BrewSource | Raspberry Pi Project -
BrewSource is an open source, Raspberry Pi-powered monitor for your beer fermentation
Table of contents
You will also need Python 3.x.x for the Raspberry Pi in order to get the temperature-monitoring and camera stream going.
The thermometer script is dependent on a package called pymongo
You'll also need a DS18B20 Waterproof Digital Temperature Sensor to read temperatures
After you've cloned the repository:
Open a terminal, navigate to your local clone (folder), and type:
sudo apt-get install python-pip pip install pymongo
You'll need to create an account, a brewery, and finally a batch which the temperatures belong to
Copy the ID of the batch you want to monitor, and paste it in the "batchID" variable in the thermometer.py script
Finally, open the folder temperature. Type:
sudo python thermometer.py
The launcher.sh script is used to run the python script on reboot
In order to get this working, you'll need to do the following:
sudo crontab -e @reboot sh /home/pi/brewpi/launcher.sh >/home/pi/logs/cronlog 2>&1
