Carb Cond Chamber & Brew Cellar

Recommended Posts

Close to 100 outside but a steady 64 in the Brew cellar.

 

Other pic is Carb Cond Chamber.

 

12 count liquor/wine empty boxes from liquor store are used, to transport and store 740 ml beer bottles.

Old table place mats are folded to prop up front of LBK.

Found two old dog/puppy crates in basement that have black plastic liners. Using them to sit LBK on in case of spill/leak.

Using seedling mat in cooler to heat. Unscrewed and removed coolers spigot to feed wires in.

Yes, I am fortunate to have a place with low stable temps, and during a heat wave.

Large deep basement. aprox 1,700 sq ft, poured concrete, 8 ft walls.

Also, have a place to hang out during a power outage.

LBK is placed on high shelves because floor is 55-58.

I thought of possibly doing lager in winter, not sure.

Might be colder in winter, only recently started monitoring basement temps.

If you're near 50 during the summer, why wait? I only see waiting as delaying an opportunity.

I jealous that you have a basement, let alone that it stays that cool with as hot as it is. Nice!

BTW. I agree with Bill and Shrike.

Update:

I guess a few weeks of a heat wave is taking its toll.

LBK on shelf is now 66, and floor is 64.

Still within limits for Ale, but not Lager..

Not sure when, but was after the winter/early sring that floor was 55-58.
