Default Son of a Ferment Chiller is complete....chillin at 62

Finally got some time this weekend to finish up the chiller. Of course the next day I had to brew a batch to try it out. I made a 10 gallon batch. One is fermenting in the chiller at 62 F and the other is in the basement at about 69 F. I'm using German Ale Yeast in a Northern Altbier recipe I created. I used yeast that I had washed from the first batch of this I attempted. Enjoy

Washed Yeast

The Chiller Open

I like using the freezer pops.....they actually work really well

This is the wireless thermo transmiter...chillin at a cool 62.1

All Sealed Up

Hope you enjoy the pics....and yes it is a ping pong table with the Grateful Dead 1972 European Tour Album cover painted on it.

Son of a chiller...take it off the list!!!!!

It's not a beer gut....I'm building a shed over my tool.

Congrats! I just built the 38DD mother of fermentation chiller, seen here

Basically the same thing it just holds two carboys. I love it, very efficient and works great. Once you get the temp. stabilized it hardly runs at all. Temp. control is a beautiful thing.
