    iSpindel - digital WiFi hydrometer

    You copy and paste the equation into the iSpindle Polynomial line, on the configuration page, when the iSpindel is in Acees Point mode. I understand, you could alternatively enter it into BrewSpy, but I never have delved into doing this.

    Best app to use with iSpindel

    I am using two devices to access Brew-spy, a Win10 laptop, running Bluestacks Android emulator and a rooted Nook with Android installed on it. Both show the correct time and date, but both show Brew-spy data in BST time.

    I have a minor issue in Brewspy and advised the author... Since the UK switched from BST to to GMT, Brewspy has continued to log in BST - or at least an hour ahead of true GMT. Anyone else noticed?

    Sorry I cannot now remember - I found a chart, with an explanation of how to do it.

    Anything you add or take away from the iSpindel after you have calibrated it, will wreck your calibration. If the rim of the PET is smooth and the cap in good condition, there should be no need for anything more to seal it. The seal is along the top edge of the PET. I have done 5x brews so far...

    I arranged calibration at every 0.010 SG, all the way up in SG from 1.000 to 1.080. Calculated by amount of water and carefully weighed sugar and compared at each step with an hydrometer. Water volume plus carefully weighed sugar, is much more accurate than using a difficult to read accurately...

    Why, that would involve disturbing the battery and having to recalibrate from scratch. A reasonable capacity and genuine 18650 has more than adequate capacity for any fermentation.

    I'm also into vaping and I bought genuine cells from a site called Torchy. He offers an extra discount to those buying for vaping. I don't know the manufacturers, he has his cells relabeled with the company name, but I have no doubt about their authenticity and genuine capacity.

    iSpindel - digital WiFi hydrometer

    That makes a lot of sense, compared to what I am seeing in the flesh. I think I said - I have never seen the iSpindel appear in my routers log, never see it in the list of connected devices, never succeeded in pinging its IP. So far as my router is concerned, my iSpindel does not exist, apart...

    My router suggest that by default, it allows a 12 hour lease.

    I also often suffered like that, my W10 laptop would sometimes come out of hibernation, listing my AP, but with zero signal strength and refusing to connect to it. The only way to get it to connect was to do a complete restart of W10. SWMBO had similar issues with her laptop. Very annoying...

    It did, once appear, but generally it doesn't appear at all - problem is it connects and disconnects very quickly. Too quickly to even be logged by my router. What I did was check its MAC in the configuration page, then add that MAC with an allocated IP.

    Similar happened to me and right or wrong I developed a theory..... At the time I had two routers/ wifi access points, the main one connected to my FTTC broadband and a second one wired via LAN to the first. Lots of items on my network, some with static IP's most relying on DHCP allocated by...

    iSpindel - digital WiFi hydrometer

    I'm using an old Nook HD+, which I rooted to install Android, to enable me to run Brewspy. It is rather slow to respond, making it difficult to find my way around Brewspy, but I will try your suggestion. I'm aware the graphs are not updated instantly, they sometimes seem to lag behind by up to...

    I think we are all agreed that the Tilt is much more of a straight forward solution, but then if we want an easy life we can buy our beer and wine ready made in a bottle. I have only tried two data display solutions, Ubidots and Brewspy. I liked Ubidots graphs, the fact that it displayed the...
