Great step forward in your fermentations.

Damn I want one. That looks great and perfect for temp controlled brewing. Maybe that's what I need instead of a mini fridge. Where did you get it?

It'd be great to put a shelf in the middle to get two buckets in there. Then put some polarized mirror film on the glass to keep UV down.

Already working on the shelves and I'm thinking about insulation board over the glass to keep out UV rays and keep the cold air in. It's out in my Florida room so I can only imagine the cold air that is escaping through the glass. Any suggestions?

What about reflectix?

Easy to install. It will keep the light out, add a little insulation and look nice and shiny!

Thats looks to be exactly the same unit that I use, with great success. You'll love it. I can fit 2, 7 gallon ferm buckets on the bottom and two more on the shelf with room for two corny kegs on each level also. 2 batches fermenting and keg conditioning two more batches at the same time. My pipeline is never that full though. But I can dream!
