Tweeting beer temperature sensor

Today’s post will be all about my idea for a tweeting beer temperature sensor!

Few weeks back I started brewing my own beer. It was really great fun and I plan to make some more, in fact my next batch will be a lovely vanilla infused stout.

When reading about brewing stout, I’ve found out that it needs a fairly high fermentation temperature of around 21C. I thought that the best way to keep my beer at this temperature, would be to use a fish tank heater! Dedicated beer heating equipment can be really expensive, so I am planning to stick the fermentation vessel in a nice, warm water bath which will be monitored by the tweeting beer temperature sensor!
