Default Laundry room fermenting

Hey just wanted to share a quick fix to getting a lower fermenting temp. I know I'm not the first to do so, but it works well. I have two cardboard boxes with carefully placed holes redirecting the laundry room air vent. I decided to place the carboy in the container in case of a blow off or mess. Later I'm planning on using a dryer vent hose instead of the boxes.

Looks like a good idea to help lower temps ....one question, do you really drink Bud Light?

Busted! That's from SWMBO... This batch is actually for her. Bavarian Hefe. Hoping she will approve of my new hobby after this batch!

Great job of taking advantage of what you have.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.

Tried this in my house but couldn't get the carboy to stay on the ceiling where the vents are
