Thanks. You have a clear grasp on the issue. I need to start the chilled water well before I hit the set point then allow the controller to manage the temperature once I hit the set point.
FYI – I’ve tried doing a bump test on a fermenter but gave up. I could tell it was going to take a long time to see any sort of results (dead time measured in 10’s of hours if not days).
I should be able to modify what you did in the videos (thanks for those by the way) and create a model of my situation. I’ll share what I end up with here once I get it working.
