You can get real-time notifications should the thermostat go wild, thanks to the built-in temperature sensor and Wi-Fi connection.You have full control over batch-specific details, real-time measurements, and kegerator dashboard.

Each keg has its own dashboard, letting you type in batch-specific data, including Last Pour Size, batch name, kegging date, OG, and FG, the built-in calculator, automatically calculate the ABV%, Real-Time Tap Status.
The app automatically calculates the volume of the beer in keg. You can choose between Metric and US customary units.
Enables and monitors the CO2 mode and CO2 Bottle
If we can measure the real-time levels of beer, then we can do the same thing with CO2. Here presenting you the CO2 version of PLAATO Keg. Enable CO2-mode in the Platoo-app, and turn one of your keg-devices into your CO2-bottle monitor, checking the remaining level of gas in real-time.
Use it to have control over the remaining level of CO2 to make sure you have enough for the upcoming brew-day or use it to detect a CO2-leak from a connector. Thus, enabling your Co2 check.
Did you know that the PLAATO keg fits over 99% of all kegs? Here are a few other features you would like.
There are two leading technologies used to monitor beer kegs – load cells and flow-meters. As beer brewers, this was a natural choice. Load cells are non-invasive and maintenance-free, whereas flow-meter is invasive and needs inline cleaning. Load cells measure directly remaining beer in the keg.
On the other hand, flow-meters measure initial volume to know the remaining volume. Cells are suitable for all weight-measurements while meter is suitable for liquid.
Also, load cells have flexible placement while the latter has a stationary placement. You do have a clear winner here. With no maintenance and cleaning,
Designed to last
You will find kegs with various unique designs and different setups for the kegs. Made of impact-resistant polycarbonate body, it can withstand even the roughest environments. Don’t get fooled by the sleek design. The PLAATO keg is small, but it’s ready for a big keg full of beer. High-performance materials combined with thought-through solutions make it durable, waterproof, and ready to handle kegs up to 13 US gallons/50 L.
CO2 bottles lose mass as the CO2 is used by carbonation, tapping, or leaks. This means that by placing a CO2 bottle on top of your PLAATO keg, you will get precise estimates of the remaining level of CO2. This feature is used to detect leaks.
Most CO2 bottles fit directly onto the PLAATO keg, in just a few seconds. You can get A notification in the app if the leak is detected. PLAATO Keg is internet-connected, so you will get the notification wherever you are.

PLAATO Keg shows you pouring in real-time and notifies you INSTANTLY. It is an all-in-one system that keeps track of important aspects of your keg, including what’s left and the volume of each pour.
