Variations in temp while lagering

<< < (2/2)

erockrph:
If you put it in a tub of water that should mitigate the temperature swings quite a bit.

I ferment and lager in my garage and pole barn. My garage is attached and and never gets below 48 degrees. I control fermentation temps by raising and lowering windows. I'll stick a keg out in my pole barn and forget about it for a couple months or till the weather gets warm. I am very happy with the quality of my lagers. Last year I fermented a lager with WLP 830 at 60 degrees and noticed no off flavors. I say your good to go.

I'm thinking how cool it would be to put linear drive motors on your garage windows and use a Johnson controller to open and close your windows automatically.  :)
