Converting to Electric Brewery

Hi All,

I've been extract brewing for a few years now on a HBC kit with a few additions. What I would ultimately like to do is use my current setup along with a temperature probe controlled by a raspberry pi. I'm not completely sure where to begin though and I hope some of you out there have done this and can advise.

Thanks,

James

The BrewPiLess is possibly a handier (& definitely cheaper) option, it's based on the BrewPi algorithms.

If you have any PCB/solder experience it is relatively easy to setup. You can log on to it through your phone to make any fermenting changes to it.

Here's more info on it; the BrewPiLess is an updated & lighter version of these Review: BrewPi, BrewPi Parts, Building a cheaper BrewPi & BrewPi on the Cheap

Yeah a BrewPi(Less) is yer only man, it's probably the best bit of brewing kit I have. Loads and loads of info online. I see Pob has already given you a few places to start. Good luck with it.

Thanks for the replies everyone, will definitely look into the BrewPi(less) option to start with.
