    Matho's controller

    Sweeeeet. If this doesn't improve my electronics skills I don't know what will. :D

    Matho's controller

    Doh! I've been meaning to check this thread. I don't suppose there are any boards going begging?

    Arduino Development Thread

    Nup. Chances were slim, with all the yanks living on there all day. Just a dozen or so tries on the train / bus for me (phone). Didn't stop me hoping though. :)

    Arduino Development Thread

    Sorry for the late notice, I just got an email from my local hackerspace Sparkfun's free day starts in 4.5 hours. Good for shields, etc. Win free $100 vouchers.

    http://www.slashgear.com/raspberry-pi-25-u...nuary-28204830/ Anyone seen these yet? That add on board sounds interesting (drives motors, sensors, etc). I know arduino is a computer / open source OS as well, but damn, this looks quite high powered.

    Mead! Mk Ii And Iii

    Just a note. Strawberries are unlikely to add much sweetness. They have less sugar than most fruit, and when making wine from them sugar is usually added. They will add some flavour and colour though, just little in the way of residual sweetness (that will need to come from the honey)...

    Galvanised Steel In Mlt

    Might just go with nylon fishing line for my use (sewing stainless mesh into a hop blocked). Thanks.

    Where in Oz can we get stainless wire? The big green shed doesn't have it. :(

    Non-stick Ok In Boil Kettle?

    The Bastard Mark beat me to it, but read my links. My reading has reassured me though. Boiling water will reach a max temp of 100* at sea-level and around abouts. As long as it's not touching the element, so probably not a good fit for you.

    Non-stick Ok In Boil Kettle?

    Oh dear, I hope it's alright otherwise I'll need to find another way of attaching the mesh to the malt pipe in my ghettomiser (I'm using a spring form cake tin). PS. Here's what Wikipedia has to say: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-stick_pan At first I was a little worried, but it seems...

    Spog, if heating a kettle is all you need to do you could use an STC-1000. Not trying to put you off experimenting, if that's what you want to do, but an STC-1000 is a cheaper and simpler way to heat a kettle or HLT etc. If you want to do both then an arduino may be cheaper.

    Braumeister NEXTGEN Build

    Sounds good. Let us know how the S/S mesh goes, as that and the washers are all I'm waiting on. I'm attaching the mesh to the pot with a spring form cake tin with a closed diameter just smaller than the lip of the inner pot (ie malt pipe). Here's hoping this ghetto setup can support 3kg of...

    Braumeister NEXTGEN Build

    Keen to hear how the beer ended up Matho? Hopefully good as I have all the parts I need for my manual version (or they're in the mail) :). Mine is probably closer to Tim F's last iteration though (but with the wort traveling down). Can't wait until she's up and running. Should be pics some...

    Arduino Development Thread

    Considering the cost of those cables and boards I will probably grab one of these 328 kits that come with a board: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Arduino-Pro-Min...e-/180747779579 as well as Bonj's. I've been doing some reading and Arduino looks fun to play with. I've wanted to make a robot for ages.

    Arduino Development Thread

    Thanks Bonj! There was a stainless steel version that looked good, except for the long plastic lead, lol, kind of pointless really. They look like a much better option.

    Arduino Development Thread

    Just found this: http://brettbeauregard.com/blog/2011/04/im...d-introduction/ Probably old hat for those making their own PIDs in the arduino, but looks useful. ps. I can't see how those thermometers that everyone is linking would survive in hot water, are they inside thermowells?

    Arduino Development Thread

    Yeah, it's going to be a permanent solution so I have no problem soldering on the stuff I need, thanks Zizzle. Got any links to the stuff you've done? Like a blog or something? EDIT: http://zizzle-brewbot.blogspot.com :D

    Arduino Development Thread

    Heh, no, I'm just looking at the moment. I need to finish building my brew machine first, and make sure it works. I will do the first few brews manually using an STC-1000, and if that's not too much of a hassle I might never automate it. It's on my wish, rather than my to do list. Though...

    Arduino Development Thread

    Oh, well, naw, I don't really have the knowledge to mess around with it like that. I found this store: http://stores.ebay.com.au/e4u2011/_i.html?...1581&_pgn=5 Which seems to have a good price on lots of components (and even example code). I found this...
