Yeah... thinking that would have been easier... and cheaper. My multi-unit instance installation no worky. Will try again tomorrow.

Are you at the point of connecting the BrewPi's to the RaspPi? Check /var/log/apache2/error.log (I hope that's right, I can't connect to mine right now), it could be that permissions are wrong on the BrewPi instance log files and the user_something_config file (you'll see in the error logs).

tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log will continually show you new log entries as you debug.

That was a problem I ran into (not sure if I caused it, missed a step or it's just not documented).

Yes, but something is wrong with the LAMP install. Really baffled and letting that sit until I have the time to really focus on it. I need to troubleshoot it. Apparently the permissions script doesn't work properly with the dual device installation without modification.

On the plus side, my Linux chops are coming back, if slowly.

I think when they went to "jessie" it fucked everything since jessie uses different permissions and adds a html folder to the var/www/

I think the instructions where written for wheezy.

Yeah, I ran into that...I just installed into the HTML folder and manually fixed permissions. mcrispen, if you want to do a remote session sometime soon I can log in and get you fixed up.

But that is exactly it, I think it's in the multi-device FAQ, the script doesn't work as is.

Any luck with this?

I poked at it earlier this week. No luck.

I have been wrapped up writing, releasing some mead articles, planning for some brewing, and getting a few batches in before NHC. Once I get back - will reset and see what happens. Worst case, and this might be the easier solution is to get the R-Pi running on one unit, clone it and setup a second R-Pi. I should have done more research I guess before buying the new BrewPi. I hope he releases a patch that enables it to stand alone on wifi.

Anyone tried to finish a top fermented beer with lager yeast? The idea is to push out the "inhaled" air into the headspace during cooling. Tried this now, with a tripel that went from 1075 to 1010, and cooled it during 24 hours from 25C to 6C, and added an active 2L starter (1060) with WLP838 and a couple of grams of Northern Brewer.

Duvel does cold conditioning, and I've heard they use a lager yeast in secondary, but if so, don't know if it has anything to do with this.

It's definitely on my list to try. Any time you can get the yeast to scavenge oxygen and naturally leave sulfites in the finished beer, the more stable it will be.

This is why I want to try bottling prior to final gravity.
