Show us your Son of a Fermentation Chillers!!
« on: August 29, 2012, 01:21:56 PM »
Hey homebrewers,

AHA Intern here. We are featuring Ken Schwartz's Son of a Fermentation Chiller design in an upcoming Pimp My System article, and Ken and I thought it would be a lot more interesting to showcase pictures of many different SoaFC as opposed to just one.

So here is my request: post your Son of a Fermentation chamber pictures here and they will likely be featured in the Pimp My System article!!

Thanks in advance for all those who choose to participate. If you don't want to post the picture to the forum, just let me know and you can email them to me!

Cheers!
Duncan

Taking this OT:

Is Ken still brewing?  I learned about batch sparging from him many moons ago.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!

I'm not too sure actually now that you mention it. I guess I just assumed he did. I'll bring it up next time I talk to him and let you know!

NOW BACK ON TOPIC!  ;D

Sounds like he is still brewing off and on, "but not like old days."

My Fermoire started out as a Son of a Fermentation chiller, but ended up more like a cousin.  :)  I can't believe that it's over 5 years old now.  Still chugging along though....  I've got 20 gallons fermenting in it right now actually!

Mine isn't quite as furniture grade as the other one...

I also started with a son of fermentation chiller and used it for a few batches. I quickly redeployed the resources to build the "mother of all fermentation chillers" from the wort-o-matic website.



I wish I still had my original SoFC to photograph for you.
