Johnson A419- What is default cooling setting?

I switched mine over to heating in the winter (obviously), now switching back to cooling.

Do I want cut in? Or cut out? In other words: What is jump 2 pin setting?

These are definitely on my X-Mas list. Dry hopping with whole leaf hops was the first thing I thought off...Such a pain to pain a few OZs of whole leaf in a carboy neck. Also love the screw on top.

Anyone see any issues with wrapping carboy in blanket or sweatshirt and resting on towel in chest freezer to conserve some heat? Temps may dip in the basement and want to keep temp up.

I do. I figure if I pitch yeast at around 64, once it kicks off it should rise to 66-68 area. The controller would kick on if the probe hits 68.

I don't have capability to heat at the moment.

Yup...There are a lot of threads here about it, but I noticed that Cascade is a commonly cited culprit. It's a soapy-like bitterness. My fiancee didn't pick up on it. And I love hoppy beers.
