    Massachusetts 10 gallon ball lock corny keg

    Looking to sell one of my 10 gallon ball-lock corny kegs. Turns out that I don't need 3 and I need more room. No rust, holds pressure, etc... Little bit quirky as the dip tube is a little short (works perfectly for fermenting / leaving behind trub), and the ball lock fittings are compression...

    Frost-Free Freezer: Use compressor for cooling, defrost heater for heat?

    I have two ~14 cubic foot Frigidaire upright frost-free freezers that I want to turn into fermentation chambers. Cooling is obviously in their wheelhouse, but I was reading and it turns out that part of being frost-free is the incorporation of a couple hundred watt heater by the cooling coils to...

    Higher precision temperature controller?

    I recently made the switch to using a thermowell with my wine-fridge fermentation chamber and have noticed large swings in temperature due to the slower response of the probe in the thermowell compared to being strapped to the outside of the fermenter. Currently I use an ITC-308 which lets you...
