Beer Travel / Re: Beer on the Great Wall

Love Epcot, only place at Disney that's for parents and you can drinkand eat your way around the world!

Same here. I was there a few years back for the Beer and Wine Festival. Lots of drunks having a beer at every single 'country'. We had a blast.
I've been to Disney many times, as a kid it was great! As a parent, well, not a vacation at all but Epcot saves the day, we always left it for last, kids be damned, its adult time!

Equipment and Software / Re: A smart-device for brewing
« on: May 06, 2015, 03:43:17 AM »
If the device (system?) measures throughout the entire process there will be probes inserted. Repeatedly. This is scary for homebrewers.

The above will have to be explained further if you want to proceed.

I'm interested in the wifi data logging but want temp control also. Price point is acceptable, but what you're offering is quite limited. PID temp controllers offer more.
I agree, if you're going to monitor the temp then make it able to adjust the temp remotely as well, otherwise I really don't see the need.

Would the device also be able to alter the temperatures as well wirelessly, if not, I personally don't see the benefit.

For people that brew on fully electric systems they already have  a control panel to monitor and program temps from mash on through and already have temp controled fermentation as well so simply knowing the temp is really no benefit for adds cost of a device. At least that's my take:)

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Life span of beer in a keg vs a bottle
« on: April 30, 2015, 02:23:15 PM »
I think the OP is asking about preservation and freshness of the beer, not the fact it may be consumed faster:)

I've had kegs kick in less than a week and some that take several months and haven't noticed any degradation of product in the kegs that seem to take forever to kick, they are kept cold and under gas. Bottles I try to store at cellar temperatures and they also last a long time properly stored. Some for years, But I think storing a keg to cellar a beer for months or years is poor use of the vessel.

Sounds like the beer is freezing, as Amanda asked, where is the probe?

At what temp are the bottles sitting? 70+ is ideal and a big beer like that will most likely take longer than the average 10-14 days.

I never used them but the Coopers drops have been known at times to not work so well I've heard.
