Alright...I've been drooling over all those fermentation chambers you folks are building. I've finally decided to bite the bullet and waste another pile of money on some homebrew gadget that i'll no doubt; over design and over spend. I've got a pretty good jump on the project tonight. I'd like to finish it this weekend. Eventually, i'd like a cooling port.

The boards on the following pictures are B grade 3/4" sanded plywood.

Sizing the chamber spot.


Putting the sides up, a bead of liquid nails then some screws.




Tiped it forward, added a bottom, and then dry fit the first part of 1 1/2" water resistant extruded insulation.

Looking good, I used expanding foam insulation when I built mine...wish I had used the foam board.

what are you going to use for a heat source? I'm in the planning stage of a very similar project. Don't have much problem cooling (not counting any lagering), but i need to warm up to temp in the winter.
