    Great! I'll let you know when we are ready for beta testing, and where to put the comments you may have. Thank you so much!

    I just bought one and was thinking about how best to integrate it. Hoping you found a solution to the limitation of being anchored to a mobile device.

    Where did you buy yours? I'm thinking about it, and trying to justify the cost.

    Direct from tilthydrometer.com. I got it for sweet ciders so I know exactly when to cold crash without pulling samples every few hours.

    Now I'm looking for a cheap android phone that I can just leave next to the fermenter and constantly log updates for all primary

    Great! We're not quite ready yet, but if you PM me your email address, or send it to [email protected], I'd add you to the list and let you know right away when it's up on beta.

    Have you thought about using a Raspberry PI? I used a Zero to connect to my Tilt, and push the data to a Google Sheet. I also use a small display to show the data. You can see it in action here.

    The Nitty Gritty is here. All in all I spent about $40 for the PI, Display, and some wires.

    I did, but my fermenters are in a location with no outlets. Battery solutions for Rpi aren't great yet.

    The PI doesn't have to be too near the fermenter(s), but it uses bluetooth so that distance would be a constraint. I haven't tested specific distances but the distance from my fermentation chamber to my work-couch was about 20 feet line-of-sight, and it was able to connect. ymmv of course.

    I have a tilt and wants to be in on the beta testing. I'm using a Raspberry PI with my tilt. I'v noticed that the fermentation tab has been implemented in brew session so it's maybe to late for testing?
