    It would be useful to have the ability to add a fermentation temperature profile as part of a recipe. This would provide a guide for setting temp controllers, Brewjackets, etc.

    I doubt I'd ever build the level of automation required, but I could see something like stages based on both time and attenuation (from something like a tilt). So stages like:
    • start fermentation at 18°C
    • at 30% attenuation let the temp rise to 24°C
    • at 48 hours raise the temp to 20°C
    • at fermentation complete lower the temp to 4°C

    At some point, a person might as well purchase a Brewie :rolleyes:

    That sounds like a good feature!

    I think the input format could be quite simple, just a repeating set of the following stages:
    Start temp; End Temp; Duration

    The recipe could then plot a graph of the temperature profile; if start and end temps are the same it will be a horizontal line, and if they are different it would just plot a straight line slope.

    Well, that might be a good idea in general, but unless I missed something I don't think a Brewie controls fermentation temps, so the problem still exists

    Brewie 3.0! Total automated brewing.... just plug it in and when its done and bottled, you’ll get a text that says your beer is ready to pick up. Just like having a beer distributor at home!

    Siri, make beer.... It really isn't such a bad idea as long as I can turn it off.
