    Option of supplying your own fermentation chamber Sizes from 2 x 25 L fermenters to 9 x 25 L fermenters Collar for extra height, painted and insulated with closed cell foam. I was extremely limited on space and I couldn't fit a chest freezer or refrigerator down my stairs and into my small brew room. We will see how I go. But I don't want to try to haul fermenters in and out of a chest freezer though. I also agree that could be super difficult and potentially dangerous getting glass carboys and fermenters in and out of a chest freezer.

    No. In this set-up you would be measuring the freezer walls and not the ambient air or the fermenter itself. The freezer walls will frost over.Hodge Garage Brewing: "Brew with a glad heart!

    A chest freezer and a dual-stage controller can give homebrewers the to build some kind of temperature-controlled fermentation chamber.I have googled this question, but most folks use there freezer to serve beers as well and I already have a keggerator so I wouldn't use it for that purpose Cheers and have a great Big Brew day!

    I am interested to hear from anyone who uses a chest freezer as a fermentation chamber. I did find a thread at HBT where a few members.The only issue I see is that a wine refrigerator is that it will only go to 40 degrees or so.

    A chest freezer and a dual-stage controller can give homebrewers the environmental control needed to brew lagers in August and saisons in.Or you can pull out your checkbook and get a big boy Conical Bundle.

    Chest Freezers are a homebrewers best friend when it comes to temperature control for use as a kegerator/keezer or a fermentation chamber.Or if you have a full door upright you will need to build a shelf above the bottom kegs to have space for more kegs.

    I plan on doing a little shopping around this weekend for a chest freezer that I can use as a fermentation chamber.I currently have 2 heat pads in my inventory, just wondering if you guys reckon that would be enough power to heat the chamber if I had 2 brews in there.

    Any size chest freezer you require can be converted in to the perfect fermentation chamber with a temperature controller and added collar to allow greater.It works just fine.

    But I don't want to try to haul fermenters in and out of a chest freezer though. Part of my reluctance to go with a refrigerator is its.With the warm weather that we have enjoyed lately, I realized that I was going to need something better than an Immersion Pro I want to continue to ferment in my garage during the warm months.
