Another advantage of cornies, the sun don't shine in there!

I use a small electric space heater & blow warm air on the fermenter. I keep the house around 65F in the winter & have an electric heatpump, so I'm not really wasting the power. I have a 24 hours timer that has 48 pins to control when it is on. About 30 minutes on and 60 off works best.

I keep a couple of clear bottles on hand for every batch so i can see the beer. I look for floc. of yeast and color. Clear is much easier to see through than amber.
