An article in Zymurgy a couple of years back described a "Honeywell
T6031A 1029 Refrigeration temperature Controller" which is available for
less than $40 at any wholesale heating/cooling supply. You get this
gizmo, which comes complete with a temperature probe, and wire it using a
3-prong heavy-duty air conditioner extension cord. Synopsis of wiring
diagram: Those types of cords have three wires - a ribbed one, the center
one, and a smooth one; cut the smooth one to wire it into the controller.
If you've got a round cord with colored wires, cut the black one. (Or
else look up the Zymurgy article for a real wiring diagram.) The article
even described how you can use self-adhesive hook gizmos to keep the
temperature probe line orderly. That's all - and all parts are available
locally.
