Thanks again. I took a gravity reading yesterday (10 days after brew day) and it is at 1.005.
Tasted the sample and it tasted good. I figured it would draw out more fermentables, but wasn't
sure of an...

Thanks all for the replies. I'll report back after I've taken a sample.

I did mash for 60 minutes after reaching 152. I'm wondering what effect, if any, it'll have

An alternative I've seen on here is to use a room/window air conditioner with a temp
controller. Seems like much less work than tearing apart an old fridge or freezer. You'd just

I just bought a bunch of stuff from these two places to convert a vintage Westinghouse fridge
(circa 1950). I searched around for what I wanted and split the order due to some things being
