Description

Now you can precisely control the temperature of your fermentation, both heating and cooling with this 2 stage temperature controller.


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, FE624. You can set up all your temperature control needs to do cooling and heating mode directly from the digital control panel.  Please look for our video tab to watch an easy to follow guide to programing them.  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 and hooked up to our FermWrap (preceeding page) the controller turns on the heater when the temperature drops below your set point. A FermWrap around a fermenter or inside a unplugged refrigerator can be the ideal solution for those cold winter ferments. To control a pump when mashing you would install a thermowell in your mashtun. This can be done in our welding shop or, if you have a coupler in your kettle, you can install our Coupler Thermowell, FE622.

The unit features an adjustable differential down to within one degree in both heating and cooling modes. This means you can precisely control an environment to within one degree of your set point.

The included sensor probe monitors the temperature while the digital readout displays it in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. The sensor probe is 1/4 in diameter and works well with the Stopper or Coupler Thermowells. Temperature Range of -30 to 220F.

We also use this digital controller in conjunction with our stainless steel conical fermenters and Brewing Sculptures. With the fermenters it monitors and regulates our electronic cooling units through a thermowell that is permanently installed in the side. With the Brewing Sculptures it can monitor and regulate Mash and Hot Liquor tank temperatures by turning pumps on and off.

Fails after a couple of years.
This product is a piece of junk. This is the second one I've had that has stopped working. Neither the cooling or heating side works anymore. Came out to check on my beer today and it was totally frozen. This product is way to expensive for it to fail after a couple of years.

decent product but excellent customer service
I had the previous version of this unit (ETC-211000-000) for 2 years. The relay for the cooling outlet just went out. When I called and asked for a replacement or refund I was initially told no. When I pushed the request up the ladder, and explained the circumstances and problem they sent me a new unit in 3 days. This kind of customer service is what will keep me coming back to MoreBeer for purchases, even if not all the products are superb.

Great for large volumes
When fermenting larger volumes this Ranco controls more precise than others I tried.
