DS18B20 temperature probes

DS18B20 sensors are an excellent value temperature sensor with fractional degree accuracy. They are the most popular sensors used with electric brewery controllers powered by StrangeBrew Elsinore. In addition to their accuracy and affordability, they can be daisy chained to work off of a single GPIO through the 1wire protocol on Beaglebone Black, Raspberry Pi and other devices. They are also conveniently identified…

Strangebrew Elsinore vs. traditional brewery controllers

When most homebrewers consider building an electric brewery they initially think of the thousands of control panels which have now been inspired by Kal’s The Electric Brewery. Kal’s detailed walkthrough on the process of building an electric brewery hugely increased the accessibility of this type of brewery design, which was previously only approached by those with backgrounds in electrical engineering.

StrangeBrew Elsinore FAQ: utilizing mash profiles

What are mash profiles and how do you utilize them in StrangeBrew Elsinore? Mash profiles prescribe the temperature of your mash during the brewing process. In many cases, mashes have multiple temperature steps in order to activate and deactivate key enzymes. The most basic mash is a single temperature for the entire duration of the mashing process. A simple modification…
