Hi, no, just an older iPad. Support suggests the screen may go off, but I thought it by default stays on when an app is active?
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
If the screen goes of it will no longer report data. I don't think they wrote the app that way. I had to manually set my iPad to not go off.
Atle Dale
@atledale_twitter
yes, I set the Ipad to always be on. I guess this is what you are thinking of. Trying a different iPAD now. I suspect somehow the battery is too weak to transmit, although it still works when I look at the screen.
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
is the app always front and center too?
if you leave the app to go do other things on the iPad it won't report data from the background
Atle Dale
@atledale_twitter
no, the ipad is dedicated for this. The new ipad would not even send that first update.
using the Google integration setup described by Tilt.
Hold on...Just found the mistake. After som many tries, I had several profiles and beer names in the Google spreadsheet. The first two didn´t work (including beerstat.us), but the proper Google spreadsheet setup described by Tilt, worked!
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
BrewStat.us requires the tilt to have the correct color assigned and pointed to the url that's listed under the Devices / Tilt section. Beer Name doesn't matter
Atle Dale
@atledale_twitter
yes, is working now. Which method do you use?

What is the name of your brew?

Quick question, what's the API/format for posting to brewstat.us?
Nathan Anderson
@nanderson
never mind, I think I see the format in previous chatter here: SG=1.000&Temp=70.0&Color=RED&Timepoint=42807.675429166666&Beer=My%20Beer%Name&Comment=Sample%comment
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
Yup, that's correct, make sure you specify a color, that's the big thing
Nathan Anderson
@nanderson
What is the format of the Timepoint field?
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
It's an OLE Automation Date - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OLE_Automation
Nathan Anderson
@nanderson
Awesome, thank you so much. I'm toying around with a fork of pytilt that can handle multiple outputs including mqtt, http to brewstat.us etc.

@rlightner any luck on the bulk deletes? wanted to clean up a few where my tilt ran outside the keg and generated noise. However, it's about 40 events so takes a very long time to do with single deletes at the end of the last page.
Jim Thompson
@jimpdx
@rlightner my suggestion is to allow the user to change the END DATE of the brew (when done) then simply delete all readings AFTER that date. You could avoid having to create some bulk delete interface. Ideally just a quick prompt like "Would you like to delete any readings outside the brew dates?"
WarnockAir
@WarnockAir_twitter
@jimpdx that is a great idea for sure. simple also.
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
I've been focusing on the rewrite of the site, so these small things have fallen off the radar. I'll try and get some progress on them and take a break from the rewrite.

I think this is a great idea!
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
ya saw that, very good idea from @jimpdx I wonder if people actually use Start/End Dates, I'll have to check the data
Any going to HomeBrew Con in Portland?
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
OK pushed out a release that allows bulk deleting of rows
bconfer
@bconfer
@rlightner I just exported an excel CSV file and I'm wondering what the 2 "Brewometer" columns refer to. The first is a four digit number that doesn't change. The second is a 7 digit number that counts up.
Jim Thompson
@jimpdx
@rlightner definitely will be at Homebrew Con (I am President of the Oregon Brew Crew and we will have a big presence at Club Night!). Re: deleting rows, the only complaint I have is that after you delete, it takes you back to the first page. I am most often trying to delete the oldest readings so having it stay on the last page (or the one just prior) would be more useful and save some frustration. But this is still a huge help :thumbsup: :beers:

Hey guys, new user with a possible dumb question. When setting up my first real brew, I had selected the 'Private' box with the intent of keeping the process from being viewed publicly. I see I now have 20ish views of my brew. Does the 'Private' box not do what I think it does or is it not functioning correctly?
Auwen
@Auwen
Is it possible that you are those 20 views? @Maelos134
Maelos134
@Maelos134
Potentially? When viewing the map, it shows people from different regions, so unless the GPS polling is off, I would doubt that I am ALL the views.
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
looks like the robots.txt is not excluding private brews, I'll be fixing that soon

@rlightner Back in last August you suggested to add "hiding recipes from the "share" feature." Has this feature been implemented? I'd love to share my fermentation progresses, but sometime I'd like to hide actual recipes.
Raine Lightner
@rlightner
Sorry been on vacation over in Copenhagen. That feature hasn't been released yet. The new UI will be coming out in the next couple weeks. I'll post some previews when I get home tonight.

Sorry, had a very small outage this morning.. switching some code paths over to a new caching provider and the connection strings didn't update. no data was lost as far as I can determine.

Hello, how do I stop the units defaulting to imperial every time I log in. Even the share with metric units link defaults to imperial. And you cannot manually change to metric while viewing on a mobile device (iPhone). Thanks.
I did send an email via the brewstat site.

Hi,is it possible to edit raw data from tilt hydrometer in brewtats?
namelessone667
@namelessone667

hi, I get the error page when logged in, (Uh Oh! Something Really Bad Happened
Either we're really busy or you've discovered a bug in our software. We're sorry about that.

You can try again by refreshing the page.)

do you have an outage?

Some Tilt Pi feedback:

@fredsparkle

Some Tile Pi Feedback:

Use the HDMI version of the firmware even if you are not attaching a monitor to the Pi and interact with it as web server.

Besure to visit the system menu page and do a "UPDATE APP(FLOW)" if the version number is not 2.1 or greater.

On the logging page:

  1. Turn off "Use default cloud URL for all".
  2. Turn off "Start Logging to the cloud".
  3. Set the beer name entry (might not be needed)
  4. Set the "Cloud URL" to link displayed on the "Tilt™ Hydrometer Devices" page
  5. Turn off "Start Logging to the cloud".
opps step five is turn on "Start Logging to the cloud".
fredsparkle
@fredsparkle
Tilt Pi only reports if it is on the "Tilt Pi" page, so be sure to select that after editing on the logging page.

Hi, Raine. I notice that my Tilt sends gravity readings to three decimal places, and Brewstat uses them without problem, but if I edit a temp in the edit Tilt data feature, it drops the last digit and replaces it with a zero. For example, if I change an SG to 1.052, the spreadsheet saves it as 1.050. It will show all Tilt-generated numbers to all three decimal places, in both the dashboard and on the chart, but any edited SGs always show a zero for that last digit. I sometimes need to do this when I start fermentation, but am not able to set up the brew on brewstat until later after the gravity has dropped a bit from its original reading. I like to change the first recorded temp to what it actually was. This, of course, makes a funky chart, but it gives a more accurate ABV reading. Btw, as far as I can recall, it's always done this. Thanks for the great site and all the work you do on it! Cheers, Steve
