For my last IPA I used 1oz of warrior for my bittering hops at 60 and 3oz of Zythos at 10. I didnt dry hop as the Zythos is such a strong hop. If all you're looking for is more aroma/flavor, then add more at the -30 mark and dry hop. What was the recipe you used?

I'm sure there is a way to control both temps/devices with one controller. These are great ideas and giving me a good picture of what is needed. Maybe using BYO mag's temp controller along with the temp probes and plugging the cooling and heating elements into the controller and probes would allow me to set a temp and let the controller do it's job.

Absolutely can do it. Just buy one of these.

Hmmmmm that coupled with a mini fridge would be perfecto! I noticed it didnt say if it automagically switched between heating and cooling like a home temp. Controler. Im assuming it does for the price, but i could be wrong?

No prob. I hate learning a new forum's navigation. I'd still love a smartphone app tho.

I didn't see the search at the top of the page, but there is no need to be a douche about it.....

@bluesman: That's what i'm trying to get, but for around $200... I have a minifridge so the dollar mark is less the fridge. I want to be able to use it like a household temp controller. Set it for 70* and "forget". or lower for lager fermentation.

how about a simply forum app for the android/ios operating systems? Nothing special, just simple read, view, search, post ability. with the abundance of smartphones we should take advantage of these phones to allow the forum/homebrew community to flourish. That would be huge!

Thanks for the links. I'm loving the fermwrap. I work in the pool industry so heater parts are easily and cheaply available to me. The only thing I don't like is the 40 watt draw. I want to do this as much DIY as possible, and the temp controller (I think) is a 10 watt power box.

a search function!!!! as well as the ability to subscribe to your own thread(see PC World's threads). On the PC World forums I can subscribe to my, or anyone's thread, and I have the ability to determine how often I recieve emails on replies to the thread. Those 2 are the biggest additions I see that are needed.

I brew mainly IPA's, but I want to get into Lagers and low temp fermentations. I'm thinking about taking an old minifridge and a heating element... maybe frankenstein it together?

I'm relatively new to homebrew(brewed my third batch saturday) and read an article on temp control for the fermentation by building your own temp controller. The idea looks sound and I could do it, but my question is, has anyone tried doing this with something like a fridge to be able to heat if necessary? I could put the temp controller on my minifridge to control the cold air, but not sure how to add heat if necessary. i'll be doing a build thread once I figure the heat part out. Thanks for the help/ideas. I couldn't find a search function on the forums.....
