Can I use a fan speed control, which is essentially an extension cord with a dial in it (which regulates the power that reaches the fan, and thus controls its speed) to help me control the temperature of my brewing freezer (which is meant to reach a warm-fridge/cool-room temperature (40-75 F))? I have seen dial controls around, but they tend to have a thermometer probe attached, which can regulate temperature based on what it senses inside.
Ultimately my question is this: can I use an in-freezer thermometer to measure the temperature and dial it in with a fan controller dial until it is correct? Or, could I use a timer to turn it on full-tilt for a few minutes or an hour (or whatever is necessary to maintain the required temperature) at a time to control the temp?
Of course, I've heard that some freezers are very versatile with no modifications (I'm getting this thing tonight, used, so I don't know a WHOLE lot about it, just trying to be prepared with other gear I may need).
Thanks for all thoughts!2 AnswersEngineering9 years ago
Can I use pH 7.0 water instead? I have a lot more of that on hand since it comes out of the wall for free.1 AnswerBotany1 decade ago
Is there anywhere one can go to discuss spirituality etc. on the internet where the people know not to ask the foolish questions they ask here.
I'm tired of everyone coming up with ideas that are hardly unique, and asking them in effort to discredit or stir up people of other creeds on Yahoo! Answers.

Has anyone read the recently discovered Gospel of Judas? It's quite old, and dates to the early Christian era. It is a Sethian gnostic text, so it is quite out of keeping with modern Christian beliefs. Anyone have opinions, wish to discuss, etc?17 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
My copy of CS Source crashes a lot during level loading or during gameplay. My computer has a Radeon x800pro and a 3.6 GHz processor and 1GB RAM, so this is not a hardware issue. Anyone else have this trouble, any particular settings you changed to fix it?2 AnswersAdd-ons1 decade ago
Anyone have any idea where I can get a FULL english translation of the Bansenshukai? I have the entire thing in the feudal-era Japanese, but this is a long hard job to translate. While I would like to do so, an english source would help me iron out and more correctly translate it.2 AnswersMartial Arts1 decade ago
I am making Garam Masala, a traditional spice in many well known indian dishes, and an integral part of many Japanese curry recipes (as well as many *other* curry recipes as well). Many recipes call for finely ground bay leaves as part of the recipe. Oddly enough, through all my years of cooking I have never received a truly united opinion about bay leaves.
Are the hazardous to eat when finely ground?
As far as I know, it is only eating them when they are whole or in large pieces that is dangerous, but I wanted to ask the experienced cooks out there.
Any ideas?5 AnswersCooking & Recipes1 decade ago
