That's great! I am really liking my move to conical w/glycol. BTW, where in NJ are you? I lived in Madison for about 8 years, but moved back to SoCal about 1.5 years ago.That’s great to hear. I’m pumped to finally get my basement brewery going. Got the glycol chiller ordered and my wife is getting me the SSBrewtech unitank for Christmas.
Yeah, will need need two extension cords to work both controllers. I only have one fermentor...for now, that is! I'm really digging this whole setup and I can see why a recurring theme throughout the conical/glycol comparison threads is the desire to add more conicals! It doesn't help that upon receiving the CF10 and Max2 I moved on from my 2-tap kegerator and converted my GE 7cu chest freezer (that I had been using as a fermentation chamber) into a 4-tap keezer.Using a "sacrificial" extension cord to cut and wire into the switched leg is also a great idea (assuming you had to do an extension cord per vessel controller) and avoids having to cut in the square outlet, but as you said, you end up with cords dangling out somewhere... Still, a much better idea than perma-modding your heaters and stuff...makes it more flexible. BTW, the STC 1000 is directly replaceable with a $15 Inkbird DIN controller, though the secondary vessel controller openings (even peeling back the tack weld metal holders for the circuit boards) don't quite fit that profile and I have not found any drop in replacement like I had hoped. Also, the leg posts are metric, so good luck finding some M8x1.25mm casters.
