Over a week in and I'm so glad that I switched to using this product. Temps have been extremely consistent in the low to mid 60s when the outside ambient temp was 78-79F. Great product, and not having to have to monitor a swamp cooler is very nice.

Very interested in buying a few of these but would like a decent workaround for the sagging. Don't want it hitting/blocking the top of the airlock....

Had anyone tried a 1 or 2 liter bottle with both ends cut off, over the air lock sitting on top of the carboy? I'm not sure how heavy the material is but it could be an option

Thanks for the feedback everyone! This is a good idea for those who don’t want the top resting on the airlock.

We did our testing with the cooler top resting on the airlock with multiple brews both in a carboy and fermentation bucket with no issues. The lid is not heavy or tight enough to block the airlock from working correctly.

Cheers!

I've done 1 batch with a blow tube and have 1 now with the airlock and have the cover zipped and it's not tight at all. If you wanted to, you can just sit a cup next to the airlock that is higher than the airlock and would give it a tad bid of headroom. I don't find it needed.

Any word on these tests? I would like to know as well. I have big temp swings from winter to summer where I live so I need a product that can keep the beer cold in the summer and warm in the winter.

Thanks for the question! I should have an answer on this within a few weeks. I will keep you posted!
Cheers

Please see these testing results in a 80-85 degree room. There was no problem keeping temps 20-25 degrees colder than the ambient temp.

This was a 5 gallon batch in a 6.5 gallon plastic fermenter. This batch had 2x 2 liters and 2x to 4x 20oz changed every 24 hours. The wort was a little too chilled to begin with so ice was not added until 48 hours on Saturday

2.) We will work on testing with Fermwrap and heating pads and report back!
So I am planning on ordering but does anyone have any negative feedback? There is no similar item on the market and the wife will kill me if I have another swamp cooler in the house. I too, live in TX and need a solution for the heat. Seems most are happy so I am sure I will be satisfied. What is the life expectancy of this product?
