Yep. Right now the fridge wants to operate at 32deg regardless of what I tell it to do. So if I can just keep it at around 45 degrees with this thing then I"ll be happy and my ale's complex character will come through a bit better at a warmer temp. And I'll save electricity.

Thanks for the post! I picked up the controller and used this thread for my new fermentation chamber. As far as I can tell from my test, it works great. Looking forward to my first brew with this thing.

Mine was shipped out yesterday.

I plan to build mine just like Android's.


Incidentally, I also acquired a refrigerator and an analog Johnson controller for free over the weekend. The Johnson doesn't do me much good right now, since I'm looking to bump up my temperatures a little.

Thanks for showing photos of the wiring and the completed project. I saw that controller last week and wondered if it would work.

Mine just arrived tonight, and I'll post pics in the next day or two when I get it all wired up.
