I have a quick question, is there any easy way to keep my bottle aging cabinet at around 65-70 degrees? I thought I saw something on here where someone setup a small tub with water and put a water heater in it. I need some kind of cheap solution like that. Because right now my cabinet that I keep my bottled beers stays around 50 degrees during the winter and I'd like it to be alittle warmer to help speed up carbonation.

A tub of water with an aquarium heater.. Or just a small electric heater in a cabinet or closet.

I'd try a small heater in that cabinet. Try Target or Walmart.
