Homebrew Temp Controller Roundup! – Kegerator and Fermentation – concepts, applications and models

homebrew temp controllers

Temperature controllers, sometimes referred to as over-riding thermostats, can control devices like refrigerators, freezers and fermentation heating devices to provide a consistent temperature for your kegerator, fermentation chamber or brew system.  They do this by monitoring the temperature and cycling on and off the device in question.  Generally, you will set the device to full cooling or heating power and the temperature controller takes over from there.

Wired and Unwired

Unwired means.. you have to hook up the electrical wiring.  It does not come with a plug-in cord.  The ITC-1000 is an example of an unwired controller.  That controller requires some additional materials, time and know-how to get working.  Wired means… no AC wiring is necessary, the controller comes with cords that you can plug your cooling and/or heating devices into.
