Finally putting the finishing touches to the new brewhouse and an AIPA well under way. Ambient is still around average 20 in the garage so I didn't worry too much about temp control on the fridges. According to the Fridgemate ( independant operation, not actually connected to the fridge), it was sitting on 22 then, with the beer surface clearing and after dry hopping I went to turn it down to around 9 for a bit of a cold condition, then eventually to around zero.
After pressing the usual buttons the Fridgemate was not responding correctly. I was getting error messages and nothing was working apart from the temp reading. Houston we have a problem. Well after many years the good old Fridgemate had obviously done its duty and was clearly in need of being replaced by an Inkbird or something similar.
I wondered about maybe a factory reset option so I downloaded the Fridgemate manual, now probably 12 years old. Press the set button....
Hang on, that's the green button... ok... so why is it in a wrong position? When using a Fridgemate it's advisable to have the bloody thing the right way up.
So after flipping it over it worked perfectly. The fly in the ointment being that 22 looks the same on the Fridgemate whether it's right way up or upside down.

spog: A small commemorative batch with custom labels in aluminium bottles ( call them platinum bottles) I think Bandicoot Brewery in Echuca use them.

DCB: Another realization of good home brewing beer being the best you can get because its to your own personal design. I am now learning how to appreciate Mead. It just takes longer and far more expensive to make on the ingredient level but. Simple is best pure

Lord Raja Goomba I: Anyone know where to get some beer labels (maybe bottles, more likely for a blackboard and maybe tap decals and general Batz style sticker bombing)
