Coming soon: Digital wireless hydrometer and thermometer
Okay so this should give ever homebrewer a serious boner (well, unless your a woman). This has the potential to be serious game changer for the homebrewing community. Imagine having a full-time submersed hydrometer and thermometer in you fermenter constantly giving you feedback on the status of your fermentation. You can watch your gravity drop by the hour/day throughout the process. This all feeds into an app that gives you detailed notes on your brewing process making it all that much easier to figure out what went wrong, or right.
Right now, it is a Kickstarter project with a buy-in of $120 for an early model. But they have working versions so a production model shouldn’t be too far off. They’re only about $6,000 away from their funding goal with almost a month to go. I’m tempted to buy-in now but it is probably prudent to watch how this evolves. Check it out and see what you think. It definitely has my attention and I will be following it closely.
