Apologies: this article was supposed to be posted A LONG TIME AGO, but wasn’t due to a technical problem with the site.

Scott Alfter uses an Apple IIe to monitor the temperature of the fermentation process of his homebrew. Recently he’s shared some of the hardware required with other Apple II users, and even more recently has rewritten his BASIC routines for reading the interface data, and converted them to C and assembly for use with the cc65 cross-compiler. We’d love to see pictures of Scott’s hardware setup.
