You had me right up til the pic of the temp probes in water for primary fermentation, poo poo.

Very nice work on everything else, i'm almost sorry I badgered you in the classified section.

I'm jealous. Really jealous. I want to hate you for having something that awesome that I'll never have.

Nice stuff, man. Be proud.

wow again. the opposite side of the garage is freakin awesome too.

one question for you? how hot does that OSB get behind your brew kettles? seams like adding a less flammable material or a SS backsplash of some kind might be a good idea. better safe than sorry considering how nice your "garage" is.

Where do you suggest Iím always open for suggestions? Just did the water thing because I thought it would be better than open air. I thought about putting temp probes into each fermenter through grommet in lids to monitor activity and control compressor with off one in water. Problem is I donít want to make drastic changes in temp based on one fermentation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Don't sweat the classified section...No offense taken.

It is tough when fermenting that many beers at one time. I just do one at a time and tape the probe to the side of the fermenter.

I find this keeps the temps within 2f no matter how active the fermentation. Any way you do it you will have decent temp swings with that many buckets at one time.
Get a pipeline going and start fermenting one at a time.

I know. The OSB sucks.

OSB is the first thing to go and when I get the money I will go stainless or tile. Actually that is why I am selling left over stuff in the classifieds is to raise some dough to cover the OSB.

Surprisingly it does not get too hot because the burners are down in and surrounded with stainless. You can lay your hand on the table in front of vessels and will not burn your hand. Either way it has to go. Thanks.

Good Idea and once I have a recipe I really like I will invest in a larger fermenter and do one big batch at time. A friend is trying to give me a 4 foot by 6 foot walk in box and I might take it for a future chamber to put a couple decent conicals in. My initial goal was to brew once a week until I get 4 lager beers in the primary. Then brew every two weeks after that. Once I move the last lager to secondary I am going to try a couple of ales one at a time. Want to brew as much as possible to work out my processes and get some beer on back up in case I end up with a bad batch.

I am going to use this method to control both my kegerator and a ferm chamber. Whitelabs vial filled with freezer gel with a prob stuck in it.

Take from John Beere's walk-in cooler.
