    The easiest way to do it is to go step-by-step: https://docs.brewersfriend.com/devices/ispindel

    Have you tried that?

    Now I get my Ispindel connected, but the problem that I have now is the gravity because it's in Plato how can I change it?

    Hi Guilleweb.
    Have you had success on that?
    I got my ispindel connected to Brewersfriend, but the gravity was the same for the whole session, 1.004 :-(
    When I access the Ispindel configuration I can see the gravity correctly, so the issue is between Ispindel and Brewersfriend.
    Thanks.

    Hey guys, I'm having the same problem. Strongly considering switching to another platform since this is beyond worthless if it doesn't track SG properly.

    Any tips on how you resolved this?

    @avantassel Does iSpindel always send it as Plato? If not, and the unit is not included, is there anyway to convert it based on the significant figures and the location of the decimal?

    Does the plato value use the format xx.x, and sg use 1.xxx ? If so, it should be easy to convert?

    +1 for Pricelessbrewing

    @avantassel , it would be great if we could set this kind of configuration in the devices' page.
    I want to see the gravity for all my sessions in 1.xxx format, and since I know some device sends the value in Plato, I set for this one a conversion in the configuration page.
    Is this possible?

    @avantassel , I just found out in brewfather, when you configure a new Ispindel, you have to add "_[SG]" in the end of the Ispindel's name in order to inform brewfather that the number must be converted to 1.xxx.
    Would be possible to create something like that (or even easier like a checkbox) here as well?

    Is this feature live yet? I am setting up my Ispindel now and would prefer to see it as specific gravity all the way through.

    Yes this has been updated, please see the documentation page which has different API for plato vs SG.

    Hello,

    I've followed, to the best of my knowledge, connecting my iSpindel to brewerfriends. Is there a way I can see if it is connected? I've tried looking at the cloud link provided with my api, but the page is blank... and yes I've looked after at least 15 minutes.

    If I go to my brew sessions, I don't see it in the fermentation tab when I click on the link and then ispindel.

    I must be doing something wrong.

    Edit: Yes, advice: don't configure while drinking... :) I found what i did wrong. All is working now!!

    Thanks for your help!
    Keep on brewing,
    Eric

    Glad you got it sorted. I don’t know if I should take your advice to not configure while drinking- I believe that I am much smarter after a few beers. At least, I think so anyway. :)
