How do you not get tangled up in it when you use it? The tranny cooler is just bonus points.
I'm still grinning at that picture
P.S. How'd the brew go?
Brew went great. Perfect boil (I love me some fermcap-s), smooth as can be. CHilled it to 68F, racked it into the primary, toped it up with just bit of water, whipped/aerated the crap out of it with a big kitchen wisk (sanitzed of course) and poured a half-gallon starter in it (California Lager yeast...not fermentation chamber yet).
I then placed her in a water bath about 6in deep, wrapped a wet towel around the bucket, and put a fan blowing across it. This morning, she had a nice krausen, so I reset the fan, and added a frozen 20oz water bottle to bring the temp down a bit. I am hoping to keep my fementation temps in the low 60s-high 50s. We will see.
