Has anyone tried The Brew Perfect

Unread postby Nashbrew » Mon Oct 22, 2018 8:00 am

Going to the U.S Xmas was thinking of picking up one of these: https://www.brewperfect.com/products/

Has any one tried on yet?
I did build my own WiFi tilt hydrometer but it did not like the stainless fermenter (Faraday effect).

Hi
I did build a WiFi version but it did not like the stainless fermenter and I am looking for WiFi connection, the Tilt seems to have Bluetooth only.

I second the tilt suggestion... been working good for my needs. Yes there are limitations/downsides but all in all it's a very useful product.

I have to confess I don't get it. (either unit)

Can someone tell me what the need is for these?

I use the Tilt hydrometer and I am happy with it.

benefits:
- no need to take samples for gravity readings (very helpful for NEIPA for dryhop @ at specific gravity)
- precise temperature reading

I think it's great to see the progress in "real time". It was an eye opener for me to see how fast fermentation actually take place and finishes.

Thanks chaps. For a moment there I thought you might be making in flight alterations.

I have said many times the homebrewing community is divided into two camps. Those who like making beer and those who like tinkering with their kit.

I will go with that.

The product for some people is a nice stainless brewery, I know one like that. Its very pretty and very expensive but the beer is very very average.

Well i bit the bullet and bought one back from the US,I have to say what a disappointment.
Firstly to use it you have to tell it the current gravity, was trying to get away with multi measuring.
I,m not sure how these things are calibrated but after a few days it constantly read the wrong temperature.
And gave me a final Alc%5.5 the actual %4 what a waste of time.
The website offers next to no support and there is no adjusting how it calculates the answers it gives you when the reality is completely different, am going to stick with a refractometer.
