[Matt] sent in a set of YouTube videos walking us through his LEGO Mindstorms controlled brewery.
To control his RIMS setup, [Matt] is using a LEGO Mindstorms brick with a few LEGO temperature sensors attached to his plumbing. The LEGO provides all the temperature and pump control for a proper RIMS setup, perfect for the homebrewer who doesn’t want to bother with an Arduino or other microcontroller board.
As a small aside, the astute Hackaday reader will note our beer hacks category is woefully underpopulated. It’s nearly summer now and the perfect time to start brewing. If you’ve got a beer hack, be sure to send it in.
After the break you can see all of [Matt]’s RIMS/LEGO brewery videos, or you can check out his YouTube channel.
