Date: Wed, 24 Sep 2008 20:40:53 -0500 From: "LANCE HARBISON" <harbison65 at verizon.net> Subject: Temperature Control Cross-roads I am in the midst of building a 2 ft X 2 ft X 5-1/2 ft tall fermentation chamber for my 20 gallon conical. I am going to mount a 6000 BTU AC unit for cooling. This unit only has a 60F lowest setpoint. I was also planning to submerge the controlling thermocouple into the wort, but am now having doubts that the AC will be able to effectively keep 20 gallons cool, especially in light of the exothermic reaction of fermentation. A couple options are going through my mind: 1) mount the TC on the OD of the fermenter on the side opposite the AC; 2) mount a small lightbulb in front of the AC to keep it's internal temperature warmer than 60F; 3) install a small fan to circulate the cooled air; and 4) submerse a 1/2" coil into the fermenter and circulate ice water through it with the pump and AC being controlled simultaneously.
