Overall, the fermentation chamber has been working out very well. I've used it for both ales
and lagers, and it holds temp very well. My one issue so far is that occasionally when the

I love these crates- so far I've made 3. I moved the top side rail up 1/2 inch so they can
stack more easily. Also, I created the wood finish just by slightly charring the wood with a

Also, here's a pic of it's maiden voyage: fermenting a 2.5gal blonde ale featuring citra and
mosaic at 68F.

I'm not sure what the best way to attach code would be, so I'm just copying and pasting. The
pushbuttons don't control menus or anything, they simply increment or decrement the set
temperature and the...

wanted to make m...

I plan to build a fermentation chamber from a dorm fridge and a temp controller from an
arduino, but have a few questions before I start:Do I need to build any sort of vent to allow
CO2 to escape?How ...
Posted in thread: Blue Balls Belgian Wit (Blue Moon Clone) on 05-02-2013 at 05:17 PM
So I brewed this up yesterday, just increased the malt to account for my terrible efficiency
with wheat, and used 4942 (Belgian wheat) instead of the 3944 (Belgian wit). I read that a few
people on th...

Ive never used a bottling bucket for secondary/tertiary, but I see no reason not to. Just be
really careful and make sure the inside of the spigot is clean and sanitized. As far as
headspace, I've ter...
