I love Oracle! I am currently a developer, interning at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory doing data quality work in their data warehouse using SQL, PL/SQL and Oracle Apex. I study M.I.S at San Jose State University, where I'll be graduating in May 2013, and I am also studying to get certified for Oracle's OCP curriculum (I am OCA as of January 2nd, 2013). My long term goal is to transition into a DBA role, but I am interested in big data/data analytics as well...

@DennyConn To fit by 8 carboys it will cost me around $1,000 for a large enough chest freezer.

@mdma I only extract brew for now, and the Northern Brewer recommended time frame is generally 2-4 weeks (with an additional 2 weeks for bottling). Are they just being overly cautious?

comment Why is counting airlock bubbles a poor method of determining whether or not fermentation has slowed down or stopped?
Do you favor a particular sensor you use which I could google and purchase?

@DennyConn I thought I worded the question well enough to avoid that accusation :) -- but yes, you are right.

Damn, I was excited to read your POC but after reading it I must admit I couldn't follow any of it. Do you happen to have a summary article you could link me to explaining the difference between conductance vs IR for this purpose? I was under the impression that those who have done this use an audio sensor to detect the bubbles. This appears to be more precise, from what I can understand.

Forgive my ignorance, but why would external or internal pressure change happen in the first place? I understand temperature changes, given its palatable nature, but do not understand the pressure issue at all.

Would it be fair to say that if I account for temperature changes, and internal/external pressure changes, then counting airlock bubbles would be precise?

comment Does any “probe” exist which can detect the gravity of wort?
Any idea on how it works?
