    Looks nice and easy to control the temperature.

    Currently curing meat in my biltong dryer and also placing it in the fridge on the lowest setting with a small fan placed on the bottom to circulate air.

    So this can take it to the next diy level.

    Tekkie,

    What ever temperature setting you use on your refrigerator, you need to make 100% sure it does not approach freezing temperature for meat - which is -2⁰C.

    Once you get there, the ageing process will cease and cannot restart again if the temperature is raised.

    But where did you buy the components from?

    Does the controller or the temperature sensor show on your phone?

    Would be awesome to see the temp on my phone so looking for more information on how you did that?

    I do see some beer making websites sell temperature controllers but not sure how good they are or if yours is better...

    You buy it from a bunch of places. RS components, Communica, Mantech, DIY Electronics, Micro Robotics etc etc.

    Yes, all the parameters are shown on my phone and I can adjust the temperature and humidity setpoints from there too.

    To do that, use and HC-05 Bluetooth module connected to the serial port of the Arduino.
