best option [...]...

I've been using an STC-1000 temperature controller on my ferm chamber for a couple of months.
It works great, but I found an odd problem that might affect people who live in areas that get

A program like Bru'n Water enables the brewer the opportunity to evaluate how mash thickness
may affect mash pH and the subsequent beer.Thanks Martin. I've download Bru'nWater, and I think
this will h...

How much does mash thickness affect the outcome? BeerSmith seems not to calculate this. Perhaps

Has anyone had any problems with the STC-1000 temperature controller?I'm still deciding whether

If you want a cheap and effective way to make sure that you don't have the same problem next
year, or even later this winter, get an STC-1000 and follow Misplaced Canuck's build thread.The

Yes, I'm sure it did. I made that thing about 5 years ago, so I don't recall exactly. I've got
another one still in the box, I'll take a look later. Now I see that they are about 100

The A19 can be opened and the logic reversed to that it will work with a heater. I've done
