Congratulations to Tom, his idea for a nano-brewery data logger scored him a chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield:
FREE BEER. I would like to build a data logging controller for my electric HERMS nanobrewery. Mash and liquor temperature will be subject to PID control using forks of Brett Beauregard’s PID and autotune libraries that I have ported to C. I am planning radio enabled thermometry using DS18B20/NRF2401 modules. A wifi connection would be ideal to log sensor data and actions directly to a website and tweet alerts when temperature/timer controls are reached or human intervention is required. Dangerous Prototypes personnel are welcome round for an ale or two. :)
Thank you to Microchip and Digilent for another free swag.
