I need to do some water testing for temps, but I may be able to get 40, if I keep it close to the north wall of the basement, or in the "cellar"...hhmmmmmmmmm....I'm pretty sure the cellar (the closet that the old well pump used to be in) stays at just above freezing during the winter (35-40). I'll put some gallons of water around for a few days to test the temps and see if I can hit the right lager temps w/o the fridge.
Thanks for the yeast tips, I will avoid Munton's. I think I saw a dry Kolsch yeast at midwest, I'll have to look.
