    just bought a Tilt hydrometer, this thing is great. You can see the Gravity as it happens and the temperature with out opening the fermenter. you guys should check it out.

    This is a sweet idea! No samples, no chance of contamination, follow fermentation very closely, all with your phone?
    Will have to save pennys for a while for 4 of them though @ $120 each.

    Got the Google sheet set up. Can also watch on my computer which keeps track of the gravity and temp also has a graph and updates every 15 minutes. It took some works but a great so far.

    the price tag is the only down side for me especially the conversion rate from us to Aus currency that'd be about 200$!

    Sounds like a cool gizmo though but I'll stick with me trusty hydrometer for now.

    Neat piece of kit, but at about £110 I'll give it a miss at the moment
    Cheers
