OK, I'm the new and proud owner of a Johnson A419 controller. I also bought a thermowell to use with the probe. My questions are about the settings. I'm thinking the temperature should be fairly stable with the probe and thermowell inside the fermentor - I can't imagine any wild swings negatively impacting the ferment or the fridge's compressor as 5 gallons of beer shouldn't change temps all that rapidly.
So, first - does that sound reasonable? Second and third, etc -what settings do others use for set point, differential and anti-short cycle delay?
Thanks and hope every one enjoyed the NHC. Look forward to having you here in Grand Rapids next year.
