Hey aubiecat, glad the starters guide helped you! Your E-BIAB build is jaw dropping and definitely where I want to be one day. I think I'm up for the challenge but the wiring may be tricky for me. Will definitely post this if you don't mind but it will take some work to get it written up for the site. Lot's of info there!

Also, I may post your fermentation build as well because mine is overkill for most people and your's is nice and clean and well written up.

I love both of your builds lewybrewing. I'll post them soon, maybe later this week or the weekend.

I don't mind you using the fermentation build. Glad you liked it.

Ferm-chamber build. Things been operational for about 2 months and holds the temp solid at 66.5 deg. I've actually only heard the heater and/or refer come on once in that 2 months.

Hey man, cool site! I can see it growing nicely! I like the idea of a "What not to do; DIY". In any new DIY project I'm doing, what not to do is usually the part I look for first. It seems to really help in avoiding simple mistakes. Again, cool site, keep it up!

Wow! Just quickly skimmed some of your site on my iPhone. The mobile version is very nice & clean. The info seems very complete as well though I only had time to look at one area.

Well done and thank you!

Yeah, I'm really torn on the what not to do section. I really think it can offer some good info for people but we need to decide on the best way to add it that is not confusing. thx for visiting.

I was excited about how well it looks on mobile as well! The site actually does most of that automatically.

p.s. Any more project links would be helpful.

Using the STC-1000
I did experience some issues w/ the high temps we recently experienced in North Cal over the past weekend. 90 degrees outside and the chamber was not able to hold the inside temp at 66 like I had anticipated. What I think was the problem was I had an exterior piece of plywood that was covering the back of the fridge. I have since taken that piece of plywood off and all seems well so far. But we're back to about 62 degrees here and expect high to mid 80's over the weekend so we'll see what happens. A good way to help ease the strain on the compressor in the fridge is to wire a fan on the same circuit as the fridge so that it turns on directly facing the compressor when the fridge turns on. That way your cooling off the and allowing airflow to the compressor so it does not overheat.
