I use a dehumidifier to cool my glycol and have no problems getting it down to -4 c with a
submersible pond pump in the cooler. I would imagine any ac unit would put out a lot more btu's

When I put a utility sink in my basement there was no way I was going to pay $200 + for a

I built something similar to this and made it the length of my brew stand. I connected it to
