Default igloo icube 60 qt cooler

I found one of these bad boys on target for 14 bucks. Will this work for a make shift fermentation chamber? I use the buckets.

Default LTLS: Low Tech Lager System

I am using one of the in putting together a Low Tech Lagering System (presented in the Basic Brewing Video on Lagering). It is the 60 Quart Igloo Ice Cube. Mine will work with a temperature control unit that will circulate cold water for cooling. You coul also use water, and some frozen water bottles to control temps. But short answer is Yes you can use this to control fermentation temps.

I use one as a swamp cooler in my basement and add an aquarium heater when neccessary. I made a foam top for it bit it's not really neccessary. I'm actaully going to use it as a BIAB hybrid mash tun on brewdays too.
