    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 fermenter).

    The official repeater is about $130 AUD and can only repeat 1 tilt at a time AFAIK. My "solution" can be cobbled together for less than $10 and repeat all Tilts within range. It is most definitely not as low energy however.

    The code can be found at https://gist.github.com/N3MIS15/72658a024eb0dfde6d1c0958092acd42

    'I would love some feedback from anyone who is willing to give it a shot.

    Cheers,
    Davo.

    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.
