Count me in the "me too" camp. This product almost works TOO well. I had to use less ice because my carboy was too cold, fermentation slowed to a crawl. Took one of the frozen 2 liters out and everything was great from then on.

Thanks!

bk0...can ya let us know what temps ya got down to using the two 2 liter bottles (also what the room's approximate ambient temps were)? Also what it went up to with one bottle and what you were fermenting in (5 gal or 6 gal carboy)? Thanks for sharing!!! - Info Geek

Sure. I was using a 5 gallon PET carboy for a batch of mead. Ambient room temp was around 70-75 F. Temperatures initially got down to 50-52 F which made fermentation slow down too much.

I was actually using four 1 liter bottles, so I removed two. After that temps went up into the high 50s/low 60s which worked better.

Thanks! Helps others to gauge what they might need to get to where they want to go re: temps.

I'm using this thing, for the second time, to make a LAGER. The heat from the fermentation helps regulate the ambient air in the cooler, and i add a warm water bottle - the process is easier than an ale!

Using mine for the first time, with a 7 gallon plastic fermenter bucket and two 2L bottles. I started off putting two frozen 2L in, and the temp dropped about 15F overnight. The next day both bottles were about half melted, so I swapped out one for a fresh frozen and left the other as-is to melt completely. Since then, I swap out the fully melted one with a fresh frozen every 12 hours and I'm getting a temp drop of ~10F in a 78F ambient room.

I'm liking this, any discount for repeat purchases?

I've got 2 that I've used for back to back brews going on 3 times. Early in the summer, I could only ferment 1 batch every 3 weeks, Now I can do 2. The extra beer is needed for football season. I'm going to have to start charging my friends.
