If you end up needing to ferment mostly ales (~mid 60's) and are having trouble with either the cost or size of a refrigerator or mini cooler that will fit your carboy or bucket, I highly recommend the below Igloo cooler for fermentation. I was able to keep my wheat ale right at 65 for 2 weeks with very minimal tweaking (adding ice cubes periodically). Good luck!
Mr Malty drops the viability to 26% while yeastcalc drops it to 47% for the same date. They used to use the same formula but looks like yeastcalc changed. If you are concerned, average it out and make a little bigger starter.
Thanks for the reply. I know the box might get tricky, will have to pull out the plyers. I wish i would be able to just pull off the top except there is another screw that there that doesnt screw in or out. It just adjusts another spring i think. Hopefully il be able to figure out a way without digging myself deeper into this mess.
