vlbaby your setup is very impressive, the timer is abit of wank factor not really required. The bits you don't see on mine are the powerpoints and power supply. I think I might have to start on the next version that is a bit neater on the back.

Goat, the thing under the strap is the temp sensor for the brew, it is insulated from the ambient air to give a more acurate reading. I tried a probe in the brew but it proved to be too much of a hassle.

anyway here is the pcb, circuit and code.

Any one built one of these Temp Controllers from the above genorous post by Gizzbrew. I note it uses a Pic 16F628 but IC2 and IC3 are not identified. Can anyone identify them.
