I got real lucky a few years back. I was looking through my local scrap yard and they had about 20 of them sitting on a pallet in beat up boxes.. It was a good find.

Default peltier chiller

I can share also my experience with the same problem for cooling 30L conical fermenter.



I have used a solid state TEC peltier coler with air-water heat exchanger controlled by PID regulator
I use an internal stainless steel immersion chiller

Sorry for the delay on this guys. I ended up brewing a stout and making the fermenter unavailable to finish this. The good new is that I'll be transferring the beer tomorrow to a carboy so I can finish this!

As of right now I've been using the controller to monitor the fermenter temp : http://twitter.com/#!/OhMyGoshBrewing

Hey sorry for the delay here, been busy all summer. I ran into some snags on getting a stainless coil for inside the fermenter. Also not too much downtime for the fermenter, lots of thirsty friends lol!! Hopefully I'll have some update soon. Up until now I have been using the reporting from this controller to monitor the fermenter via twitter.

Finally! Last parts have been ordered from StainlessBrewing and I should have this running shortly. I've been stuck looking for the right stainless coil for the cooling/heating loop for a while. Stumbled onto their thread in the vendor showcase. Great guys, quick responses in email and can make exactly what I need. I should have some pictures when things show up.
