I am looking at temp control fermentation chambers and was hoping for some advice.
My primary concern is really space. So I would like to find something that will hold 2-3 fermenters with out having too much wasted space. I think a chest freezer would be the most ideal?
I have seen the build at home threads and i am jealous! I am not nearly handy enough nor do I have the tools to make my own.
a 7 cu. ft. chest freezer will hold two 6.5 glass carboys (or 1 glass carboy and one plastic bucket) Brand new, these are about $210.00, you will need a temp controller as well at about 85.00.
Start searching craigslist, you can find cheap, or free, freezers.
I'd look on CL for a 7-10 cf chest freezer.
And you can buy a dual stage temp controller from Ebay for about $25 and mount it right inside the body of the freezer if you like.
Ok, thanks! I was leaning towards a 7 cf chest freezer and I think that is the way I'll go!
