I'm sure you saw the box in the middle of the garage when you left for work this morning. That's the fermentation chamber I'm building.
This will give me room to place my beer while it's fermenting and I won't have to carry it into the house and hurt my back anymore. It will also allow me to make lagers, which require lower temperatures during fermentation. It will be heated in the winter, so it will keep the same temps then, too!
I will use your old college mini-fridge that has been in our basement un-plugged for 12 years.
All the wood I'm using for framing was found in the basement. I'll use some of that scrap plywood down there, too!
For the floor of the box, I'm using the piece of insulation board that was cut out of the sunroom wall (that your mom bought us) when I installed the heater/AC unit.
Some of that dark-finished plywood from our old kitchen will be used for the front of the box. That will look nice! :-)
I found some old casters in my workshop I can use so I'll be able to roll it out of the way. I'll place it under your parents' old kitchen table which I have setup in the garage in front of your car. That will replace the spot we had the dead upright freezer I just threw out.
All of these brewing related projects are keeping me busy at night and helping me lose weight! I'm so happy! :-)
It's amazing that I am able to build this super fermentation chamber utilizing all of these items we already have cluttering up our house! But, I need to buy one more tiny thing. I need Pactiv 2" x 4' x 8' Square Edge Insulation for just $26.98 from Lowes. May I buy it? http://www.lowes.com/pd_304090-210-304090.0_0__?productId=3122447
