comment How to make the best beer with arduino?
There is a brewery controller out there called Brewtroller that is a custom arduino board. It's open source hardware and software. They have a version to automate your brew process and a version to automate fermentors (like a fermenting fridge). www.brewtroller.com

comment Why is a carboy used for secondary fermentation?
@brewchez Perhaps "extraordinary" is too strong, but plastic buckets let in more oxygen over time than most other vessels. I don't mean to say you can't make great beer with them, but you should be aware. There's a great chart halfway down www2.parc.com/emdl/members/apte/flemishredale.shtml showing different oxygen permeability over time.
