Automated Brewery with CraftBeerPi.... was created by ajburnet
Hi folks. I've been busy brewing with a RoboBrew with good success and I'm now planning on a new project which is to build a (mostly) automated 3 vessel HERMS setup using CraftBeerPi .

Generally a fan of all things automation so it just makes sense!

Goal here is that I can fill up the HLT, add the grain to the mash tun and start the process. The process would end with it transferring the chilled wort into the fermenter and finally, managing the fermentation process to completion.

Has anyone here embarked on a project like this? In the planning stages so looking for input / thoughts / questions!

Thanks,

Alex.

Sounds ambitious! but not impossible. I have a couple of arduino based ones but only for the mash, I've never used them for brewing lol they have been tested and sit in a drawer, one day I will :) Good luck!

Hi ajburnet,
I too am interested in the craftbeerPi system and I also brew with a Robobrew gen2 with pump. I have had problems with the RB controller cutting out during the boiling process and have fitted a small fan inside the base of the RB to allow for some circulation but it still cuts out on occasions. I had the CraftbeerPIV2 running on a Raspberry 3 without the relays power side hardware and all seemed good but then the Craftbeer developers started work on the Ver3 system. I must admit that I didn't followup with that version but what I saw of the Ver2 system looked good so assume that the Ver3 would be even better.
I would be interested in looking at this as a project as I don't think that the RB controller is of high quality and I may have to replace it in the future anyway so I consider the CraftbeerPIver3 as a plan B.
Happy to keep in touch

Paul

Hey guys, New to the forum. I too am in the process of building an all electric semi automated brewery. I am very interested in following this thread and learning as much as I can.
