I hope maybe it was just that one bottle cause just like liquor i woke up this morning with a massive migraine like i would if i drank liquor the day before
Your splitting headache is a sign of fusel alcohols from too high a fermentation temperature. They'll mellow with some conditioning time.

Search swamp cooler to get your temps into the mid to low 60s and you won't deal with them anymore

So has anyone ever use an airation system for aquariums to provide a very controlled and consistant temp. Airation in water creates more evaporation. Plus an air pump with a riostat would be great cause if you need it warmer turn down the pump if you need it cooler turn the pump up. I think that would be way easier then ice packs and all that cause my fiah aquarium stays about 65 i think without the heater and thats with one 1" round air stone airating 20 gals of water!

If it controls the tenon in your aquarium there's no reason it wouldn't in a water bath that I can think of. I know some people in cold areas use aquarium heaters in a water bath successfully

Yeah i would think it would work and be easier to control temp with a pump that has a riostat for controlling the air output

Of course you can keep the temps in the 60s.

Fill a couple of two liters bottle with water and freeze them.

Get a rubbermaid tub for $10 from walmart. Place your fermenter in it. Fill it most of the way with water.

Stick a bottle or two of ice in the water. Swap them out to keep the temps down. Voila.
