Ferment simulator upgrade

Project summary

The AWRI Ferment Simulator, originally developed by Richard Muhlack, is being updated and redeveloped into a simple and powerful web application to support winemakers in time for vintage 2017. The application will allow users across the winery to have access to ferment data wherever they are, across a range of devices.

Latest information

User interface upgrade
Work is currently under way with a web developer to design a new user interface for the system, which will be integrated into the AWRI’s WineCloud platform. The Ferment Simulator will allow users to model the impacts of temperature, nutrients, mixing and re-inoculation and identify problematic ferments quickly and take corrective action.
