I used to have a 1bbl pilot brewery that used maxi chillers with STC1000s to chill the fermenters but there was no need to hack or dissect anything or am I missing the question?

My understanding of it is you need to remove the thermostats if you use it in a fermenting chamber with a heat source, to maintain a temp of say 18 deg, then chill via the stc1000 or inkbird controller

I don't know how your setup would work but can't see why you would need to remove the thermostat and never did on mine.

Thanks Simon,just seeing a video of Harrisons brewery doing it and thinking hes doing it so it does not run continually,switches on and off via the stc,so im as confused as you.
