  • DS18B20 RTD Thermowell

  • If you want to build your brewery setup using an arduino or a raspberry pi, you are likely to use the «one-wire» temperature sensor DS18B20, There is several guides on how to build 1 kettle up to 3 kettle systems, and building the temperature probe into the kettle. If you want to do the same with the one wire sensor, you should use a welded thermowell. There are some thermowell options available f[...]
  • Automated Fermenter

  • We have previously completed our Automated Brewery, its now time to automate the fermenting process. The less things we need to worry about, the more we can focus on what we really love; making recipes and brewing beer! Contents Step 1 - Preparing the Raspberry Pi Connecting cables to the Raspberry Pi Step 2 - Connecting the SSRs (directly to the refrigerator) Wiring Diagram (example) Step[...]
  • Automated brewery

  • Recently, we have expanded and upgraded the brewery for larger batches and more effecient brewing. More equipment, requires additional controls. Initially, we were looking at building a traditional controller, using PID`s and switches. This would allow us to control the pumps and heaters. This is the most traditional method for brewery controllers, and there are a lot of clever guides on how to bu[...]
  • Kort innføring i brygging

  • Brygging er en voksende hobby og lideskap for flere og flere. Sammen med en voksende interesse for håndverksøl, kommer det kanskje en interesse for å lage øl selv. Vi startet selv med dette utgangspunktet og har siden 2013 brygget aktivt. Vår spede start var med helt enkelt utstyr som vi etterhvert oppgraderte til en BeerBrew 60. Det er en kjele av type "kompaktbrygger" som har alt bygget i en og [...]
  • HERMS - Build Log #2

  • Its been a long ride, getting this HERMS completed. Mostly due to the share number of small things that needs to be done. A good tip is, if you are building your own system, use a good amount of time in the planning phase. Small additions like an extra temperature sensor can mean alot of extra fittings etc.. Right, so lets get into it. We completed the setup of all 3 kettles. This included; [...]
  • HERMS - Build Log #1

  • So, its almost time to get the new brewery a run for its money (and it was alot of money) :) New brewstand (tabletop) is installed with 2x chugger ss pumps ready to serve fluids around.   Coverart created by Laymik from Noun Project
  • SSR - The key ingredient

  • Its seems that more and more brewers are looking into and building their own brewery controllers. We have had some great chats with other brewers regarding CraftBeerPi and the Automated Brewery Guide for the hardware. Some of the questions that we receive and we find on the forums are related to the SSR. What type to get, how to wire them and how to install them. So i thought we would offer our[...]
  • Something went wrong

  • So, where to begin. Its been a hectic summer, both at the brewery building our new HERMS setup, but also on the IT side. Running websites and all sorts of people engagement media, requires resources and time. All that is done with pure joy and enthusiasm, but there is that risk of dealing with attacks and the shitty part of the world wide web. Back early June, we took down the site and moved to[...]
  • HLT (Hot Liquor Tank)

  • And so, it began.. The HLT comes together at last.. The hardware: QMax holepunch for a 21mm (1/2") hole. This will ensure a smooth cut instead of burred from a traditional drill.      Link: https://store.brewpi.com/q-max-sheet-metal-hole-punch-21mm HLT Coil - weldless type. This does not require any tubing fittings etc to mount.. Its also held suspended nicely when you fasten the two nuts[...]
  • Selg varer i egen nettbutikk

  • Vi har hatt som et lite sideprosjekt å lage en side for bryggere, hvor vi kan selge varer vi ikke trenger eller har overskudd av. MittBryggeri.com har vært "live" en stund nå, men har også vært under utvikling siden den ble publisert. Vi føler nå at vi er ganske fornøyde med både siden og funksjonene den tilbyr. Det aller meste er tilgjengelig med Norsk språk og custom til vårt behov. Så hva kan d[...]

  • Getting Started - Brewing with Raspberry Pi

  • SD CARD Preperation: First, make sure your SD card is formatted. The easy method of doing this is from Windows startmenu, search for: diskpart This will give you a small cmd window where we can manually clean and format our SD card. Why not the old fashion way? Because SD cards that have been used before are really difficult to format to their full size using the traditional Windows format option[...]
  • Strange and Classy

  • På grunn av flere ting, så har vi ikke brygget noe nytt hos Leaning Man på en stund. Et lite skifte i bryggere og fremtidsplaner har tatt litt tid å komme igjennom. Vi hadde flere planer for å bygge opp et større bryggeri, samtidig som vi ønsket å være med i konkurranser og festivaler. Det started for oss med oppskrifter og smaker som var både merkelige men samtidig stilfulle. Hva betyr egentlig d[...]
