There are tons of pics, tons of plans, and tons of people who have built Son of Fermentation or Mother of Fermentation Chillers on here, but I haven't been able to find much feedback from people about their experiences with them.
I've been planning to build a modified 'Mother of...' and post pics. I'm about through with getting the electronics figured out (fan, thermostat, indicator LED) but wanted to see what other people think of theirs before I go too far down the road.
If you built one, what's it like? Have you enjoyed it? Has it made a difference in the quality of your brews?
Or did you end up tossing it out after a few brews and go to a fridge with a temp controller?
