No graphing of ambient temperature?

    Hi
    We post session data through the API (streams), fermentation and ambient temperature. I have found no way of getting a graph of the ambient temperature. Is there a way, if so how? I find it especially useful in the yeast exotermic phase, where there could be 5ºC difference between beer and ambient, even on small batches.

    Are you using a Tilt, or something else?
    I can’t think of a way to add the temperature, unless your device measures the ambient temperature as well as the beer temp/SG/etc.

    Not title, but as I wrote, the data is posted through stream (https://docs.brewersfriend.com/api/stream) - Stream allow for you to post the ambient temp. with the probe fermentation temp. And if you look really carefully at the screenshot you might spot the ambient temp. right bellow the fermentation temp.

    Any more news on this? I had a similar issue last year. I used a microcontroller to measure my chiller temperature and send the temperature data to the session’s data stream. I could never get it to display.

    Let's see what we can do about this. @Pricelessbrewing what do you think? Can you give some input?

    As long as the device sends it, I think this should be doable. I would want it to be toggle-able at the users preference to display on the chart or not. Probably as a dashed line?

    Toggle-able sounds fine. Dashed line - great. As long as I can see the data I sent alongside the “standard” data. It would be great if I could display more than one data stream at a time. Watching the chiller temperature lets me know when to add more ice during the summer. Watching ambient temperature tells me when to worry about it.

    According to our developer, there is an ambient field you can use for a secondary temp, https://docs.brewersfriend.com/api/stream

    Yes, I can post to it but I can’t plot the values. I’ll play with this again next week. Life is getting in the way right now.
