Depends upon what fermentation temp you want to achieve and what the yeast prefers. If it is too cold, it will take longer to ferment.

This is not a good idea. The temp changes to much. I tried this at one time and it didn't turn out good at all.

Yeah. A plastic tub of some sort. Many have rope handles. Lowes or home depot for 5 bucks.

This is what I do. I have probably 10 of the 20 oz. pop bottles filled with water and frozen on standby. I start out with 3 frozen bottles in the tub of water. I keep a thermometer in the tub, and after an hour or do, I check it. If it's not as cold as I want, I add another bottle. I can keep a 60-65 degree temp for hours that way before swapping out bottles.
