Great DIY Tutorial. I bought my supplies this morning and ordered my TSS2-2100 as well. Now I just need wait for it to come in

Now off to rearrange the garage to put in the freezer chest.

Still working on my keezer and wanted to pass on a piece of advice to future builders. Be careful when you go to purchase parts to make sure you know exactly what you want and are ready to install them...check the return policy and don't wait too long to return if you don't need them. Lesson learned!

I received my controller today and finished my fermentation chamber controller tonight. I was able to test it and it worked perfectly.

Thanks. I got the freezer I plan on using for a fermentation chamber today. It's 17.5 cu ft. I can fit four 6.5 gallon ale pails in it or I can fit six 5 gallon glass carboys. It should be awesome.

I just wanted to share my Ebay Stc 1000 temp controller build based on your design.



Here's my wiring diagram for the STC 1000 in case anyone does what I did and stumbled into this thread like I did looking for a way to wire their's up. As others may have noticed, the back is a little different than Tom's love.



Great thread though, I like having the always on and the dual plugs for heating and cooling.

Nice job Revvy... I've actually used the always on a hell of a lot more than I ever thought I would. It is really handy.

I assume you plug the freezer into the"cold" outlet, the heating element (light bulb, blanket,aquarium heater) into the "warm" outlet and the controller does the rest. Do you disconnect the freezer thermostat somehow, or doesn't it matter?

You just turn it up all the way Skrimpy and the controller handles the rest.

Nice. This is going to be way easier than I thought it was. So much easier in fact, that I might bury all the wires and plugs underneath and run the controller up the door next to the handle.
