I've read through quite a few posts on here where people are discussing replacing the thermostat on their kegerators with either the STC-1000 or the ITC-1000 and I've settled on the ITC-1000 since it has both...

    50a PID Control Panel, 2 elements.

    Hi folks. I was hoping this would be an easy installation but apparently not from my electrician. I have no clue about anything electrical. That’s why I purchased a complete system with prebuilt box from @SpikeBrewing (really ebrewsupply). This control box ...

    Got a free wine Fridge from a neighbor with a bad circuit board (controller). I want to turn it into a fermentor and bypass that board that seams to control power to compressor and cooling fans based on temp, and push button settings as well as a light. I am able to determine the hot/neutral...

    I'm converting a smaller, but full-size fridge to a fermentation chamber and hit my first major obstacle that I haven't found on any formus.
