Apparently you're not supposed to clean this thing in PBW or it will crack the threading of the plastic housing. I did not know this because it doesnít state this in the instructions it came with, you have to look it up on the product facts page. After my first brew, my tilt was caked in yeast, so my normal cleaning practice was to soak it in oxi clean (which technically is not listed as something to not use for this product), and after only 30 min in the solution it cracked. Leaks now. Worst investment ever.
I've used the Tilt for 2 fermentations. So far so good. I use an old smartphone to pair with. My fermentation chamber is my keezer in the garage. My wifi is good there. I just placed the old phone a few feet from the keezer. I use plastic fermentors. I didn't have any issues with the Tilt communicating with the phone for logging. I did not move the phone to see how far it could go before weak signals. My complaint is with the phone app. It has to be running and the phone can't lock/sleep so phone screen is on 24/7 for the duration of the ferment. The charting/logging is great feedback to better understand fermentation profiles. I'm debating on buying a 2nd one as I typically don't brew more than one batch at a time.
I love this thing, I've been eyeballing it for a while. Happy I finally bought it. Only complaint is there is next to no directions out of the box. They pretty much just say turn it on, but when you pull it up on the app there's so many different options and fields that you need to adjust. Did not have much of an idea what I was doing. Finally, I think, have it where it needs to be. Overall great product, crappy directions.
I can't believe I survived without one of these.
This hydrometer is amazing. Although I have only used it 2 times, it has been great to monitor the fermentation and determine at what point to transfer. It has also been good to monitor the temperature of the fermentation. Spendy, but durable and I am sure it will help me to be more accurate about when fermentation is complete. Simple to set-up and get readings with my phone.
