Heating/cooling coils

This is the heating and cooling coil. Using this with the Brewhemoth allows me total temperature control, regardless if the shop is too cold or too hot to maintain the ideal fermenting temperature.
A couple short videos.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnH8idVcY04&list=UUbJ4Ace9RBNFId-0dZuxTkg   and  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOimcCZgdMw&list=UUbJ4Ace9RBNFId-0dZuxTkg  
The shop has been between 41 degrees and 74 since brew day and the beer has been held where I want it.

Wiring a dual temperature control for the heating/cooling coil

As the diagram shows, wiring up the dual temperature control is quite easy. Remember to remove the "tangs" that connect the screws on each side of the outlet. This allows each plug to receive an independent circuit.
