I don't see why not. Some homebrewers "freeze" yeast in a glycerin solution and they can still ferment.

it's sitting in a closet that ranges from 67-69 right now for the next few weeks. we shall see if it carbs up.

if it does, i have a new crash cool meathod for the next few months. no fridge space taken up either.

I bought an old Kenmore refrigerator modified with two tapper handles in the door - I checked the model and serial numbers online and the source I found said it was made in 1985, 27 years ago!

The guts all look very clean and in good condition - I cut down a bucket so I could cold crash in the freezer, and put a thermometer in there last night. The freezer settings are on their warmest setting.

This morning before I left for work it read 15 degrees F - I'm probably going home to a 4 gallon beer cube, even at 7.5% ABV.

Reason: corrected an omission for clarity
