Hands on Review: Kegtron Smart Keg Monitor!

Kegtron Smart Keg Monitor

Let’s face it, some homebrew gear is purely a luxury item. You’ll hear people ask, “Yeah, but how does that make your beer better?” Sometimes you can rationalize your flashy gear because it allows your brew process to be more repeatable, or take less time. Kegtron doesn’t make your beer taste better, it doesn’t improve your brew process, and it doesn’t make your brew day faster. But it’s something more than just brewery bling.

When I first saw the Kegtron keg monitor, it seemed just like a silly way to part homebrewers from their money. It looked cool, but it definitely didn’t seem like something I’d get excited about. And then I tried it.

Kegtron sells 2 models. One for a single tap, one for a dual. The measurement is done by some fancy digital flow meters inside the housing of the unit. There is a circuit board that keeps track of how much beer goes through the flow meters and stores that data on the board. It also has a Bluetooth transmitter that broadcasts this information to an app on your phone/tablet that you’ve paired through the app.

Since the flow meters just keep track of how much beer goes past them, you have to enter into the app how much beer you start with. You hook up your keg, tell it how many gallons are in it, and it tracks from there, deducting beers each time it measures 12 ounces has gone by. It’s customizable, so if you want to count beers by the pint (U.S. or Imperial) instead of 12 oz. bottle, you can do that. The display on the app tells you how many “drinks” are left in the keg. And since you also input to the app what size your keg is (2.5 gallon, 5 gallon, 1/2 barrel, etc.), along with telling you how many beers are left, it has a colorful graphic to show what percentage of your keg is left.

In the app, you can name each of your beers, so if you have more than one Kegtron tap being monitored, they all show up on your screen and you can keep track of each beer with its own space on your display. Since the data is stored on the Kegtron unit itself, and it uses Bluetooth to communicate to your app, if you leave the house and get out of Bluetooth range, you don’t see your beer lists. So it’s intended to be a display at home next to your kegerator, or on your phone so you can direct your underlings to run downstairs and fetch you what you want from the comfort of your couch.

Hands on Review

Kegtron provided me a single-tap unit to try out and review at home. I saw it on display at Homebrew Con in Portland, displaying a club’s list of taps and their various stages of keg emptiness. I wasn’t sure that in a less busy setting it would provide the same value. What I found was it got me excited about what I had on tap (like I needed help). It was cool watching it accurately count down the drinks with each glass filled. I have a 4-tap keezer, and I found myself gravitating to whatever I had on the tap with the Kegtron just because it was fun. After a couple weeks I found myself wanting it on all of my taps. It was just so cool, and suddenly seemingly useful to know exactly how much beer was left in each tap. I was a convert.

Hands on Review: Plaato Digital Airlock – WiFi Fermentation Analyzer for Homebrewing!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Plaato Digital Airlock

There are more products entering the market for monitoring your fermentation progress digitally, and recording the data. I’ve used a wireless digital hydrometer for a year now. Worlds are opened when you can track your gravity over time and adjust fermentation conditions based on what you see. Dry hop addition timing and fermentation temperature adjustments can be custom-tailored to each batch to make sure it reaches its best potential.

The Plaato digital airlock design principle is based on chemistry. The major resulting products of fermentation are alcohol (ethanol) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Research has shown that the change in gravity of fermenting beer is roughly proportional to the creation of CO2. To get the math to work, you start with the Original Gravity and volume of wort so you know how much total sugars are there. Then as you measure CO2, you can keep track how much of that sugar has been converted to alcohol. The team at Plaato started with this principle and then conducted a bunch of fermentations to develop the algorithm that runs in the Plaato software to track the gravity.

The digital airlock is roughly the size of a 3-piece airlock, and you fill it half-way up with water. CO2 pushes up through that water in the form of gas bubbles. The body of the Plaato airlock has a “bubble divider” that takes the blobs of CO2 and divides them into evenly sized bubbles to pass by the sensor. The airlock is actually counting the number of bubbles, not measuring the time between bubbles. In this manner, it can tell the difference between a small bubble and a large “glug”. The fermentation of 5 gallons of wort produces many hundreds of thousands of these uniform-sized bubbles to be counted.

The data is transmitted via Wi-Fi to Plaato servers, and the App on your smartphone reads that data and plots it out. It plots three things: 1) gravity, 2) running total of bubbles produced, and 3) room temperature from a sensor in the body of the airlock. The meter is powered by a standard USB cable (6 ft cable provided, you need to provide the AC/DC converter plug).

Screenshot showing manual gravity corrections

The airlock has a learning feature so if you take a gravity reading yourself during fermentation and want to adjust the reading from your Plaato, you can manually enter this. With all of this data from all of the airlocks going home to the mothership, Plaato has the ability to adjust/improve their bubble count algorithm from every customer’s fermentation.

$30 Off CoolBot Pro WiFi Enabled Walk-In Controller

CoolBot Pro Walk-In Cooler Controller (WiFi Enabled) FE636

CoolBot Pro Walk-In Cooler Controller (WiFi Enabled) via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The CoolBot Pro brings you all the great features of the standard CoolBot with added WiFi connectivity, allowing you to monitor and control your cold room from your smartphone through the free mobile app. The CoolBot Pro enables a standard air conditioner to cool a room or space down to 34°F. Easily installs with no tools or electrical knowledge required.

The CoolBot Pro comes paired with the Jumper WiFi relay module, which installs on the outside of your cold room. Once the jumper is connected to your wireless network, you can use the free mobile app to control your CoolBot from virtually anywhere with a WiFi connection. Monitor your cold room remotely, adjust temperatures on the fly, or program the app to send you notifications if something is amiss. Whether you’re on the go during a busy work week or taking some well-earned R&R, CoolBot Pro has your back!

Standard A/C units available from any hardware or appliance store have lots of power, but they are electronically restricted to not go below 60°F. This is because they would freeze up. Commercial refrigeration for walk-in coolers combat freeze with increased surface area on the fins and fans. Instead the CoolBot technology uses multiple sensors, a heating element and programmed micro-controller to control your air conditioner in such a way that the unit can go below 60°F and not freeze up. The CoolBot cannot give you 100% of the BTUs listed on your air conditioner, nor is suitable for large brewery or winery walk-ins. But it is perfect for wine cellars, beer storage, fermentation, and many other applications.

Easy to install within 30 minutes with no tools or electrical knowledge required. While we can’t tell you exactly what size space you can cool because of ambient temperatures and insulation factors, we recommend you google CoolBot. They have sold over 45,000 of these so there are lots of reviews and actual installs out there. We offer free shipping on this unit, ship fast from both coasts, and have great customer service.

This type of system is also very efficient. Most commercial systems are power hogs with large fans that are always running. Residential A/C units are made for efficiency. The CoolBot Pro will also shut down the compressor for a short time when the unit is running at its highest level of inefficiency, as it nears freeze up.

  • Trusted CoolBot technology now with WiFi connectivity and mobile app
  • Allows a standard window air conditioner to cool a room to 34°F
  • Interactive refrigeration for Brewing, Winemaking, Restaurants, Agricultural Purposes & More
  • Mobile app: remote temperature reading and adjustments, receive critical alerts, data storage and reporting
