Tilt Hydrometer

Drop your Tilt in the fermenter or a glass of water, go into the settings page in Brewfather APP, enable Tilt Hydrometer.

You will then get a cloud URL that you need to copy into the Cloud URL in your Tilt-app or TiltPi settings.

Then go into the Fermentation tab of your batch and click Devices. After your Tilt has done it's first logging to Brewfather it will appear in the device list.

Click the ATTACH button to make it log to this batch. Wait 15-30 minutes for your Tilt to log the next time.

Never log more than once every 15 minutes, request logged more often than that will be ignored. This is the default value of the Tilt.

If you want continous logging to Brewfather when using the Tilt App you need to keep your device active and next to the fermenter at all times, the Tilt does not log to the cloud on its own. If the devices goes to sleep it will stop logging. Setting up a TiltPi is recommended.

TiltPi Setup

The best and most stable way to log is to have a dedicated Raspberry next to the fermenter, here is how to set up a TiltPi. We recommend a Raspberry Pi Zero W + MicroSD 8GB + Micro USB charger. Video instructions for TiltPi setup.

  1. Access the TiltPi via the browser

  2. Select TILT color

  3. Paste your Cloud URL from Brewfather settings page

  4. Time interval 15 minutes or more

  5. Enable start logging to the cloud

  6. Make sure "Use Default Cloud URL for All" is OFF.

  7. Attach in batch in Brewfather

Enter a comment and click enter, to make the TiltPi send a logging request right away.

If you have issues with getting the TiltPi to log, try restarting it by removing the power and putting it back in, then start from 1.

(optional) use TiltBridge instead of TiltPi: https://github.com/omgitsads/tiltbridge/tree/brewfather

More details below. There is also a video guide in Norwegian for TiltPi+Tilt Hydrometer.

TiltBridge Setup

TiltBridge is an alternative small and cheap device you can set up instead of a TiltPi. Read more on the following page:

TiltBridge Setup

Attach to Batch

After the Tilt has done its first logging to Brewfather, it will appear in the device list located in your Batch > Fermentation > Readings > Devices. Click on the Devices button and attatch your Tilt to the batch. The next time your Tilt logs, it will show up in your batch!


Multiple devices

Having multiple Tilts logging to Brewfather is simple, just set them all up logging to the same URL and make sure they have different colors.

If your device support https you can also replace http with https in the logging URL.
