Once again Joshua Mesilane has brought to our attention a fascinating Arduino-controlled project - his home brewing setup. One of the critical parts of the brewing process in maintaining correct temperatures, otherwise the end product can be ruined along with the upcoming consumption events. Thus using an Arduino board, temperature sensors. and an LCD shield his system can monitor the temperature in the beer area and when it gets too warm, a system blows cold air from a chamber holding frozen water bottles into the beer area. And if the temperature in either area reaches a maximum a buzzer is sounded.
This is a great example of projects moving from the bench to real-life, so visit Joshua's website for more information and details. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
To get started with your own temperature-controlled projects, consider using our TEMP: DS18B20-based temperature sensor module:
... or our HUMID: Humidity and Temperature sensor module based on the popular DHT22 sensor unit. Both modules are fully documented and easy to get started with. These are only two of over a dozen of our sensor and outputs modules.
