That's WAY too anal, even for me, and I'm a programmer!

So, with an ambient room temp of say 40F, a 40-watt bulb should keep my refrigerator at ale fermentation temp?Yes, leave the temp controller active, the fridge thermostat will probably not go UP to 60!
I understand that direct light on the carboy is to be avoided, but what about indirect, light that is reflected off the insides of the refrigerator, onto the carboy?
I was banned from buying from them!Yeah! What did you do to piss them off?
A 40 watt light is enough to heat my chest freezer in the winter. I could have rewired my temp controller to heat mode but I just let the freezer to cool it down if it gets too hot.I did pretty much the same thing. I'm in NC so a 25 watt bulb usually does the trick. I lucked into a 2 stage ranco for 45 bucks so I'll be adding the bulb to the heat side come October or so. I just cover the bulb with a small steel coffee can to keep the light away from the wort.
