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

Brewing friends, I just purchased the Inkbird ITC-308, and I'm using it to control the temperature of a ~7cf chest freezer. I've heard that excessively cycling a compressor on and off can shorten it's life. Does anyone have recommendations for the "Cooling Differential Value" and "Compressor Delay" that will give "good enough" temperature stability for fermentation, but won't wear-out the compressor too quickly?
Robert Garton on Sep 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Rubber band the thermo couple to a plastic bottle filled with water. The bottle changes at a more constant rate than the ambient air.
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.
Can the temperature probe be submerged? I don't have a thermowell on this vessel yet.
Brian Sallee on Feb 20, 2021
BEST ANSWER: No, it can’t be submerged. You can fasten it on the outside of your fermentor using tape and a cloth to insulate it from the open air. This is surprisingly accurate. I’ve found it to be within 1-2 degrees of the wort/must. These are great devices though! Buying my second soon.
What is the input voltage range for this device?
Freeman Wells on Aug 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 120V
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.

Plugged it in, turned it on, programmed it to 55 F and it works great! The cost is very affordable, it is a digital (rather than analog) controller, what more could you want? The instruction sheet could be improved though

Good Product
Using it for temp control in a small greenhouse. I wish it had independent target settings for heat and cooling. But my heater has it's own thermostat, so that's the work around for heat.
The control works well for kicking on the fan and heater.
