WiFi Connected Airlock: Analyze & Monitor Homebrew

For the first time you can get deep insight in the fermentations of your beer. PLAATO Airlock optically measures the fermentation activity of any brew and lets you know when the fermentation starts, and when the fermentation is complete.

 

Measures Fermentation Activity

Get insight into the fermentation activity of your brew. Know when your fermentation starts and ends.

Measures Temperature

Know the ambient temperature of your brewing environment. Learn how the temperature affects the fermentation.

Estimates Specific Gravity

Always get an up to date estimate of the current gravity of your brew. Know when the brew is at the target FG.

Always connected 

Get remote access to your ongoing fermentation. Know how the fermentation is doing from wherever.

 

The science behind the PLAATO Airlock 

PLAATO Airlock is the first brewing product that uses the relation between CO2 and fermentation to non-invasively estimate Gravity, Fermentation activity and Alcohol content. By knowing the rate of CO2-release, PLAATO Airlock can estimate the Specific gravity and alcohol content of the brew. Understanding the delicate and yet versatile processes behind brewing is key to unlock its amazing potential, and produce great products with high repeatability, quality and integrity. A complete brewing process consists of several complex biochemical processes, whereas in Plaato, we focus on the fermentation stage.


Monitor your brew from anywhere with The Plaato App 

With the Plaato App you are able to monitor the fermentation of your brew from anywhere in the world. This gives you time for other things and peace of mind knowing everything is going as it should with you brew.

  • Free app for both Android and iPhone    
  • Handle multiple devices at the same time    
  • Follow the fermentation of your brew from start to end    
  • Access your data from anywhere

 

 

 

The world's first fermentation analyzer 

For the first time you can get deep insight in the fermentations of your beer. PLAATO Airlock optically measures the fermentation activity of any brew and lets you know when the fermentation starts, and when the fermentation is complete.

These parts of the PLAATO Airlock should be cleaned and sanitized regularly: 

The Lid (A) The Bubbler (B) The Main Body (C) 

Clean the parts using normal techniques and products, including: PBW, bleach, Star San, One Step or similar. 

The Sensor Part (D) is completely separated and does not need to be cleaned. 

If cleaning is necessary due to spill, do not submerge this part, but clean it with a damp cloth.

  • Do not wash PLAATO in a dishwasher.    
  • Do not use boiling water for cleaning.    
  • IF the "Bubbler" is stuck in the "Main body", please empty out the water in the airlock, and leave it to dry for 24 hours.    
  • Do not use Star San in the airlock during fermentation, due to foam.
