Inkbird ITC-310T, Dual Stage w/6 Programmable Timers [Kegerator or Fermentation Temp Control]

412hKGisp6L

Itc-301T by Inkbird.  Digital Dual Stage Pre-Wired Temperature Controller with 6 Timers.

Dual stage means that the Itc-310T can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

This controller is similar to the Inkbird Itc-308 – [Review] with some notable differences including the fact that the 310T has a timer feature that allows you to program 6 temperatures in 6 periods of time.  That plays well with changing fermentation and conditioning temperatures during fermentation.

Reader Tip: Hisense 7.2 Cu Ft Deep Freeze – $109 at Costco

Thanks to HBF Readers Jim and Dustin for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

I’m told that Costco has the Hisense 7.2 cu ft chest freezer, model FC72D6BWE marked down to just $109 through 2/20/17.  Use in conjunction with a temp controller [See: Hands on Inkbird ITC-308 Dual Stage Temp Controller] for a kegerator conversion project or as a for fermentation temperature control.

from Dustin… “Comes with a 3 year warranty. Great price, had to pick one up. And unlike my other 7.X cubic foot freezer, it actually fits 4 ball lock kegs in the deep section (tight fit though). This was on display right at the entrance at my local Costco, but seems to be a nationwide deal.”

Check with your local Costco club for price and availability.
