Sounds like you want a freezer for ales also. I have for many years used the swamp cooler

Personally, I'd raise the mash temp to 154. My biggest complaint with the Off the shelf session
IPA's right now is a thin mouth feel. Yes, I realize that you won't get a HUGE mouth feel from

where I am fr...
