Integrated Hardware-Software System Leverages IoT Technology to Provide Continual Visibility into Live Beer Fermentations, Offering Brewers Dramatic Gains in Product Control, Operational Efficiency and Cost Savings
Durham, North Carolina – August 13, 2018 – Precision Fermentation, a leading biochemistry technology solutions provider, announced today the release of its new product, the BrewMonitor System, a groundbreaking fermentation monitoring solution for the craft beer industry. BrewMonitor offers brewers a new paradigm for fermentation management and product quality assurance, replacing ad hoc sampling and testing with a fully automated, live-streamed fermentation monitoring process. The system enables regional craft brewers, microbreweries and brewpubs to leverage fully data-driven fermentation to expand artistic horizons, ensure excellent product quality and deliver maximum value to the business.
“There has never been a way to unlock the vast amount of information contained in the moment-to-moment interaction of yeast and wort inside the fermentation tank,” said Daniel Kulenic, CEO of Precision Fermentation. “BrewMonitor makes this a reality, and the value of streaming fermentation data to any PC, tablet or smartphone is immense. The benefits range from cost savings via remote monitoring and accurate fermentation completion, to understanding the exact conditions required by each flavor profile, to easily assessing yeast health before major problems arise. It is an operations powerhouse, and we are excited to offer these industry-first capabilities to craft breweries of all sizes.”
BrewMonitor X-1 is a proprietary hardware device, retrofitted to existing fermentation tanks. It contains a multi-sensor array that reports real-time data via the cloud. This device offers continual high-density sampling without manual intervention.
BrewMonitor Console is a web-based fermentation monitoring application, enabling instant views and trends to track current conditions, benchmark results, manage the fermentation process, and operate the X-1 device. Features:
- Fully SaaS-based – no software to install, easy to deploy
- Access tank status anytime, from any PC, tablet or smartphone
- Monitor all tanks across multiple physical locations, from a single console
- Access historical insights for benchmarking and R&D
- Operate device cleaning protocols with SmartClean Manager
