I found this on Amazon does anyone have any experience with it? 35 bucks with free shipping seems nice.

here is a thread about it. I was thinking about it as well. I was also looking at the chicompany.com analog one, but they're out of stock.

15 amp capacity, not bad. I'd like to see if its temp probe could be extended.

temp range isnt the best for a keezer. Although definitely still usable. It only goes down to 45 degrees. I looked at this but wanted to be able to get down to 40 for my keezer

I was thinking of building a keezer .. mostly for fermenting lagers 45 should be sufficient but your right. I may just wing the extra 10 bucks for a ranco

I use it for my fermentation chamber and it works great. Too warm for a keezer though.
