I’d prefer to use a beverage cooler as fermentation chamber and have the compressor controlled directly. However, I’m no hardware guy, this is my first build and I’d like to avoid too much frustration/headache.
What are your experiences with beverage coolers? Are they (usually) harder to hack than fridges? Is there something specific I should be looking/asking for when choosing a beverage cooler? Maybe some visual characteristics which indicate lots of electronic, …?
Thanks for your ideas!
