BrewPi Spark v2 Setup


#1

Hi everyone,

I am hoping that somebody can point me in the right direction re. the configuration and setup of my BrewPi setup.

I have the following Setup:

  • BrewPi Spark v2 w/Photon running 0.4.3 Firmware
  • Raspberry pi 3
  • 2x SSR, 10 Amp SS Relays running Heating/Cooling
  • Fridge - Converted commercial Pepsi fridge
  • Heater - 25w Pet Heater

I have no problem turning the compressor on/off manually and cooling in Test Mode but cannot get this to work in any other mode. The BrewPi indicates that it is in “cooling mode” but the relay is not turning on.

Thoughts?

  • Did you assign your devices in advanced settings -> device manager?
    You should set up a chamber heater and chamber cooler.

  • Did you apply a fridge setpoint? Or a beer setpoint?

I also recommend updating your firmware by running our update script.

Thanks for the quick response!

I setup the temp probes and SSR’s as follows:

That all looks correct. On the home page under the chart, choose beer or fridge constant, pick a temperature and click apply.
