Since I do not have a cooler basement, and at this time of the year (in Mich), the only place I can keep my carboy is inside my home. I would like to avoid any problems with temperature and/or leaks, etc.. Has anyone used a garage that stays typically 45-55 degrees? I am just starting to brew my own, and i see myself doing alot of ales. I know it is too cold for the ale yeast, so has anyone seen or know of a heater that can be used to heat my wort to the proper temp in a cold place such as a garage? This will not be a problem in a couple of months since the overall temp will rise, hopefully soon, but i would love to be able to brew 12 months of the year.
any help would be appreciated!!
