PLAATO is a reinvented airlock that monitors your ongoing fermentation, sending the key parameters directly to your phone.
PLAATO lets you:
- Monitor the fermentation activity
- Measure the ambient temperature [°F/°C]
- Estimate the Specific gravity and alcohol content [°Oe, %w/w]
● WiFi-connection - Access and share your data from wherever you are, using the PLAATO-app.
● Versatile - Works on beer, cider, wine and all other alcoholic fermentations.
● Replaces your ordinary airlock - Simply switch to PLAATO, and monitoring will
● Real time access to data - During the fermentation, you have access to the
essential parameters in real-time, giving you an unique insight of how different strains of yeast work, how temperature affects the rate of fermentation and much more.
● Export data - Understand the unique data generated from each batch, and use the information to compare techniques and taste, and increase you understanding of whats going on.
How PLAATO works
Plaato measures continously the flow of CO2 from the fermenter, and knows at any time the total amount of CO2 that has been generated by the fermentation.
Since the fermentation process generates equal amount of CO2 and ethanol, Plaato can use this data to estimate the Specific Gravity (SG), alcohol percentage and quantify the fermentation activity.

Good, but a few bugs to fix & features to add
First, using this with the PLAATO Keg (which is pretty great), not the airlock.
Pairing is easy enough if you’ve ever use any other IoT/connected device.
App design is sleek and mostly intuitive and easy to navigate. I agree with the reviewer TJ$$ before that it would be nice to have some better tracking of averages, month over month use, etc. The graph now (of temp, volume, and pours) over time is useful, but doesn’t list days, or give ability to see usage/month etc. I’m sure it’s something that can be added at some point.
Only real issue I’m having now is the notifications stopped coming through my phone. I’ve double checked iPhone notification settings, and to be sure, uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still not getting the notifications.
Either way, solid app to go with cool keg monitoring. I know it’s a small firm so I’m excited to see them grow and continue to add features and fix bugs. Overall, it’s a great start, keep pushing forward PLAATO team.
Good design; a bit buggy
I give this app 4 stars bc it’s a great design but still has some bugs to work out with PLAATO keg. Mine keeps reverting back to metric units and changes my max keg weight - so I have to constantly redo my settings. I hope that in future release the notifications will also be in “US Standard” when set up that way. I’d also like to see a better way to see how much beer is poured (total) based on day, week, month, etc. And would be awesome to see it tracked over time, comparing month to month - similar to exercise apps. Hey, drinking beer is one form of exercise.
The airlock and app work great together! The app was easy to set up and is simple to navigate. The system takes the guess work out of fermentation and helps turn around brews faster than ever with less risk if contamination.
