We started with extract batches in the kitchen around 2007 and have slowly moved to brewing all grain batches on a Brutus 10 like platform we’ve built ourselves.
We’re a two man team with very kind and accommodating wives who don’t mind our time consuming hobby. John Moore is an electrical engineer at TZ Medical. Jarett Creason is the Director of Software Engineering at Inavero.
These hardware and software perspectives has allowed us to take some unique approaches to automating some of our brew process. We’ve designed and fabbed our own circuit board controlling relays and run it using a RaspberryPi with custom built software (BrewNinja). We’re still actively working on getting the automation built out.
