wort scorching. I've tried using low power settings to alleviate but didn't seem to stop it. I still think I'm getting grains in my boil so the idea of a brau seal is a great idea! I was planning on using a silicone hose but I'm really glad someone else has already...

    Goatchops on the money, shouldn't get astringency unless you're really giving the grain a hard time (pH, oversparge, high temps). http://beersmith.com/blog/2015/10/25/astringency-from-grains-oversparging-and-hot-sparging-your-beer/ I'd really struggle to do full volume without sparging, haven't...

    I tried grain conditioning last brew and was surprised how much more intact the husk was. I didnt stir on mash in because I was reading about low DO, but I think it's what's given me the low efficiency. I had the impression that reciculation was supposed to break up dough balls, especially as I...

    Nah thanks for the help but I should have it covered [emoji106]

    Grain was too fine and didn't recirculate. Really bad scorching on a few brews. Really high efficiency (80%) on my beer before last and really low efficiency on my last beer (66%). Incorrect sized malt pipe that was letting grain in the boil. Still having some minor issues getting the right...
