This on anybody's radar? I'd love to build two or three.

tldr: Opensource electronic/wifi hydrometer that floats in your fermenting beer and sends gravity and temperature wirelessly. Under $30 to construct.

Big thread over at HBT. they just put up the English docs at github a few days ago. The "Tube" they use to hold all of the guts won't fit inside a carbo and it's hard to find the right size Tube. They just included the code so it will run with CraftBeerPi

Well that kills it for me.

Anyone have a 3d printer to print the "drawer"?  Or am I missing where I can buy it from?

I'd be interested in building one or two.

They just came out with a PCB for the Ispindel over at HBT. You could knock one out in a couple of hours with the new board.

Check your local library. I had mine printed at the local library for a couple of bucks.

Could you use an old White Labs yeast tube for this?

Not large enough to fit the Wemos D1 mini in.
