Okay - kind of a noob question here, but I wanted to see how you guys do this.
I purchased a 7 CF chest freezer that I use as a fermentation chamber. I have a dual stage temperature controller as well, so I keep a constant temp for my beer. I can fit two fermentation vessels just fine.
I have a 6 gallon carboy as well as a 6 gallon bucket. The idea is to ferment two beers at the same time. Here's my question.
Since fermentation can be as much as 10* more than ambient temperature, how do you guys ferment two beers at the same time? I'll be monitoring one beer with the controller, but the other beer will be subject to ambient temps in the freezer. How do you guys schedule out the fermentation? Seems to me keeping the freezer cool enough for one vessel will potentially create temperature conflicts with the other one.
That make sense?
