Yes, there are three ways to get hold of the data.

1. You can export the data from the app and get three .csv files with the raw data.

2. You can access the data with our API, read more about that here.

3. You can connect a webhook to the device in the app. So everytime the airlock sends data it will send a packet with the data to the webhook. Read more about the webhook here.

How does plaato airlock work?

In short, the Airlock measures the co2 being produced in the fermentation and uses that to estimate the Specific Gravity.
You can read more about the science behind the PLAATO Airlock here.

Can it be used on other types fermentation?

Yes, you can use it on all types fermentations. Wine, cider, mead, moonshine - Plaato works on every fermentation you would like to try.

Does plaato airlock handle overflows?

Plaato airlock is designed to withstand overflow. Some overflows might be more violent than others so depending on each and every situations, the data might be affected: if you see a significant change in the graph, it is probably a indication that your beer is overflowing. In that case, clean the airlock, sanitize and put it back on.

What if my fermenter is not 100% airtight?

We know that not all the fermenters available on the market are always perfectly airtight. During the development of Plaato, we have been through 20+ different types of fermenters, and the average leak affects marginally. It will still measure the fermentation activity, gather and analyze data of your fermentation. In case of a major leak, the specific values will of course be a bit off - although in this case it might be better to invest in a new fermenter to avoid contamination.

How large batches does it work on?

The operational batch size is 1 - 13 US gallons/ 2 - 50L. Plaato is designed for typical homebrewer fermenters around 6.5 US gallons/ 25 liters and will work best for those. Some brewers have tried using the Airlock on batches over 13 US gallons / 50 liters and even 16 US gallons / 60 liters with good results, it is just a practical matter of much CO2 can go through the airlock. If you ferment at low temperatures, the fermentation activity will be lower and Airlock can work well on bigger batches.

can i dry hop during fermentation?

You can open your fermenter and dry hop as normal. The small amount of CO2 that escapes when the lid is taken off, only affects the measurements marginally. In addition since dry hopping normally is done during secondary fermentation, the remaining CO2 that the wort will produce is low.

Can plaato airlock be disinfected?

Yes, Plaato is 100% compatible with StarSan, bleach and other products available for disinfection. Do not use StarSan, bleach and other foamy agents in the airlock during fermentation.

does plaato airlock work in a fridge?

Yes! Plaato works until your beer freezes.
