So today I got a 9.0 CF Frigidaire chest freezer from Lowes with my book money. I didn't have to buy any new textbooks this term, so why not invest it? Right now it's just got 2 lagers in it, the other two are ales that are getting carbed until there is room in the hotrod. The plan is to add a collar to it, which should let me get a bucket or carboy up on the hump with the CO2. Right now it's holding steady at 35 with the onboard thermostat set to its lowest setting. I also ordered an aquarium temp controller off ebay to instal in the collar so I can set the differential and control the temp a bit more precisely.
And here's the lineup: Fermentation chamber - Hotrod - Lagering chamber
