Maybe you could. I will try once these are done. They are sitting at 67-69 degrees. The weather is nice in my garage so I am using very little ice as compared to the summer.

I was able to fit a 6-gal glass carboy and a 6-gal BB at the same time. It was tight across, but it worked like a champ.

Any room for a blow off and ice in there too?

Yup. I think I had 4 2-litre pop bottles and a 1.5 litre blowoff container.

Just got mine in yesterday. Just in time to make yesterday a brew day. I was using a small chest freezer with a Jhonson controler. Now i can free up my freezer for kegs.

I notice some people talked about them sagging. Mine stands right up with no problems.

Awsome product Btw

Mine came yesterday, after a trip to the LHBS last night, i'll be brewing up a hoppy wheat tonight for a 6-gallon better bottle, and an american cream ale on Sunday to put in a 6.5 gallon bucket. will see if I can fit them both in there at proper temp during initial fermentation.

Had a 5 gallon batch in a 6 gallon carboy in there with two half gallons and two 1-liter bottles of ice for about two hours now, but it's not seeming to drop the temp much, if at all, from ambient... Both sitting right about 70...might move it back to my sofc before bed, don't want to start off with esters before I even get going...

It takes me several 2 liters (3 or 4) to get the temp to drop. Two 1 liters may not be enough.

Plus it takes over night to up to 24 hours for the temp to drop much for me.

Yeah, I put it in my fan-powered SoFC overnight, got it down to 63-64, then moved it to the bag with one gallon and two half gallons about 12 hours ago, and it's been at 64 all day, most of that with fermentation going like mad, so i think i'll be ok, just needed to get that down. I either need to use a boatload of ice (my freezer doesn't have room to freeze 4 2-liters at a time), or start it in my SoFC and then switch to the bag once it's initial cooldown is done.

You could also put the fan from your SOFC in the bag for a few hours. That would have similar affect as being in the SOFC.
