How much water did you have by the time you finished?

Sorry, last question. Started to calibrate this evening then realised I didn't have enough sugar but wanted to see how things looked. In my 3 litres of water I added 50g of sugar which brought my SG to 1.84.

How do I convert this into the 1.0xx format in the software (or 1,xxx as has been previously mentioned)?

Is 1.84 the equivalent to 1.008?

Just finished calibration. Does this look about right? Feeling really out of my depth here. Still have no idea what the SG is going on about with those values.Image

Well I've been sat on the pc all weekend so far, poring over all the instructions, excel graphs, bags of sugar and buckets of water.
I've activated office, joined Github, registered with ubidots. I've entered my formula, tried to create a "variable" and am still no closer to getting a readable sg.
The graphics in the Github instructions don't even look like what I'm getting in ubidots
Are there any simple instructions out there? What did those of you who have got theirs working do exactly?

I might just chuck it in as is, and when it stops tilting I'll know fermentation has finished (or stuck), which is basically what it's for isn't it?
What is rssi and interval? Why do we need these figures?
Anyone else struggling with this, or am I just thick.

I can see one drawback with it even if you do manage to configure it properly, The parts slide up and down inside the tube pretty easily with the slightest movement, altering the tilt. If you jam it into the tube as far as it goes there's no way to press the reset button.

You're not alone, I've had all sorts of problems!! I'm pretty much their now though. I'm currently away with cadets but I'll do a full write up later as to what I did and how I overcame a lot of the problems. One of the biggest issues was understanding the gravity read out once calibrating - the units are in Plato - took me ages to figure that out.

I'll try and pen something over the weekend to help as a sort of 'Guide for Dummies'
