Getting Started


Toggle on devices like a Tilt, Plaato, iSpindel, and Custom Streams to stream fermentation data. After the fermentation session turning off the device will stop reporting to Brewer's Friend. You can also edit the device and deactivate it.


Notifications can be set for temperature and gravity. Email, Text Message and Slack notifications are available for groups.

Device settings can be found here, https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/profile/device_settings

Fermentation Chart

The fermentation chart is populated from Brew Log entries or from device data streams.

View Options

You can change the chart period with the Days drop down. You then click the arrows left or right of the days to pan backwards or forwards through time.


You can export readings in CSV or JSON.


You can edit brew log entries under the Brew Log tab but not in the chart. You can however edit any entries that were sent from devices in the edit view.

Annotation readings will show up as cards underneath the chart and are great for marking mile stones like cold crashing or dry hopping. Your comment will also appear in the card.
