The BrewBit team, Nick, Misha and Brian, are here to answer any questions you may have about BrewBit and the Model-T, their open-source wireless temperature controller.
BrewBit started out as a dream for getting more information about each brew to help make better beer every time. While the temperature controllers on the market are a good starting point, to take it a step further the team needed to have complete control of the process. Having data about every step of the way was the starting point for the Model-T. Being hackers and makers, the BrewBit guys put their heads down to design and manufacture a professional product that can still be customized by anyone who wanted.
The result of the labors was the Model-T. The system is built with the idea of a professional-quality tool that’s ready to go out of the box. No one needs to fiddle with wiring or programming, it just works.
The Model-T supports dual probes that can control one or both of the outputs, or passively collect temperature data. The BrewBit team has used it to manage the mash and hot liquor tanks during brewing, as well as a fermentation chamber and keezer at the same time.
Your data will always be available to you from BrewBit.com free of charge, or you can talk directly to the device using our open API. Since everything is open source, there are no secrets and nothing is hidden. You are provided with everything you will need to use the Model-T to its full potential.
