    I can live with that. Right now I have a small space heater near it that turns itself on and
    of. Brought it up to 62 and will see if I can hold that with any consistency. Didn't want to
    fluctuate it t...

    Ok, so can anyone comment on what I should expect if I just ferment it at 58 the whole
    time?Lack of flavor, off-flavor? Won't know unless I try? lol

    I've also thought of putting a heating pad under it and calling it a day.Just checked it and
    it's at a solid 58 now. I expect it to stay there, but don't know what to expect as the
    outcome. Think I'll...

    My gut feeling is that 25 watt would be too little to hold your temps. However, it can't hurt
    to try.That's kind of what I was thinking, but I wanted to decide if I should run to Northern
    Brewer on my...

    It would be awesome to just leave it, but I feel like 58 is low when it calls for 65. I was
    just going to try to hit 65-66 and hold it there if I could. Wasn't really aiming for the 75!

    Currently fermenting with Wyeast 1332 and need a temp range of 65-75F but I'm only at like
    58-60. It's fermenting, but I want to be in the right temp range.Am considering doing a swamp
    cooler with a ...

    I have a second immersion chiller for my five gallon pot. I'm going to setup a secondary
    chilling phase to cool the water more before I return it to the ice bucket. maybe that will
    reduce the amount o...

    My last batch I took my bucket, half filled with water and let it freeze over night. I can
    chill in less than 30 minutes.Now that doesn't sound like a bad idea. Doing it that way how
    many buckets do y...

    So I'll likely need to refresh the bucket at least once before I reach pitching temps is what
    you're thinking?There is plenty of snow - and it's still coming down, but I just figured it's
    going to mel...

    So I'm going to try this today and wanted feedback on the idea.I have a submersible pump that I
    am going to put in a five gallon bucket of ice, top off with water, and then pump it through my
    immersio...
