Here’s the image that you get on your phone or other device when you check the Tilt gravity reading. The temperature is valid to a degree or two. I see that they have upgrade the Tilt to improve temperature accuracy. They have also raised the price to 135.00. It is expensive.
It’s possible to automatically log your fermentation temps and gravity but I haven’t figured out how to do that yet.
I really like the Tilt.

That's pretty cool. I know that most of my beers are done in 3-5 days at this point, but it would be really interesting to actually SEE that data over time.

Right now I’m trying to lower the FG of a Stout that I brewed by adding Notty. I can just walk over to my fermentation keg and get a reading in seconds. Because the keg is stainless steel the Bluetooth connection is weak.
If I use a plastic fermenter I can be watching TV in another room and check the gravity on my phone.

The same way that I sometimes enjoy watching a blowoff tube or airlock, I would likely stare at the screen and keep refreshing it just to see if I could watch it drop .001 in real-time!

Banjo-guy, just when I thought I didn't want to buy anything else, you posted this. :) I like it and could see where it could be very useful. I have a 1.050 beer in the fermenter now that I brewed last Sunday and pretty sure it is done, but haven't pulled a reading yet, maybe tomorrow. But with that I could know with out opening it up and pulling a sample..

I know exactly what you are going through! Every time that I think I’m done buying equipment something else turns up that looks really cool.

This looks pretty slick. But is it accurate? Have you tested it's accuracy by comparing the reading to an actual hydrometer reading?

I compared to my Hydometer today and they were exactly the same.

If I didn't need to buy 3 of those for what I do, I'd like them. If anyone sees a 3 for the price of one deal I want in.
