Greetings from Wisconsin, where the temp is now dropping into the 20's at night. Alittle too cold in my garage for brewing, even lagers now and it will get down to near -10 during the winter months.
So in order to keep my sanity i have decided to construct a Fermentation chamber so that i my brew lagers and ales all year long with out worry.
I found this Freezer Conversion
while doing some research on google. I have a 13cu ft freezer i would like convert to a fermentation chamber.
1. Here is what i would like to do - be able to have 2-3 batches fermenting at the same time, Some in primary, some in secondary.
2. Start putting my beers in kegs
3. Have Ales as well as Lagers fermenting at the same time.
I would use 2 inch foam board to section off the freezer and set the freezer to the coldest temp that any contents would need, then use a heat source to heat any of the compartments up to the temp they need.
Does this sound right?
Or should i start looking for a couple of smaller freezers?
Thanks for the Help
