    Fermentation Chiller Systems and Findings

    Until recently, if you wanted to homebrew lagers, you either needed a giant cave under your house, or you had an additional fridge/freezer of some sort, with a controller to switch the power on/off based on the beer temperature. For those that were used to “Throw it in a bucket in your basement...

    Beer: A Game of Temperature

    Beer! That delicious and refreshing beverage. When you drink a beer at home or in a bar, it is usually served cold. But does beer really taste better cold? Does temperature matter? Well, yes…yes it does. From grains to glass, temperature matters. If you brew extract, or if you brew all-grain...

    Craft The Perfect Draft - Control Your Temperature

    When I look back and think about all the hours I've spent reading about beer brewing over the years I can't believe there's still something out there that I haven't tried incorporating into my brewing process yet. One year my push was into brewing all grain, one year was all about yeast...

    Understanding Yeast Fermentation Temperature Ranges

    Hey everyone! I’m really new to home brewing: I’ve brewed twice with others and I just set my first solo batch in the basement to ferment 3 days ago. Two more days til I add the dry hops! I want to start by acknowledging the mistakes I made when I was left responsible for the other batches and...

    Fermzilla and a thermowell

    Long shot here, but has anyone made a DIY thermowell for the Fermzilla that's able to be used under pressure? As temps are getting lower here in Maine, I'm not able to rely on my steady 68F in the brewing chamber (AKA the bathroom). I know Kegland sells one, but as far as I can tell they don't...

    converting frigridaire fridge/freezer combo to kegerator

    I'm sure someone has done something similar. This particular model of fridge doesn't have a true dedicated freezer section, it just has an insulated shelf between the two that separates them, the shelf easily unscrews and pops out which leaves enough space for both keg and large CO2 tank. There...

    Colorado Brewjacket Immersion Pro with Extras

    Hey Everyone! I have a VERY lightly used Immersion Pro that I am selling. It is 100% operational and I have only used it on two batches. I am moving my brewing operation to a location with too little clearance, so it just doesn't fit on any of my fermentors in the cabinet. This unit is...

    Lagering and my wort temps have been too cold - is my yeast dead?

    Finally have a fridge just for fermenting, so I'm trying my first lager. I have no data regarding my setup, e.g., when my set the temp controller to X, how cold does it really get inside, etc. I have an older temp controller, with a dial for the target temps and the fat probe. After boil, I...

    Fermentation Temperature Fluctuations

    Hi, Does temperature fluctuation effect fermentation and beer quality? I started brewing this month. After doing some research I setup a 2nd hand fridge with an InkBird temp control as managing a tank with ice was to much of a hassel. Another reason is that where I live its summer and...

    Will This Fermentation Control Setup Work?

    Hello all. So to step up the quality of my brewing the next phase is a fermentation temperature control setup. The lady and I were walking through BJ's yesterday and since I am now prowling for a ferm chamber I walked down the appliances aisle and found this wine refrigerator...

    OK. I'm done letting my beer sit in the garage while praying to the temperature gods for mercy.

    I'm ready to make a solid purchase that I know will pay for itself in no time. I'm looking at all of my options over these different sites and need some help on making the right decision for my set up. I'm brewing 5 or 6-gallon batches on a regular basis and have two fermenters always filled...

    High Temp Fermentation - Saison

    The highest approved temp I’ve seen advertised for a Saison yeast is 80°, but I’ve seen several posts on one forum or another by brewers who say the let theirs get between 80°-95°. What’s the deal with the discrepancy? Has anyone had a positive experience with letting theirs get above 80°? If...

    Cheap/DIY Fermentation Temp. Control

    hey all, I’ve been wanting to brew beers for years, and finally bit the bullet and bought a kit, and I’m way stoked. I just brewed a saison, and, while a fun experience, I’m thinking I’m having temp control problems, since the beer taste especially yeasty and kind of strange. I’d love to be...
