Posted in thread: Chest Freezer to fit Speidel 60L Fermenter on 08-27-2015 at 04:13 PM
I have 2 of the 60l fermentors, and I use a modified side by side fridge/freezer to ferment in.
Works great. I can also lager in it!

Thanks for the replies. I will send the sample from my filtered water. I know my recipes are
solid, most I have got from here. Late addition and whirlpool hops have helped with the aromas.
