Does anyone know what size tube needs to be purchased in order to seal tight inside a better bottles neck for blowoff? Or exactly which stopper I would need large enough to fit a more standard smaller tube into?
The room temp is high 70's* to low 80's the swamp water was at 64-5*The brew area is in my basement as is my wood stove I have since rigged up a curtain to separate the room and last night it was 71* ambient on the brew side.
With the swamp coolers I can get the water down to 64* easily with ice additions my son works local and checks on them during his lunch. I have a lager in the lagering faze so I couldn't put this ale in there at 34*. The BB was at a steady 68* the whole time of fermentation. Once you get the 10 gallons or so of water and the beer to the right temp its pretty easy to maintain an even temp. I put a cap full or so of bleach in each bucket as the water will be sitting for 10-14 days it can get a little scuzzy if you don't.
I need to make some type of cabinet or cooling system for the conical so I can use it more often.
