Introducing the Adafruit Keg Bot #piday #raspberrypi

The Adafruit Keg Bot is a team project by everyone at Adafruit! We wanted to see how we could augment a kegerator with cool hardware from the Adafruit store and make it active online.

Our first experiment was to hook up a liquid flow meter to a Raspberry Pi and have the keg tweet every time someone drinks from it! Follow @AdafruitKegBot for updates.

For now the keg has birch beer, but we’ll be getting a beer beer kegerator soon and will mod that one up as well! Post your feature suggestions in the comments.

  1. Have you found the beer to be foamy since installing these flow sensors? We had good luck with swissflow flow sensors but these types of sensors introduced lots of foam.
