For that money you can get a digital controller. But then again I can't see any benefit of a
digital over an mechanical except for you can see the current temp, dial in +-0.1 of a degree

Posted in thread: Pitch dry yeast or re-order the liquid yeast? on 08-02-2008 at 07:08 PM
Yeah, nottingham for high attenuation, eg dry stouts, Safale s-04 for medium english ales, s-05

pays to k...
