Subject: Inexpensive Temp Control

The Hunter Air Stat is a good choice for inexpensive temp control. It retails
for about $30, I bought mine on sale last year for $19.99. It plugs into a
wall outlet, the refridgerator is plugged into a receptacle in the Air Stat.
This receptacle's line current is controlled via a thermo couple on a 36"
wire. This receptacle is rated for the current load of a home AC unit so a
refridgerator is not an overload on it. It maintains the temp programmed into
the digital display +1 / -2, given the thermal mass of 5 gallons of liquid the
beer temp shouldn't vary much. The only negative feature I can think of is the
units minimum temperature setting is 40F which is still cold enough for
