Make sensors show up in /sys/bus/w1/devices ?

Hi, I recently purchased a 1 wire PI to run 3 DS18B20 sensors at a distance of 15M. The sensors show up when I open http://localhost:2121/ in the web browser so it seems that everything installed correctly. I have a specialty brewing program that reads DS18B20 sensors from the directory /sys/bus/w1/devices

Is there a way to make the detected sensors show up in that directory for the program to read like they do when using the GPIO 4.7k resistor bitbang method strait to the RPI3?

Thanks if you can help!

It may be possible to set the path for the 1 wire device in the /etc/owfs.conf file. There is a parameter called mountpoint which is normally set to /mnt/1wire but it should be possible to change it to /sys/bus/w1/devices
