I want to put a window unit through my wall into the small, unfinished section of my basement and set it to 55. Then I could probably ferment and store there all the time. My chest freezer was free and is usually empty, but I've been brewing more and need kegs to be ready for a family reunion next week.
This is the first time in forever that I have fermented with minimal to no temp control. I"ve tried it with WLP530 on a Belgian Pale and a Tripel...basement was holding 68'ish then. Now its around 73F in my basement so I figured Saison might work. So far so good.
