Yeah I know the temp of the beer without the probe will not be dialed in 100%, but it would be better than leaving it a swinging room-temp out of the cooler. I am about to place my order of either one or two of these. I'm very excited to stop putting carboys in the bath rub. I'm also not interested in building a fermentation chamber, and this one is portable! Awesome.

Thanks! That is a great idea!

In our testing we did not have any issues with the 40 Watt Fermwrap directly touching the cooler.

I am excited to hear how it works for you with multiple fermenters!

I should add however we have not tested with a brewbelt or heating pad yet so I would not recommend using a brew belt or heating pad yet. I will be sure share once we complete testing with other heating elements.


Cheers,

I put a drugstore heating pad on between a carboy and a brew hauler inside a fermentation chamber for two weeks while fermenting a Saison and it worked without issue.

Love this thing so far.

This weekend I brewed up a Schwarzbeir which I am attempting to pull off a lager with in my Cool Brewing bag. On day two and my wort is still around 50F and the ambient is about 52F. Fermentation is only just starting to take hold now so I am thinking I may need to swap out the ice more frequently to keep its temperature stable.

The lagering is done and went well, though I think if I had used more ice bottles it would have kept the temperature closer to where I wanted it. The ambient outside temperatures is 65F and I was able to keep the ambient in the bag to 52-54F by switching 4x 500ml bottles out every 12 hours. I think if I made it 6 bottles I could have had it at 50F like I wanted. All-in-all it wasn't hard to do, though during summertime I would probably need 8+ bottles of frozen water to keep it that low.

My major gripe about this bag is, like many others have stated, that the lid caves down on top of the airbung knocking it over. Not a huge deal and easily remedied with a bit of effort. I am going to build a mesh frame next time to put into the bag to keep it more stable.

I switched from the s-type bubbler to a 3 piece air lock. The 3 piece type are much sturdier. No need for anything to hold up the bag anymore. The airlock easily handles the load.

For those of us more interested in smaller batch brewing, maybe you can consider adding a smaller version. I don't need/want anything that's big enough to fit two 5-gallon carboys.

Hi,

We are working on a size just right for 1 and 3 gallon brewers! I will be sure to let you know once we have them ready.

Cheers,
