I will soon start ordering the parts for my new brew rig, which will be a single vessel electric RIMS setup, heated by two 2.4KW kettle elements. After that, the build will probably take a few months.
I need to control the two heating elements to A. Heat the strike water, B. maintain steady mash temperature and C. adjust power output for a proper rolling boil. And I want to do this from the touch screen, not from a web interface.
So should I do my build around a standard PID with a pair of SSR’s, or should I go for the BrewPI Spark?
I like the flexibility of the BrewPI, I like the logging capabilities, and being a programmer by trade, I like the open source nature of the platform.
The big question is; will the software be ready to meet my needs within reasonable time, that is within 3-6 months from now.
I guess there is no fortune tellers on this board, but a best guess would do just fine
How far is the new software from being able to meet my needs?
