Therefore unless your double plug has the capability to have separate Live connections, the answer is to use two single plug outlets.

    But how do you know this you may ask - because I have made this mistake! (aka experience....)
    I made exactly the same mistake! They dont make em like they used to?. I think most are like that. If I remember correctly the Crabtree ones still are separate.

    Yeah I'll definitely do two different plugs then. They're cheap enough to get, so I'll just get two. A reptile heating pad is not a bad option to have. Thanks gents, I think I'm going to buy that one!

    Thanks! Temperature control has always been my main problem. I can't wait to try it at a nice, controlled temperature! I'm already planning a death-by-chocolate stout...

    And on that note, they're damn snappy. Payment went through at 07:48. I just got the email that the parcel is "En Route", at 08:06. I'm impressed!

    Picking up the fridge next weekend...

    Check out uncle bils double chocolate stout, also temp controlled fermentation is where it's at. I wired my heatpad directly in and the single plug to the fridge. I used an outside plug housing for the box and can slide the top over to close it. Sits on top of the fridge

    Ooh yay, guy with the fridge pulled out. So now I have an STC-1000 but no fridge. Fantastic.

    Well, you're halfway there. Now you have the time to find the right one at the right price. With so many people leaving SA you're spoilt for choice too. It could have been a blessing in disguise

    Yeah I doubt I'll find one for that money again. It's in great nick, and would have cost me R300. Bummer, but eh.

    You will probably be good to go through the winter, with a lamp in a cool cupboard or cabinet. . Then have time to keep an eye out for a good gumtree deal
