  1. After Registration, select "Bricks" in the menu on the left (see 1 in the picture).

  2. Hit the blue "Add Brick" button in the top right corner.

  3. Select "iSpindel" in the popup and copy the displayed API key into your clipboard.

  4. Now open the configuration portal of your iSpindel (by pressing reset multiple times, see portal for more info).

  5. Select "Bricks (free & easy)" as service (see 2 in the image).

  6. Paste the api key from your clipboard into the "Token/ API key" field and hit the blue save bottom at the bottom.

  7. Now go back to bricks.bierbot.com and select "Equipment" in the menu on the left (see 3 in the image).

  8. Create a new device (blue button, top right corner), select "Fermenter" in the popup.

  9. Now assign the gravity sensor from the iSpindle to the respective field of your fermeter by drag & dropping - the respective target dropzone on your fermenter will be highlighted green to guide you. You can do the same for your temperature sensor, but this is optional.

  10. Hite "Save".

  11. To start recording, we will also need a recipe. Go to "Recipes" on the left and create a recipe. You only need to setup one (dummy) fermentation step. Save the recipe and go back to the list of recipes. Start your recipe by clicking the orange play button. Read more about how to start a brew here: Automatic mode.
