Sent USPS, and it had to be signed for. PITA, adds another day if you work like the rest of the world. Took him about 2 days to respond to my inquiry.

Mine came today in USPS. I'll probably do my wiring this weekend.

Mine was waiting for me in my mailbox when I got home.

Unfortunately, I'll be out of town this weekend, but hopefully sometime next week I'll get it put together.

I see you have the temp probe submersed, I assume it is waterproof? Nice ferm chamber, makes me want to start on mine!

It didn't blow up when I submersed it, so I'm assuming so lol. Right now it's trying to get an equilibrium inside. Gets too hot, then too cold. It's about got it right. This thing is well worth the money, and the 4x4x3.5 fermentation chamber only cost about 50 bucks to build. Very very awesome find by the OP. I've had wood laying around to build one since about xmas, but this is what motivated me to do it.

i don't know if i'd count on that probe staying waterproof. if it works, fine, but it also works fine if you just insulate it against the side of the carboy.

I agree, I wouldn't submerged the probe. Just tape it to the side of the carboy with some sort of Insulation like bubble wrap. I cut up one of those cheap soft portable bag coolers they gave me for free from work. Your temp readings will be very close if not the same.
