Shall I wait for the new version one to come into stock??
Don't think any suppliers have them yet as only released approx. 27th August
Maybe the other older version 2 may be discounted slightly from suppliers :D

I have done 6 brews with mine. Fairly accurate and top fermenting yeast does affect the readings but settles down. It is the difference between Og and Fg that matters to get abv so don’t worry too much if it’s a bit out.

Yes mine are the Black and Blue ones.
Also ordered a new Raspberry Pi Model 3+ 64-Bit Quad Core as the Pi is cheap to buy and it has built in Wireless and Bluetooth and cant find my Wireless and Bluetooth usb adaptors :(
Have flashed TiltPi on my micro sd card ready to put into the Pi when I put it in a case and have a play this weekend and try and sort the WiFi and Google sheets parts :geek: :ugeek:

your google sheet looks different than mine.
same problem using the laptop?
try to install google sheets app from appstore if you use the smatphone or tablet.
looks like a browser issue "undefined"

Tip: if you set your tilt to record each 15 min or less, you will need to insert more lines to "data" tab in google sheets. (one week and a half later my tilt was not recording data because no available lines were available in the Google sheet data tab. just press "add more rows" at the bottom and its fine. :)


no calibration was needed for the SG?

I checked the SG of mine in water and it was near enough spot on so did not have to calibrate it.
I already added more lines last night so it can carry on logging.
The 1st sheet that was emailed to me when I first set it up was automatically created and looks like your report one with the small tilt logo and abv and other info lines which i prefer the look of,but it would not log or update or do anything so i used the Brewbaron Brewometer Cloud Template one and made a copy of their file as they show on their blog webpage.The graph part is now actually working on mine but i prefer the original layout sheet which gives more information on the 1st page rather than the large Tilt logo i have on mine which does not include all the other useful info.
My original sheet below that was emailed to me when I first set the Tilt up on Saturday,with the Tilt in water.

Hi,

I never set anything up. I'm using an Android tablet.

After the app 'discovers' the Tilt, just name your brew, and check that the correct colour is selected in each field.

Then, in the comments tab, type in your gmail address and post it as a comment. You will receive an email with a link to the table/graph which will update every 15 mins.

MBC :)
