    I doubt going to a closed loop system and adding another heat exchanger in the keezer would

    you'll be more...

    Supposedly, homebrewers should only store yeast for up to 2 weeks at refrigerator temperatures,
    otherwise they should just buy new yeast (due to viability loss and so on). For easily
    available (and ch...
