Description

The Inkbird dual stage temperature controller is an easy to use and economical controller that is perfect for home brewing. Inkbird controllers allow you to control both heating and cooling, and set independent differentials for each to keep the exact temperature you need.

The Ink bird ITC-308S 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.  Aside from brewing uses, this is a great dual relay output temperature controller for cooking (use in a smoker or bbq), home growing (heat mats for seedlings, climate control), or any other DIY project you come up with!

Features:

  • Simple plug and play design with user friendly LED interface
  • Dual stage ITC-308 - control both heating and cooling
  • Adjustable Heating/Cooling differential
  • 1000W max power
  • Celsius or Fahrenheit
  • High and low temperature and sensor fault alarms
  • Can control temperatures of -58° F through 210° F (-50° C - 99° C)
  • Body Dimensions: 5.5 in x 2.7 in x 1.3 in

How does this work on a Kezzer?
Donald Palmer on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Very simple. You plug the keezer into the Inkbird controller, then plug the Inkbird into the wall outlet. the allows a freezer to cycle on and off in order to maintain warmer temps than a standard freezer can do on it's own. We use this controller on a mini fridge we converted into a fermenting chamber as well as a huge 14 tap keezer we built. keep perfect temps.
Our controller wont hold settings. It keeps going back to defaults. Very frustrating. Any thoughts ?
wilco landzaat on Mar 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You probably aren't holding the "set" button down long enough after setting your preferred temp. Here's the relevant note from the user docs...
" SET key: press SET key for 3 seconds to enter menu for function setting. During the setting process, press SET key for 3 seconds to quit and save setting change." This has worked for me. If you release the button too early, it reverts to the previously stored setting.

Great temperature control for the price
This is my 3rd InkBird Temp Controller. I have one controlling my 5 Cu ft keezer (fermenter) with a FermWrap heater and one for my 7 Cu ft. keezer (kegerator). I'm working on converting a wine cooler to a one tap kegerator/fermenter and will use this for temp control. This controller keeps the keezers within 1 F.

Plug and play, easy to use, not hardly!!
Instructions confusing and poorly written. Had to read thru them numerous times and then trial and error to finally figure it out. Once you do get the hang of it, it works well and does the job.

Amazing controller for the money
I read 1000 reviews for this on Amazon, home brew sites and on here. Great controller! I haven’t used the Johnson to compare, but this controller is plug and play. Accurate temp readings, alarm, adjustable temp points, no jumpers to mess with.

Great TC!
Easy plug and play operation, love having the internal carboy temperature readily visible during fermentation. Hands down the best and easiest TC for the money.

So far so good
This temp. controller works just like it is supposed to. The price isn't bad either. It worked good through all my trials and my first batch is in the fermentation chamber right now.
