Create a Batch

Before you can start brewing you need to create a Batch by visiting http://pi-ip-address/new-batch

You’ll be presented with some fields to fill in:

  • Name – give your batch a name
  • Style – optional. Uses the current BJCP style guidelines
  • Volume – optional. Might help for tracking your batches down the track.


Here you define your brewing steps.

  • Temperature – the target temperature of this step
  • Time – the time in minutes to hold this step at the target temperature
  • Element – the element to control during this step

You can add as many steps as you need.

Once you have set up all of your steps, hit the ‘Create Batch’ button. This will create the batch and you will then see a green ‘Brew’ button at the top of the page. Click this to start brewing.
