Automated Beer brewing

[Randyrob] is pretty serious about their beer. So serious, that he wanted to build a fully automated system for brewing. Dubbed the Halfluck Automated Brewing System, or HABS, it is actually his first micro controller project. You can follow along on the arduino forums to get a little more information, including the source code if you should want to build one of your own. There are a few videos on his youtube channel, but unfortunately, we didn’t notice any full tours of the entire thing.

Like some others we’ve seen, this one only handles the brewing aspect, not the fermenting stages. It would be interesting to see a system that handled it all. You could fairly easily get the machine to siphon it into a keg for final carbonation too.

    I can’t believe you didn’t mention he uses a super NES controller to drive it!

    Well that is awesome! Automation of an all-grain recipe is truely wikid! There is a do-it-all machine for extract brewing here in New Zealand called the Williams Worn Personal Brewery if anyone is keen to have a looksie…

    Nice, just wish there was more details on the individual components.

    It’s also worth noting that the <a href="; BrewTroller is an open source project with similar control in mind.

    There was one years ago from Popular Science.
