I found this on ebay, its only about $30 to your front door.

Think of any reason why this wouldn't work? I want to use it on my chest freezer fermentation chamber. I think I can figure out the wiring, the only thing I still need to check is the max loads.

It does work. Here is a thread on how to wire things up. You will be able to find anything you need to know about it here.
Good luck.

That looks ridiculously close to my Love controller that is doing the job on my ferm chambers


I'd love to see if it performed the same...but I don't have a need for another one at this time.

I'd say go for it and see.

Sometimes it is just easier to go to Google and put "site:homebrewtalk.com" at the end of your search terms, even though this site uses Google custom search the actual Google search sometimes works better. (not always)

Mixtea is good seller. I bought my first controller from him, and after I made it work I went back to the EXACT same listing, and ordered 3 more. Unfortunately the next 3 were the 220v versions. A simple picture and an email and he apologized and sent m 3 correct ones.

Temperature Controller STC-1000: Do not order from mixtea on ebay. I ordered and paid for mine four months ago, many messages back and forth and now nothing, no product and no refund and no more messages. I got ripped off, be warned.
