    That "kas" you can see, is an old stationary cupboard. It can comfortably
    hold four fermenters. I intend converting it into a fermenting chamber.
    Still looking for an old fridge that I can strip for parts.

    Geesh 25 degrees is high!!!? Is that normal?

    The ice bucket thing does not work. That's why I quit for a long time.

    Ice bucket works fine. Can't ferment cold lagers, but for ales it's perfect. Fermenter in a cooler box, with a few 2l bottles of water, frozen, replaced twice a day. Covered with two big and heavy towels to keep in the cold, I've managed to keep plenty of brews at exactly 20C for weeks at a time. In winter I've even used the same bottles, but with hot water to keep the fermenter "warm", and it worked very well for me.

    Fermentation fridge is significantly nicer though.

    Actually, it's pretty low for kveik :-) I usually pitch on 39C, but at 25 it does ferment clean and still fast enough

    Did my latest one at 30C. Still in its low range but I'm expecting some flavor to come through. Should actually have done 25C but forgot.

    Yea. I can really picture the appies drinking skelm on the job and one of them thinking "I'll just put it there".
    I worked the residences at a small mine town when starting out, our December project was installing Christmas lights at the mine club. Those were the days! Thanks for the memories man!
