Yea... the downside of going with the CoolBot with window AC for this particular application is
definitely the price especially if you have some other options available to you. I was
concerned that th...

I made a similar box using 3.5 inches of the pink insulation board in the walls and 5.5 inches

controller to individually control multiple fermenters and not just controlling the air temp
around the fermen...

Hi gang....Is there a ballpark guess as to at what batch size, controlling the ambient air
