Your ears become attuned to the regular “Plop… plop… plop” sound they make, and from their interval you can tell what stage you have reached. [Chris] automated this listening for fermentation bubbles, placing a microphone next to his airlock and detecting amplitude spikes through two techniques: one using an FFT algorithm and the other a bandpass filter. Both techniques yielded similar graphs for fermentation activity over time. He has a few ideas for improvement, but notes that his system is vulnerable to external noises. There is also an ...
