The Inkbird dual stage temperature controller is an easy to use and economical controller that is perfect for home brewing. Control both heating and cooling, and set independent differentials for each to protect your heating and cooling devices.
To control ferment temperatures you can place the probe inside the space that is being cooled or heated (often a refrigerator) or you can place the probe directly into the ferment using our Stopper Themowell. You can change from cooling to heating mode directly from the digital control panel. When in cooling mode, and hooked up to a refrigerator or other cooling device, the controller turns the compressor on when the ambient temperature rises above your set point. When in heating mode the controller turns on the heater when the temperature drops below your set point.
The Inkbird controller performs many of the same functions as the Ranco or Johnson but at a more affordable price, making it a great alternative for temperature control.
