I ended up having to buy a fancy new digital outlet timer, but after some playing around with it I figured out that running the electric element for 5 min every 4 hours kept the water bath within a range of a couple degrees. Long-term, I'll probably build another temperature controller, but for an occasional need this setup seems to work pretty well.
