Test lab notes
Brewing and BBQ have a fair amount in common—both are driven by passionate hobbyists with a hankering for something tasty. They also both take hours upon hours and require precise temperature control. That’s of course where the Tappecue comes in. The device lets you track up to 4 temperature probes (fits well in thermowells, not as effective in the pot or fermentor) with Wifi-based logging and notifications, letting you stroll away before getting a push notification that you’ve hit pre-defined temperatures. In the moment you can act on that information or later download a CSV log.
The biggest downside of the Tappecue is setting it up—the interface is pretty clunky, and you need both a smartphone and a computer involved.
