    I've got a free fridge you can have for a couple of beers. It's got a bit of surface rust, but cold crashes well.

    Diff USB cable, same problem. Both cables flash ESP32's with no problem so I don't think I suspect the cable at all

    So I'm still having problems with my second iSpindel device. I can't write to the flash or erase it even. Various tools used to try and wipe the flash esptool I get "A fatal error occurred: MD5 of file does not match data in flash!" exception when trying to write 6.1.1 firmware to device. I...

    @NoClue2Brew: sorry, I missed your post. Tag me next time so I get notified. Type the @ symbol and then start typing my name. It should pop up a list to choose from. Did you end up sorting your problems out? What is your BC username and I can have a look at the database values. They will...

    iSpindel Digital Hydrometer

    yep, you are right: if calibrated correctly then no need for offset. But it's necessary if you drop it on the bench just prior to ferment and don't have time to calibrate again. :D I like the idea of being able to externally adjust values coming from the iSpindel without having to crack the...

    They both have pluses and minuses. Cost of iSpindel being a major plus for us home-brewers. One big plus Tilt has over iSpindel is in-fermentor connection verification. The Tilt app you can see straight away that a connection is made to your blue Tilt, and you can manually test data being sent...

    Brewers Chronicle does not have the capability to forward readings through to other services, and I doubt any of the other various services would provide that feature either for security reasons. If BC was to post readings through to UbiDots, then it would need to have on record your UbiDots APi...

    Cool, thanks @Seeker I've PM'd you my mobile number if you could text me your address. I'll head off now.

    Free small chest freezer Gold coast

    Hi @Seeker Does it still work as a freezer, or only good for fermentation? If it still works as freezer, I can pick it up around 5PM this afternoon. Would it fit into the back of an Outlander (SUV type thing)? I can put it up on the roof racks but would prefer inside the car. :-D Dimensions...

    It's a bit more technical, but I would suggest logging into your router device and assign DHCP reservations for both your Raspberry pi and iSpindel devices. That way you lock in the IP address they use, and you know exactly what IP addresses you are using. Echoing what bee2gee said, I would...

    Sorry about the delay: http://rfmodules.com.au/UD100-G03?search=UD100-G03 (USB bluetooth module) + http://rfmodules.com.au/DAT5-G01R?search=DAT5-G01R (add-on antenna) You will need to disable the on-board bluetooth so the 2 bluetooth modules don't argue with each other. This page worked for me...

    Based on my experience Bluetooth Tilt works better than the iSpindel. I had to add a higher powered Bluetooth antenna to my Raspberry Pi so I didn't have to place the Pi right next to the seal. This was working with 120L commercial SS jacketed fermentors.

    iSpindel Digital Hydrometer

    Your SS tank is pretty much the worst environment to try and get signals out of. You "might" get a signal out by breaking the metallic connection between the body and lid. Thick silicon seal between lid and body. You might also need to break the metallic connection between hinges/clamps. Try...

    We all need 4 batches aging at one time. ;) Good news. Hopefully you find the integration as easy as NullnVoid

    iSpindel Digital Hydrometer

    ohh dude, that sucks. Was looking forward to someone else integrating it into my site. Sounds like you "might" be able to replace just the wifi module, and not the entire board. I very gently bent my pins towards the centre of the boards as it was a very tight fit same as yours. It then...

    Click on the gear icon for the "internal://" line. You 'll end up replacing that with 'c:\temp\folder\firmware601.bin'

    Click on the gear icon, and then navigate your way to the temp folder and select the bin folder.

    And it timed out at 1AM (about 2 hours after I put it in there) and got the old "Rescue Wifi Credentials" problem. A reset booted it into config mode where it complained about ROM CRC not being valid and no OneWire temp sensor Can someone run through their flashing process? It seems very flaky...
