If you want the display, I second the advice for getting an STC-1000. They are very cheap and surprisingly easy to wire up. Even if you have almost no electrical knowledge or experience. I have one in the collar of my keezer and one in a project box controlling my ferm chamber and they work great.

If you really want the blue display going this route, you'll have to pony up for a Love. But in the end if you want to get a Johnson and put a temp reading display in the collar, go for it. It will still work just fine and look the way you want.

Can you show a picture of your Keezer with the collar and the digital readout?

When you're spending money on something like this, to me it's worth it to spend just a little more on Perlicks. Especially if you think you're just going to upgrade down the road. Never had a stuck tap once, even when I didn't pull from one of them for well over a month.

If you're feeling nervous about wiring up a controller, don't. Super easy. Plus there's endless help on these forums.

Have fun with it!
