Default Inkbird controller and fridge test

All ready and set up my new brew fridge and inkbird controller,a few tests of temperature,no need for fans in my view,all thermometers tested equal.Looking forward to using it Monday.

Had a thermometer in the test water in fermenter,the pid from the inkbird in the fridge on the side of the fermenter and a thermometer on top of the fridge,every single reading was the same.

Neat job. Love the inkbird. They are great. As i am fermenting lower than ambient temps in mine i dont have a heater and its working really well.

lookin good, but imho you will benefit from adding a small cheap fan, one recycled from a loft bound tower pc case powered by a £shop phone charger is sufficient..

its the air inside the fridge that is the medium of heat exchange between the sources and your brew, help it move and your helping the exchange efficiency.
