Hi you guys out there
I am planning a 2BBL microbrewery, and I have something in my mind about glycol systems. Instead of buying one expensive glycol system do you think a chest freezer would work? Method is:
1 - buy a chest freezer like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Frigidaire-C...-/371026176471
2 - fill it with glycol
3 - hook up an inlet and outlet tube with a pump, put it through the fermentors jacket
It should be able to keep three 500 liter fermentors under 20 °C (68°F), ad bring down one 500 liter fermentor to around 10-8 °C (50°F). Room temp should stay below 26-28.
How does that sound to you?
