Hey guys and yooper, I need a cheap temp controller to tie me over until I build a larger fermentation chamber and go the Love route. I was looking at that $35 translucent looking one from CHI Company, but if someone on here has one laying around for a similar price I'd rather give them the money.

Thanks!

I have an extra one of these. Not sure if it's what you'd want.

looks to me like a love controller isn't going to cost you that much more... why not buy it now and start using it...

As long as the temp probe wire is at least a foot long, that'll work.

Love control+temp probe+materials=a lot more than a ~$30-$40 used controller. Work hasn't been what it was a few months ago, so I don't have the extra cash to do the love controller at the moment, or even the time to build the cheap version. My old temp controller is on the kegerator now, so I just need something quick and simple.

I have a one of the ebay aquarium controllers that I don't need. It's basically new. It is in Celsius. Id like to get $25.00 shipped.
