BrewAdelaide has STC-1000's for cheap, plus you dont have to wait 3 years for shipping like some yum-cha sellers on ebay.

Google on how to wire it up - piss easy

Thaks for the help boys,looks STC-1000 is the Temp Controller to go with.
Not necessarily the best, but certainly the best value by far

After fermentation I cold condition my fermenter (drop it to 1-2C for 4-7 days) so all the yeast and particles drop to the bottom. (Dont worry you will still have enough yeast for bottle conditioning unless you cold conditioned for a few weeks or more. Then I pull it out of the fridge the night before bottling day and let it warm up to room temperature. Just so the yeasties are awake and ready to rock when they hit the sugar in the bottle.

Some peeps put the temp probe from the stc1000 into a bottle of water in the fridge. I just tape it to the side of the fermenter and cover it with some foam or bubble wrap to insulate it from the fridge air temps.

What are the LEDs for?
Green for cooling, red for heating

Not really needed but i can see it lit up from my kitchen (all my gear is in the garage) - besides they were like $2 each from jaycar

I found this diagram very useful when I first looked into this.
