Nope. Nice fermenter, but I don't have a T-Shirt that big so I couldn't control the temps. Was
reading this thread this morning, and happened to stumble across this about 2hrs ago at Thomas

weeks before really active fermentation seemed to slow down enough that I could go to
secondary. In secondar...
Posted in thread: Would you bottle if your hydro looked like this? on 10-05-2008 at 06:29 PM
