so I wanted a way to control conditioning temp for my bottles without being expensive, and I haven't got my temp controller in yet, so I got this brilliant idea.

its been working fine so far, just change the water out every so often.
Basically by just putting hot water in the water jug every so often and monitoring the temperature the cooler keeps the heat from the water contained for a good amount of time. it obviously isnt as consistent as something with a controller but the key word is, CHEAP

feel free to check out my blog too

I am such an amateur!

I've been trying to figure out how to turn a room in my shed into a conditioning room, but this might work until I get that finished.
To paraphrase Dr. England - "Off-flavors smooth with time. So do mountains. Brew it right from the start!"
