Amazon Tap – Alexa-Enabled Portable Bluetooth Speaker by Amazon

Bluetooth speakers aren’t something you see often (maybe at all) on Homebrew Finds.  HBF Reader Steve uses Amazon’s Tap as a sort of brew day assistant…

Steve Says: “I use my Amazon Tap extensively for music, conversions, ambient temperatures, timers, etc. Invaluable now to my brew days.”

Steve also points out the Hopstand Alexa skill [What is an Alexa Skill?].  Hopstand is a voice activated brix to gravity calculator.

Alexa enabled, Wi-Fi smart plugs are also available that can be used to turn items on and office using your voice in conjunction with Alexa devices.  See: TP-LINK Smart Plug, Wi-Fi, Works with Alexa, Control your Devices from Anywhere (HS100)
