          Great job, but I just saw video 1. where is your PI situated?
          Only arduino mega is in the box?
          Also I expected pneumatic rods holding kegs, and spear .. I made something simular where you manually connect couplers and mine washer is semi-automatic so I expected upgrade :-)

                  It's great to see the Raspberry Pi being used in more brewery projects.
                  are you saying the PBW did that, or caustic (lye, NaOH) did that? i'd be shocked if pbw managed to eat plastic....


                  and to the OP, yes, interested here.

                        My version

                        Just what I put together
                        It was a lot of work but definitely worth it.
                        Enjoy
                        Arduino based

                          Are there any details of these DIY Arduino washers anywhere to be found? I'd really like to build one of these.

                              Truly commercial Arduino keg washer

                              I'll share what I have but time is limited since we are opening in under a month.
                              Here's what it will take
                              Platform / stainless etc
                              Arduino
                              Power supply 28vdc
                              Pump 120 or 240
                              Ssr
                              Solenoids
                              Pipe ( lots of it)
                              Tons of fittings
                              Etc etc
                              I'm happy to share the code which took me two month to perfect
                              We waist 2 gallons of water for 4 kegs cleaned. ( I think that's pretty good) but trying to get it down further.
                              You don't need two heater only one for caustic
                              Keep away from brass ( swapping to stainless as we speak)
                              It cost me about $1500 total and that's keeping busy on eBay Amazon and CL.
                              All I can say is look closely at all three videos and get ready to be focused.
