Raspberry Pi–powered Setup Improves Home Brewing @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Watching gravity curves is what beer brewers do. During the beermaking process, the yeast metabolizes sugars, leaving alcohol. The process is monitored by tracking changes in When you’re making beer, you want the yeast to eat up the sugars and leave alcohol behind. Monitoring this process is all about monitoring changes in gravity. Gravity curves. A new Python-based program called Aleproof, run on a Raspberry Pi, can track these changes. Here’s more from Raspberry Pi Blog:
“We wanted a way to skip the paper and pencil and instead input the data directly into the software. Enter the Raspberry Pi! The shed is small, hot, has leaks, and is generally a hostile place for a full-size desktop computer. Raspberry Pi solves our problem in multiple ways: it’s small, portable, durable (in a case), and easily cooled. But on top of that, we are able to run the code using PyCharm, enter data throughout the brewing process, and fix bugs all from the shed!”

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
