Johnson A419 Pre-Wired Digital Thermostat – $68 Shipped

Johnson Controls Digital Thermostat Control Unit - A419ABG-3C

Johnson A419 Pre-Wired Digital Temperature Controller.  This is an overriding thermostat.  You can plug in into a heating or a cooling device (change jumpers to switch between heating or cooling) to more precisely control temperature.

Common homebrewing applications include controlling a deep freezer or refrigerator for use as a kegerator or fermentation chamber.  Generally, you would turn the device all the way up (most cooling power), place the A419’s probe inside, plug the appliance into the A419 and plug the A419 into the wall.  Includes ASD (anti-short cycle delay) to help increase compressor life.  Has a configurable set point and a configurable differential.  It can also display in both deg C and deg F.

I have used two of these.  One for my kegerator and one for my fermentation deep freeze.  I started out with an analog model on my kegerator and like control (and temperature readings) of the A419 so much that I replaced the analog with an A419.  These are great temp controllers!

5/5/16 9 AM Central: This great controller has dropped to $68.  That’s a great deal.  Shipping is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order. Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.  See Recent Amazon Finds and our Amazon Fillers Resource Page to help you put together an order that qualifies for free shipping.

Growler Filling Tips and Tricks
Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers
