Thanks that worked out just fine.

#35079 Homebrew fermentation temperature controller

Posted by Coding Smackdown on 12 September 2012 - 09:47 PM

I bought several of the relays for SparkFun to do just what your talking about and they work fine for things like the fridge, freezer and pump motors. I wouldn't try to drive a Water Heating element with them though. I was searching for a good thermocouple/thermistor for one of my mod projects and found that Brewer's Hardware have several different types you could purchase that work OK. I just stay away from the temp probes for the Brewtroller since they use One-Wire support and right now the Netduino does not support One-Wire communications without dropping back to version 4.1. I found out that they have both Positive and Negative temperature coefficient temp probes so you might want to call them to make sure you get one that is a negative coefficient probe and then you can use any of thermistor code out on the arduino forums to read the probes. I've also posted a lot about my Netduino Brewing Projects out on my site and am in the process of putting together a book on my projects. Good Luck! I'm looking forward to what you come up with.

#30214 Brewing Beer with a Netduino Plus

Posted by Coding Smackdown on 05 June 2012 - 05:13 AM

I've been working on a new brewing project and have gotten far enough along to start showing it off to folks. I've been working on modifying an Electric Turkey Fryer that I can use to brew small batch of beer for competitions and such. I based the temperature control off of my previous DIY Brewery Temperature Monitor project and enhanced it to allow the user to enter in a temperature that the Netduino will work to maintain during the mashing process. I've also added buttons to control the system for those times when I don't have a network handy along with a LCD Display to show the current status of the system. I'm still waiting for the circuit boards to come back from so I can assemble the system in a nice control panel. You can read about it over at my DIY Brewery Blog at
