Two Raspberry Pi Deals (for temp control, automation, Digital Kegerator & more)

Raspberry Pi can be used for many different things.  Some projects for homebrewers include… Putting together a temperature controller, brew system automation and control and putting together a digital tap list for your kegerator using something like RaspberryPints.  That project can be completed with or without flow meters to track pints served and beer remaining.

Got a great homebrewing related Raspberry Pi Project?  We’d love to share the details with your fellow homebrewers.  Email us the deets.

On to the two deals…

Back in Stock: GigaYeast Double Pitch Vermont IPA Yeast – Conan Strain

Availability on this has been touch and go.  The last two times I’ve posted on GigaYeast’s Double Pitch IPA Strain it has gone out of stock in relative short order.  It’s available again as of this posting.  Put together a $59 order and it ships for free.

GigaYeast's Vermont IPA Strain

From the product description: “The Vermont IPA strain from Giga has a strong, growing following if you search the web. The problem is the supply has not been able to keep up with demand. MoreBeer! worked with Giga to get all they could produce and was able to offer this product via mail order for the first time.”

Some Heady Topper clone recipes suggest this yeast.  Although the official description doesn’t say this… many believe that this is the Conan strain of yeast.

This is a double pitch (200 Billion cells) pouch.  Read more about that and this strain on the product page.
