Denny beat me by a few seconds. Quick fingers.

Not enough information. Methods? Recipes?

Equipment and Software / Proane regulator problem?
« on: December 02, 2017, 07:37:45 AM »
Sounds like you may tripped the safety mech in the regulator. Turn everything off, wait 15 min, crack open the cylinder valve, wait 10 sec, slowly open the cylinder valve completely, open regulator and light.

Second guess, too cold.

There is also a brewpi project to monitor ferment temps, graph them and kick on heat/cold via a relay.  It produces a webpage for remote viewing.
CraftBeer Pi is what BrewPi could have been. That thing is a never ending development nightmare. Full hot side control has been talked about for years. The one big plus for BrewPi is the use of a micro controller for the actual code execution and the Pi is just a sever.

In red X I get a dark cherry flavor. So bing?

For sure cherry in RedX. I find it distracting in dry beers, ok in malty beers

Back in the 70s brewers experimented with "continuous fermentation" as a way of maximizing plant productivity.   The idea was to have a continuous flow of wort passing through a "reactor" containing a mass of very active yeast held between porous barriers.  It never caught on, but I can imagine it might just be the way to go in zero g.
Used today in yeast production.

Software is open source and free. I don’t remember the pricing for the hats. There is a very long HBT thread with some third party hats, the official is available on the Facebook page.

(googling Craftbeer Pi)
The developer released an official “hat” and there are third party hats available as well. BrewPi seems to be stuck in vapor ware due to the developer trying to launch a perfect product. CraftBeer Pi is plug-in based and has a vibrant community behind it.

I’ll be using CraftBeer Pi when I move to electric.

The OP wasn’t crashing. He lowered the temp 5°

Most everything would be under pressure.  It would need to be mechanical pressure like a bladder squeezing.

Beer stone remover. I’ve never seen it in shops, but I’m sure it can be ordered.
