My [FridgeMate Mk II](http://mashmaster.com.au/p/365439/fridgemate-mkii-digital-temperature-controller-kit.html) digital temperature controller arrived in the post today.
If you are thinking of a similar project, or just looking for home brew supplies, I highly recommend [MashMaster](http://mashmaster.com.au/).
I left a question about the FridgeMate for them via their web site, and they answered it within a few hours (and this was outside of business hours). That’s always an early sign of great customer service. They answered my questions about the product very clearly, and even gave me some tips on using it for a chest fridge.
The parcel arrived within two days, well packaged and in perfect condition. They even threw in a free bottle opener!
Now I just need to find a little free time to set up the fridge. That might not be until Sunday, but I’ll write a post about it when I do.
According to the [Fridge Buyback Scheme](http://www.fridgebuyback.com.au) people:
>Forty percent of free standing Australian houses have a second fridge that is switched on and using energy. These old fridges are big energy users, consuming up to three times the energy of new fridges. Running a second fridge adds an average of $190 a year to the household energy bill and puts 1 tonne of greenhouse gases into the environment each year.
Now that’s some motivation to get this thing going!
I laughed, but I wont tell the girls what you said about the freezer.
@Robert: Just kidding about that. I love talking to the types of old people who are blunt about such issues – it makes you realise how much things have changed!
(For those wondering what this is about – Robert was trying to figure out where to keep his chickens while he went away on holidays. I remarked that I once knew an old guy who reckoned the freezer was the best place!)
