  1. Yeah some of them are absurd. Anything over 9 is pushing it. There are some 11's I like, but some of these beers you have one and you feel like you just had three meals. I am originally from Adelaide and I love the pub life there. Especially during Adelaide Fringe. Damn that's a fun month. Thanks again Mark, for giving me the motivation to get my droid online. I am halfway through my first fermentation period in the droid. I will let you know how it goes
  2. In the States all the Hip Micro Breweries around the Country Can their craft beers. I remember the days where you would look down on a canned beer as garbage opposed to bottled. Unless it was my younger days where we would crush some tinnie's around back. However I guess the two major advantages to putting your beer in a can are, 1. A lot of micro breweries don't have heaps of expendable cash, so cans weigh a hell of a lot less than bottles to ship around the country 2. The US isn't taxed as high on alcohol content like Australia is. So, In Aus you don't see too many high octane beers because they are expensive. However in the US it is not uncommon to have any where between 6% - 40%. As we know beer is very volatile to light; so putting it in a Can preserves the alcohol content in some of these Higher Octane brews. Look the abv on some of the brews below. Sam Adams Utopias - 29% ABV. ... BrewDog Tactical Nuclear Penguin - 32% ABV. ... Struise Black Damnation VI, Messy - 39% ABV. ... BrewDog Sink The Bismarck - 41% ABV. ... Schorschbräu Schorschbock 42% - 42% ABV. ... Schorschbräu Schorschbock 57% - 57% ABV. ... Brewmeister Armageddon - 65% ABV. ... Brewmeister Snake Venom - 67.5% ABV. Thats Insane! Canning is a fun process to watch in the bars as a lot of pubs sell Crowlers here. They basically take a topless can shoot some Co2 in the bottom pour from the tap and use that capper shown above to cap them.
  3. Yeah, I am doing a American Pale Ale, with a Coopers Sparkling on the way. I am on the East Coast in the Appalachian Mountains. I can't wait to give it taste when its done.
  4. Everything is online. You can register your Droid on the website which gets the app going. I am currently brewing a pale ale!!!
  5. Short lived victory. Since I connected it using my laptop instead of my phone. The silly app still doesnt think its connected. So I can not configure the app. Grr. Back to the drawing board

    I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!! Mark thank you for your replies. Sadly that didn't work. However you gave me the motivation to Power through and figure it out. So to anyone who is having an issue please try the following. The instructions I was reading told me to go to manual setup then on my phone go to network settings find beerdroidxxxxxxxxxx. Connect then wait for the to sync and you will get the planet icon on the beerdroid when connected. However on my phone it drops the SSID as soon as it doesnt have internet and it would error out. So I tried on my laptop the same process and from forum diving i found something said open a browser once connected and go to http://mybeerdroid.com and input the SSID and SSID password into the splash page. This also did not work for me. However when i was trying on my phone 40 times i did notice when it said 'connected no internet' ot displayed the IP address it was giving it before the phone dropped the connection. So I tried once again on my laptop, and this time instead of inputting http://mybeerdroid.com I inputted the IP address my phone showed me earlier 192.168.1.xxx and low and behold it took me to a splash page asking me to input my SSID and SSIDs password. Once that was entered connected immediately. Mark thank you for giving me more motivation. I am annoyed at myself for not trying to use my laptop earlier, however Ladies and Gents we back in the game. To anyone having issues I would strongly suggest using a laptop rather then a phone.

  9. I Will Definitely try that when I get home! Thanks, Mate. I hope you and your family are safe from the fires
  10. Interesting. You said the 4 are already where? Does that mean it should be the last 12 of the serial number?

    I was told your WiFi Password could not contain Special Characters. Just numbers and letters. My password did have special characters. So, I changed it to something that did not contain special characters. This did not help me, however I hope maybe it can help you get connected. Enjoy Your weekend
  12. I also want to note that I am not using 802. anything for authentication. It's AES WPA2 Thank you in Advance for your Assistance
  13. Hey Mark, Thank You for the response I greatly appreciate it. I just want to give you a run down on everything I have tried so far. I am an IT Professional so I am good at troubleshooting tech. 1. Beer Droid is less than 3 meters away from the router and has excellent signal strength. 2. I select manual setup find the device in my network settings on my phone. I enter the last 8 digits of the serial (including the hyphen), the beerdroid accepts the password and on the phone it says 'Connected, No Internet'. Then on the beerdroid itself it returns a E2 Cd3 error. 3. When I try WPS it try's to connect then fails with a E2 Cd 13 error. I can't find the error code in the manual. 4. I was told my WiFi Password could not contain special characters (mine did have one). So, I changed my password to something that did not contain special characters. Powered down the beerdroid unplugged it and let it sit for 5 minutes. Powered it back on and tried troubleshooting steps 2 and 3 listed above over again with the exact same results. 5. I called my router manufacturer and we tried tweaking a couple of things listed below. Then I repeated steps 2 and 3 power cycling each time and it still can't connect. a. Disabled 5Ghz b. tried channels 1, 6, and 11 6. I then created a Guest network and limited the bandwidth to less the 54mbps and tried connecting again both manually and through WPS power cycling each time. However I still have no connection.
  14. Just an update. I just got off the phone with my router manufacturer adjusted some settings, however this did not help. I Still can not connect my BeerDroid to WiFi. What type of network cards are in the beerdroid? Any help would be greatly appreciated?
