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).

They are brilliant. :beerbang:

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.
