BrewMonitor: Real-Time, Comprehensive Fermentation Monitoring

Discover New Levels of Control and Success with Data-Driven Fermentation

Craft Brewing Tools: BrewMonitor

The BrewMonitor® System, from Precision Fermentation, is a real-time, end-to-end fermentation monitoring and analysis solution, that is purpose-built to enable brewers to increase quality and profitability through greatly enhanced fermentation-process control. The BrewMonitor System brings the “Internet of Things” (IoT) to the brewing process by collecting fermentation data from your existing tanks, and streaming it to your PC, tablet or smartphone, in real-time.

The BrewMonitor System's pre-built dashboards transform your fermentation tanks into a powerhouse of insight that finally puts brewing control into your hands – ensuring brewed-product quality, increasing your production options, and saving you time and money.

“Detecting problems earlier with BrewMonitor can save us up to a couple of days in tank time. And this is really important to us because every day and hour matters.”

Rob Qualls

Head Brewer, City Built Brewing Company

“No more Saturday and Sunday gravity readings! BrewMonitor really has saved me a ton of time. Now it’s pretty rare that I run to the brewery on a Saturday or Sunday at all, so that’s my favorite thing.”

Denver Smyth

Owner/Head Brewer, Western Red Brewing

“A lot of the nuances of keeping a flagship beer ‘on-brand’ heavily depend on how consistent you can be…. Overall, it’s about hitting the same numbers at the same times. If you do not have real-time fermentation data, then you’re always going to be shooting in the dark.”

Whit Baker

Brewmaster, Bond Brothers Beer Company

“Seeing past fermentation results side-by-side with BrewMonitor really helps with dialing in our core brands. Unexpected benefit – I’m actually getting more sleep since I can see that my fermentations are on track instead of the worry keeping me up at night.”

Luke McGuire

Head Brewer, Spiral Brewery

“What I really love is that with BrewMonitor I can just pop up my phone anytime and see what’s happening with my fermentation. Watching the gravity trends is really important to me, plus monitoring pH and fluid temperatures — it is all so helpful. BrewMonitor is just a great tool for what I do.”

Rob Qualls

Head Brewer, City Built Brewing Company

“When you start getting maxed on production, one or two days of additional tank time can be a lot. At the end of the year this adds up to an additional full turn in a tank. And that’s a huge deal, really. That’s probably the biggest production bonus that I’ve seen. If BrewMonitor can help me push an extra batch per year from a tank, that’s a thousand gallons of beer, which is about $20,000, wholesale. That’s a big number for us.”
