So, I am moving toward fermenting directly in corny kegs and have been thinking of building a Son Of Fermentation Chiller sized down to be more narrow and fit a corny. I am also hunting for friedges to turn into a fermentation chamber, which I know would be more expensive, but probably better in the long run.
Then I stumbled upon this.
I can't tell from the dimensions whether a ball lock corny would fit in here. But it looks like it might and be tight. The bonus is the integrated digital thermostat. I may only be able to get one in here, but that'd be fine with me. I would just have to buy a second one later once I build up my pipeline progress.
There are 18 bottle models and others by other manufacturers if you look around. This one's just an example.
This is the sort of thing I could get my wife to agree to having out in the open in the basement, giving me access to check and tweak the temerature as neccessary.
So, tell me why this won't work.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
