You know, I have been meaning to post about this for 6 months or so, and haven't. I built a fermentation chamber and have an analog johnson controller (can't recall the model). The numbers are way off, like by 5-10 degrees. Meaningless, like you said.
Is this the norm with these controllers? I just use a thermometer to check the beers temp to help dial in the right setting...so it works, but man are those numbers useless. I thought I just had a bum unit.
Other than that, the unit works great and keeps a steady temp.
