(Room) temperature data logging

Recently Brewbrain delivered a protoype of a My Brewbrain connected temperature data logger to a user.

As one of our customer was looking into monitoring the temperature of his brewhouse to get a better uderstanding of the impact on his fermenters he contacted us about his idea.
Brewbrain developed the small WiFi connected hub with a onboard temperature and humidity sensor. Next to that up to 3 temperature probes with 5 meter silicone cable are delivered with the system to measure at different positions on the same time.

The data is presented on the free My Brewbrain platform in the same user friendly interface users are used to with the Float Hydrometer.
Check out the readings of the system to get an impression.

Are you interested in buying or reselling this product or are you in need for another smart product that will make your brewing-life easier?

Contact us at sales@brewbrain.nl for details.

Cheers!

Adjust your Float’s calibration

Brewbrain developed a sophisticated adjustment tool which allows for a multi point offset correction related to the factory calibration. This keeps the original characteristics of the intrument, while the offset gives the opportunity to fine tune the readings.

With an easy to use interface users can now adjust the calibration to meet hydrometer or refractometer readings of their Floats for Free!

To make this possible we developed a brand new firmware for your Float, which can be remotely updated by WiFi. Check out your “My Floats” menu, apply the new firmware and switch to “measure”. Easy!

After 15 minutes switch to “setup” and you will be able to acces the maintenance menu to start calibrating your product.

Check out our manual on re-calibration here!

Brewbrain invested a lot of time and effort to optimise the calibration process in order to deliver the Float calibrated from factory. Being interested in brewing and technical solutions Brewbrain is still developing new methods and improvements to give our clients the best possible user experience and product accuracy.

Float readings can differ from your Glass Hydrometer because of a lot of phenomena in your brew. There can also be changes of the calibration accuracy because of temperature stress and bumping the Float.

With the new calibration adjustment it is possible to match the readings of your hydrometer or refractometer!

Happy brewing!

What’s new on the My Brewbrain platform?

Last year, Brewbrain collaborated with graphic design agency Kordaat on the rebranding of our visual identity. With this, they not only designed our corporate website, but also did a total make-over of the My Brewbrain-platform.

What’s changed?
The result is a new logo along with new typography for a more consistent and modern look and feel. The update of My Brewbrain is significant, we’ve made it easier for brewers to monitor and present their data on a mobile device or a desktop computer. Soon we will start working on the release of an app in the stores, but the option for creating an app is already possible. Check out the next blog to get the “how to” instructions.

Starting from this point we will continuously develop new features in the My Brewbrain platform. The platform contains blocks with information, called Brewblox. In the future we will create several options to configure these according to your needs. Other upcoming Brewbrain products will also present their data in the same Brewblox, with different data. All your brewing data together, in one screen!

Introduction
I would like to do a small introduction into the new platform, in the upcoming blogs I will walk you through the platform in more detail. The screen has a new navigation pane with your dashboard, Floats, brews, groups, integrations and a help & FAQ.

Dashboard
The dashboard is divided in two parts; “Your recent brews” and “Recent public brews”. When you would like to see the details of your brew, click “View details” and the screen of the selected brew will open. Here you can zoom into the data of your temperature, SG, and battery graphs. On the right part of this screen you can write some notes or export your data.

My Floats
Go to My Floats to get an overview of the status of the products you own. Battery, Wifi strength and heartbeat will give you direct information. Selecting one Float makes it possible to start a brew and view or manage settings.

My Brews
In the My Brews section all the brews you made are stored. This helps you if you want to reproduce a fermentation or to optimise it.

My Groups
Groups can help you to share your data with different users. Do you have a club or group of friends? Share the data together. People who don’t own a Float can also register for free and join a group to watch the active fermentation of brewing friends!

My Integrations
When there is need for integration with third-parties, like Brewfather or Grainfather, you can choose to share your data with the desired party. An easy guide will help you to set this up.

Help & FAQ
The last section is Help & FAQ. We would like to give our customers the best experience as possible, if you need help here you can find most solutions for your issues.

Are you interested to check out our new platform? You can take a look around with the guest account option.

Brewbrain will keep you up to date with different blog posts with different subjects from new products to experimental tests, how-to’s and detailed recipe interviews.

Cheers, Bart
