Hello cheesy folks,
Thank you for having such a wonderful source of information on here. I just started making cheese and want to start doing some aging so need a cave. To complicate things, I will be moving to New Zealand in about 3 months, so would like to plan ahead.
The best/easiest option appears to be the mini-fridge with external thermostat. There are a couple posts recommending the Ranco thermostat (http://www.etcsupply.com/ranco-etc111000000-digital-temperature-controller-p-86.html
) which I could buy prewired for 110v and then switch it to 220v after the move (and either add a step-down transformer, or buy a new fridge).
My question is, do you think this is the best plan for my situation? Also, I have absolutely no "wiring skills", so when they talk about re-wiring the thermostat, is this something that anyone can do, how long does this process take (15min? 3 hrs?) and do I need any special tools to do that?
Thanks so much!
