After years of going without temperature control & never making lagers, I have finally made a step in the right direction.
I had purchased a Johnson digital controller, last week (planning ahead).
Then, 2 days ago, I got a free (YES...FREE) 10 cu ft chest freezer, on craigslist.
Last night, I added a 2x6 cedar collar.
(Incidently, my house & garage smell freakin' marvelous, right now.)
It's very plain, but I'm extremely happy & excited.
Maybe some day I'll get around to making it pretty.
This afternoon, I'm brewing an American Lager.
