I just got mine from Brewmaster's Warehouse for $55.

Should be finishing my fermentation chiller tonight.

No. Wrong. The Johnson regulators cycle the appliance compressor on/off. Do NOT try using a dimmer.

The johnson controllers work perfectly, and can be had on ebay (unwired) for ~$25 or prewired from online brew supply shops for ~$50.
