I’m trying to use the brewpi to condition my beer so have set it into constant fridge mode. As it’s in an outbuilding there is quite a temperature differential between the room and the 17 degrees I’ve set it at. What would be the recommended settings to try and keep the fridge temp a little most constant, as it stands it’s fluctuating between 15 and 18 (see below)?
I know that due to poor insulation it’s going to fluctuate a bit as heat loss is pretty quick, but it’d be nice if I could get it a little closer.
(fyi, the beer probe is lo0se in the fridge, I clearly have some temp gradient so am in the process of setting up a fan (as mentioned in my other thread))
It has improved with time, it now spends no time waiting for peak which seemed to be mostly to blame (as it was cold outside it cooled down very quickly even with the fridge off). It doesn’t ever turn the fridge on, it heats it up to around 17 then cools naturally until it hits around 16 before heating again. 1 degree fluctuation seems ok to me, does it seem about right or is there room for improvement do you think?
