    I don't really have time or inclination to correct you math, I pointed out it was wrong I would
    think you could have worked out your error with a little effort. Are you still at school? Area
    of a 12" ...

    just briefly five errors there. 1) The main error. It's not 30% more thermal mass, its 13%
    more, check your math.2) Your surrounding water is open to the air so will lose/gain a lot more
    heat than the...

    It will add to the thermal mass that is true. But unless you sit the carboy in a container much
    bigger than the carboy it won't be a lot. Easy to work out, the increase in thermal mass is the
    volume o...

    I agree that it shouldn't be a problem, but to minimize the ambient temp changes, you could set
    the carboy in a tub of water. That'll act as an insulator, keeping the beer temp a little more
    steady. D...

    the book I'm reading says after fermentation is over, cool the cider and rack it off. It was
    written in 1917 though. I'm still thinking leave it warm for a couple of weeks before racking.
    Surely this ...

    Right I'm sure I can describe this without pictures, might just takle a thousand words. First
    thing is I don't ferment in a bucket. I ferment in a plastic beer brew barrel, pretty solid,
    holds 5 gallo...

    about 11C. The barrels have aquarium heaters in them which keep the liquid at a constant 20C
    (as I said) so does it matter?

    I have two 5 gallons barrels about to finish primary fermentation. They are bubbling about 5 a
    minute. They both have aquarium heaters in them keeping them at a constant 20C (68F). My
    question is afte...
