    Keezer cycling question

    I know this seems to get brought up all the time, but I'm worried my homemade keezer is cycling too often. I think it's a 5 or 7 cu ft freezer, without any external modifications (I just ran two wires in under the lid and gasket). I'm using a temperature probe that's hanging and measuring the...

    Temperature During Primary Fermentation

    Hello all, I recently got about 6 gallons of cider and pitched Red Star Premier Cuvée. Primary fermentation has begun—I had to raise the temperature considerable to about 61 degrees F, though. Looked through the New Cider Maker’s Handbook by Mr. Jolicouer, and didn’t see anything specific as...

    3 Tap Full-Size Kegerator

    This kegerator conversion was made with a CO2 line pass-through on the side that allows the 10-lb CO2 tank to be stored outside while providing space for up to four (4) 5-gallon kegs inside. The inner shelf maximizes "floor space" while still providing space above for taps and connections and...

    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...
