Default one batch and a bought this

Hello everyone i am a newbi brewer but i dont do anything halk cocked. I must say this is one high quality piece of equipment and really look forward to no buckets or carboys. Just finished my first brew and started my third batch and plan on full grain soon. My closed cooler worked really well also. 16 minutes and two bags of ice. Cheers !!

Ditto. That's a nice piece of kit, but I'm afraid it's not going to help you make good beer unless you have a way to keep it temperature controlled. Your money would have been better spent on other things.

Nice! I wish I had more available cash. But I agree, I think this should have been a bit lower on your list.

Nice! I bet the temps in Washington are probably close to perfect this time of year!

They have a heating/cooling blanket with controller system for those conicals. That would be another good investment imo. Looks nice.

No its not under light all day.
Why would i want it to be in a fridge when my ferm temps are 65f-70f
I also got a kegerator and 3 cornie kegs for fridge
what beers require low temps for fermentation ? porters do i know but what else.
Mostly doing kits right now but purchased 3 kegs and stuff from adventures in brewing.
To answer another question i used approx 2 bags of ice to cool my wort and cold well water, 6 gallons of wort cooled off in 16 minutes to yeast temp. Worked well but will get a plate chiller next. The pump is a flotec sub pump from home depot.

Well,lagers need to ferment around 50F. And the effective range of cooper's ale yeast,for example,is 62-72F. Many ale yeast fit this example,& the lower end of the range being cleaner & less estery.
So ales can be cleaner tasting at the lower end of the range,regardless of how light or dark it is.
