He's in Ft Worth; I think 71F is about as low as one will natually see on an active primary in Texas inside the house, unless one is using a dedicated fridge or other guerilla cooling method. We don't have those (how you say?) basement things. :-) So we think that 71F is a luxury, as good as it gets. Brewing time! Move fast before it's 100F outside again!
I've bought the controller (another package from northernbrewer!), but haven't found a free/cheeep fridge yet. Even with a wet tshirt jacket on my primary it's still 64F.
