Is there a temperature controller that has a dual probe? The idea would be to have one prob on the lager controlling the freezer and have another probe connected to the Ale's carboy which would control a Ferm Belt or Heat Pad connected to the ale. I could even put a piece of insulating foam between the fermenters to make sure heat from the Ale doesn't carry over to the lager.
Is there a better way to do this? Would I need 2 separate temperature controllers?
I just use 2 seperate STC-1000 temp controls to do exactly this.
Something is always fermenting....
