Inkbird Temperature and Humidity Controller ITC-608T Pre-Wired AC Dual Stage Outlet Thermostat with 12 Period Time Stage, 1800w, ETL Listed (with Temperature Sensor)

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • US ETL Certificate Listed. ITC-608T thermostat temperature and humidity controller is ETL listed, and rigorously tested for quality control and safety.
  • Three in one Multifunctional Temperature and Humidity Control Mode with Dual Relay Output. ITC-608T can work as a temperature controller, a humidity controller, a temperature and humidity controller. First, only plug temperature sensor with cooling and heating equipment. Second, only plug humidity sensor with humidifier and dehumidifier equipment. Third, plug both temperature and humidity sensor with cooling/heating and humidifier/dehumidifier equipment.
  • Supporting calibration, compressor delay and saving reset setting values. Centigrade or Fahrenheit degree display, easy to set, PV and SV dual display windows. And with compressor delay for protecting cooling device. ITC-608T can save the original setting values in case accidentally power-off.
  • More power up to 1800W. Temperature control range is -40-212°F(-40-100℃), humidity display range is 5 -99.0%RH. Max Loading: 120V 15A 1800W. Temperature senor is waterproof while humidity sensor is not.
  • Multifunctional usage. Temperature and humidity controller ITC-608T can be used in home brewing (refrigerator), fermenting, Greenhouse, terrarium, reptile, planting (mushroom), meat storage and cooking.

 

This product has multiple variations – choose between multiple sensor options (temperature and/or humidity).  I would guess that most homebrewers would be interested in the temperature sensor only version and that is the version that’s linked below.

I would say that 1,800 Watt is a higher capacity than many of the homebrew controllers out there.

Hands on Review: Spike Conical Fermenters + Limited Time Deal on Spike Conicals via Bargain Cave

spike conical review

This review is by Homebrew Finds Reader Benji S.  Benji has been brewing for 10 years.  His favorite style is Festbier.  He’s an all grain brewer and member of WIZA (Whidbey Island Zymurgy Association).  Check him out on Instagram at neon_hop


Limited Time Deal, Review Continues Below:

Spike Brewing Equipment’s Bargain Cave features limited quantities of discounted gear.  Selection can range wildly from new gear to, canceled custom items to commercial scale items.  Availability of items is generally very limited.

  • As of this posting multiple conical and kettle models are available.
  • If you see something you like, my suggestion is to purchase right away as availability can change quickly.

Check out Spike Brewing’s Bargain Cave – to see what’s available, remember… availability is limited


After well over a year of evaluating, I splurged recently and got a Spike Conical (the CF5). I’ve seen quite a few others going through this debate period, so I wanted to provide a hot take to help others in their own decision making process. So far I’ve assembled and prepped it for my first brews, but haven’t actually used it yet. Most of the points here will be about equipment quality/features rather than practice.

For context; I added on the temp control bundle with heater, leg extensions, casters, extended bracing shelf, and a few other nice to haves. So some of these will cover things that aren’t part of the “core” conical package.

Carboy Bag and Carrier from MoreBeer – $27.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Carboy Bag/Carrier via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Use this specially made carboy bag to protect yourself and your beer! Carboys can be slippery, especially when wet. Our strong canvas bag allows you to more safely carry a carboy. If it is accidentally dropped the canvas will help contain the broken glass and reduce personal injury. Your beer also benefits as it is protected from light. UV Light interacts with compounds in hops to create skunky off flavor (editor note… I may not be a smart man but I do know skunky flavors in beer aren’t good).

These are made in the USA from heavy black canvas with strong nylon webbing that is stitched (very strong) to support the carboy when lifting. In the summer, you can help reduce high fermentation temps by placing frozen ice packs in between the canvas and the carboy.


 

Limited Availability Deal of the Day: As of this posting, this is marked down to $34.99 as a MoreBeer Deal of the DayShipping is also free to addresses in the contiguous US with most $59 Orders. Availability: This is available today only, while supplies last.
