Poor Man's BrewPi

I've recently started brewing my own ale at home, I've had some success, but this has been, somewhat, limited by the summer heat, which, whilst I love the summer, my ale suffers, and becomes too warm. With peek temperatures of 31° Celsius this year, I really struggled to keep the temperature low enough to limit harm to the fermentation process.

I needed a fridge and a controller: step up BrewPi, my only constraint was that it needed to be cheap. The following outlines some of the issues I had building my first BrewPi.
