Here are some pictures of my temp controled brewery,
1 is the fermenter (84 litres in thar)
2 is the controll switch, just set it and forget it,
3 is where the probe and temp gauge wire go deep inside the brew via a fish tank heater tube with the gizzards removed.

Hi Big D,
the switch in the control panel will switch power to either the fridge plug (grey cord ) or the light bulb mounted under the fermenter for heat ( red cord) depending at what setting the switch is at. Unfortunatly I took this photo just a few hours after fermentation had finished and had turned the switch down to 0 for a weeks cold conditioning, that is why the temp gauge is reading 14deg and the switch is set at 0. The push button switch to the right of the panel is a left over from another idea that didn't work as is the light socket mounted at the top of the fermenter.

Hi Guys

here is a link to my mates brewery set up in Canberra.

Note:
the Convoluted Counter Flow Wort Chiller - from St Pats
The fermenter Taps - allows you to use a glass carboy as a conical fermenter.
He sells the Fermenter Taps for anyone interested.
I got him the taps for the freezer.
I also helped with advice on the brewing Bench.

Happy Drooling......... :p
