Fred –

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.

Thanks again,
