The maker ecosystem has flourished due to the widespread availability of common open hardware platforms and open source software frameworks coupled with the emergence of physical and virtual communities. Many of the problems EPICS solves are shared with makers. This presentation explores the potential overlap of these communities by documenting the ongoing progress of a computer controlled system for homebrewing beer, built at three Chicago makerspaces and implemented using EPICS, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino.
