    [quote=IslandLizard;7761119]Does the faucet head come off its hose? Mine does, and I replace it
    by screwing a 1/2" NPT barb into the connector. The chiller hose gets clamped onto that at
    chilling time...

    I already lift in and out of my fermentor now and i dont have issues with stirring things up
    much at all. The lifting aspect is also a fun excuse to say i dont need the gym for weight
    lifting.Theres n...

    I like the flexibility of my freezer and it's fairly cheap - like me. :DIve always gone the
    cheap route and dont think in all my years of brewing ive spent more than 1k total on all of my
    equipment co...

    Thanks for pointing out the standard wheel size, that was my plan to wheel it around. If the
    temp control works well enough i can just keep it in the garage as well.Now that ive decided
    this im starti...

    Humping 5 gallon buckets full of wort in and out of a chest freezer would get old really quick.
    And pulling them out to rack will send all that settled out break and trub back into your beer
    (although...

    A freezer is a fairly cheap solution. Look for scratch and dent freezers at Lowes, HD, etc...
    I'd go 7 Cu Ft minimum. They're usually about half the price, have a warranty, and are
    essentially new. Ad...

    Moved to a new house last winter and over the last year i've learned my current temp control
    setup just isn't reliable. I had been using a water bath with small aquarium chiller and heater
    to control ...

    Since i posted i actually did the nested tub with expanding foam thing to get some better
    insulation. I have it set at 19.5C and its keeping it within a few tenths of ambient of around
    77 so it's mana...

    That seems like a really really tight fit, but that last pic obviously shows it works just
    fine. I just bought the ice probe chiller for my water bath tub last week so i could finally
    brew during the ...

    This is interesting, did you ever finish this? Does it work as well as you hoped? You said you
    had a water bath prior, but was this new setup also meant as a water bath?I ask because this is
    exactly t...
