. One amp is more than you need, but you can't get much cheaper than the one you found regardless of the current.
I actually found a old 12v that was used for a comcast cable modem or something...
So I think I am heading back to the drawing board here.. not really sure what to do.. I was thinking having the cooling coils in the actual fermentation chamber would give me the most accurate temperatures.. and at the end of the day, that is what I am most concerned about.
I want to keep the bottles cool during their bottle conditioning, but fermentation is the top priority ( I can always store the bottles elsewhere),. And I think if I cool the top chamber, it will be much easier to draw air from there into the lower chamber and keep the top chamber at the most accurate temperature.
This way, Ill have the STC-1000 operate both the compressor and the fan and that should keep both chambers at the same temperature.
