Cold thermostat and temperature recorder.
Good day everyone!
I luckly obtained for free a freezer with a broken thermostat. I am planning to brew some lager beer, so I would like to replace the thermostat with a digital one, in order to set the temperature on 4°C / 39,2°F / 277,15K (ahah) (lager beer brewing temperature!) and to record it during the fermenting process, transfering then the data on my computer.
Before I get lost through the universe of electronics, could anyone of you give me a good advice on where to look? I suppose an Arduino could do the trick, but I know almost nothing about it; so i ask you.
Otherwise, I scavenged a "working", non-digital fridge thermostat, but I've just seen that it makes the freezer to get no warmer than -10°C: does anyone know if it is fixable and how to?
Many thanks for the attention, and have a good day!
