  • My company specializes in Commercial/Industrial automatic temperature controls-both new and rebuilt. Our rebuilt specialties are pneumatic stats and controllers as well as electric boiler controls and actuators. (H) In my almost zero spare time I enjoy outdoor activities. I enjoy keg beer mostly refrigerator that keeps my beer ice cold all of the time. Johnson makes the ideal control (A419)for conversion. It is a plug in electronic type with its own added receptacle for plugging the freezer into. You set and forget it and the only thing inside the chest is the small probe which still allows you to close the lid-no wiring, no drilling, etc.

  • I helped a buddy brew his first Pilsner with a home-brew kit. It tasted delicious, a lot of flavor,body and a little sediment. We named it ASTB beer (almost blank the bed)as both of our digestive reactions were pretty extreme the following morning. For now, I enjoy a good beer, mostly light beer as I am not a one or two beer drinker when I do drink it and prefer keg beer over bottles and cans.
  • It is my intent to take brewing up somewhere in my retirement. I am just starting to read up on things.

    Sorry for the bump, but I am working out my temperature controller right now, and it is quite
    similar to your build. You say that the SSR does not require a heat sink for this application.
    Just wonder...
