OK so I ran in to a small problem when I was planning the fermenting phase of my Honey Brown today. I realized my ferment freezer doesn't heat. The weather right now is low 40's at night and 60's during the day. I need to maintain high 60's for the Honey Brown.
I have a Ranco single stage to control the freezer. I wish I had shelled out for the dual stage controller. Instead I went to Petsmart and bought a 60W ceramic heating bulb (no light). It seems to work great except the only reason the freezer comes on is to cool the bulb now.
My concern is that now I'll be running 60 watts continuously to heat and the compressor occasionally to cool.
Is there a cheap dual stage I can do or do you guys think this setup is ok?
