Anyway, I made a few different peltier projects, both are in progress, but I have brewing with them. I have attached some photos of my peltier cooled conical fermenter. It runs at about 146 watts and runs me about $50-100 a year a according to my "kill a watt." What do you all think? I would be happy to help others.
what an incredible piece of HW...it seems more a nuclear reactor than a conical fermenter ..
Since I have implemented something similar (see my picasa photalbum) I dont understand how it works yourshttps://picasaweb.google.com/1096930...eat=directlink
Where is the fermenter chiller ? inside or outside ?
How do you perform heat exchange ? air-water ?
Could you explain the design and different hot/cold flows ?
