Default STC-1000 success - thank you

I got an undercounter fridge from craigslist, an STC from ebay, and a 4 inch junction box from Home-Deposit-Your-Paycheck. The operation instructions packaged with the controller were impossible to understand, the wiring diagram was skimpy.

A quick search of HBT turned up both wiring and operating steps. No sweat. I extended the fridge 2.5 inches with wood and it fits a 7 gallon bucket.

BTW. for people looking for an enclosure, either of these work for a controller and duplex outlet:

  • 4 inch blue PVC junction box intended for conduit. Use a metallic cable clamp and drill a small hole for the sensor wire.
  • Duplex PVC junction box with a 5/8 inch extension. The extension might need a little trimming to easily fit the controller. The heavy-duty duplex PVC box does not fit.
  • Definitely use 14 gauge stranded wire, not solid wire, for connections. Much easier to stuff into the box.
Whether beer is made in waders or in a toilet tank, as long as it is fun and the brewer likes how it tastes, who cares how it is brewed?
