I've written this up as an article for the next edition of Zymurgy. It is the same edition that BrewPastor will be in for his jacketed Conicals... Anyway, I took another picture of the love controller and thought I'd share. This is the newer Love controller. I have used a 3-conductor wire to run to the love controller. The white wire is used for the common, the black wire is used as the hot in from the source, and the green wire is used as the hot out to the compressor. Pretty simple...

Awesome stuff man, I can only dream of the day I need a conical

I actually just finished my keezer this weekend i'm just waiting on my love controller to come in the mail. I was going to mount in the collar but i'm afraid of the damp and cold conditions leading the unit to an early demise. Have you noticed any issues with this?

Looking forward to reading the article. Great stuff JB. I have spare Love that I need to wire into my freezer which is a slightly larger version of your Frigidaire.

Would that be the November/December issue?

I believe it is going to be in the following issue at the first of the year... that seems to be their yearly "gadget" issue.

I received the Jan/Feb edition of Zymurgy today - my article is on pages 22-25. I think I did the project justice...

Just got my Zymurgy today, recognized the cabinets and who made them even before I saw your name. Congrats.

[QUOTE=John Beere;689529]Got one of the fermentation cabinets finished this evening. I replaced the inner door with textured sheeting like in my walk-in cooler. That stuff is $30 per sheet and the freezer door is too large to cut two solid door panels out of one sheet - so I had to improvise and piece it together at the bottom.


John,
Where did you get the textured sheeting you refer to above?
Thanks,
JD

Both Lowes and Home Depot have it. I got it at Home Depot on the trim aisle...
