I considered getting on or those controllers but it looks like they are only single stage, so you can't have a heating and cooling circuit. I guess the confusing instructions are another reason to...

Fermentation PID Temp Controller - Cooling AND Heating

My new fermentation chamber is going to use a PID for heating and cooling. I like the PID function much better than my old STC-1000, which worked, but had temp swings.

The alarm function will work...

That's exactly how I did it, the box is sealed up with the element threads sticking out and oring slid over. The first few runs I left a plug out so I could look for leaks, never saw one. If I need...

I mounted my element on the front plate, so it backwards from what everyone else is doing. No need to drill a hole in the box, only on the plate. I just use a plug on the back hole.
