Hey guys, thought I'd start up a thread showing my heater/chiller build for my conical fermenter. My plan is to use an Arduino Uno for all the control. I have an old water chiller I got from a scrap yard years ago that I will be using for the cold side. On the hot side I have an aquarium heater that will sit in the reservoir I made a while back for the chiller.
For the last week of so I have been playing around with the Ardunio board and made a pretty good controller circuit/program.
After that I moved everything to a prototype Arduino shield
Here's a quick shot of the chiller in it's current state,
You can see a small power supply stuffed into the left side of the chiller. This will be used for powering the Arduino and the relays. On the right is the reservoir i made out of copper.
Over the next few weeks I'll be working on this project and posting updates as I go. I can't wait to get this working!
