So since Summer is comming, the temperature of my basement will start to move up and down. (Currently I only need to heat so it's easy to "manage").
I'd like to build myself a fermentation chamber not only because in summer I have variable temperature, but also for a better control of the temperature of my fermentation. The goal is to control at the exact degree my wort is fermenting.
I saw people building their fermentation chamber using ST1000 temperature controller (20$ from ebay?) and this kind of setup looks fine I guess (I don't have much experience...). My setup should be able to heat and cool.
So now the main question I have is : Should I buy a small fridge or a freezer? (Heating will be done with a lightbuld covered by a coffee can or something like that..., I don't have huge heating need).
I'd like to be able to ferment all kind of beer with my fermentation chamber and I don't want to build another 1 in 1 year because there is something I cannot do.
If you also have a nice reference website/page/document on the subject please let me know
