Can this comfortably fit a 30L fermenter? I assume no STC-1000 is required for this kind of fridge.

Nah they dont fit normal round fermenters because of the little hump at the back would need jerry style

its not like an actual fridge either. These things just cool down from ambient i am pretty sure but have a selectable temp range around of 12-18

Thanks mate, I'll keep it in mind if you've still got it on the market in a week or two. I think a proper fridge might be best, though I think the temp range of your little unit would probably suit me very well too.

These are proper fridges, you can tell from the compressor hump.

The other sort are piezo electric, which can only reduce the temperature so far from ambient.

I have one of these from aldi, and it does 7-18 degrees. I use an STC1000 for higher temperatures, and if I want lower temperatures, I'd have to bypass the fridges temperature controller.
