Cold Crashing Questions

Well played Greeny.

Sounds like you got 4 out 5 there.

If you had a bar fridge with a freezer, for the hops, I guess you couldn’t fit the kegs upright like that. Are you going to fit a temp controller as well?

The hunt for me is on.

BTW,  my cold crash fridge got down to 3 degrees. Hadn’t been used for 2 years, guess it needed some re-acclimatisation time. Probably helped to stop opening it too 😏.

Yeah. Well the priority was to fit kegs first and foremost. No thought to a freezer. Its gonna be put to the test this weekend. Have a lager cold crashing which i will keep in the fridge for 3 or 4 weeks. I think im set forever now.

Get real.  You have been on the forum much longer than me and I can see that this is still early days for you.  This is just your first dedicated fridge.  Could use SWMBO's response to work on a freezer for your hops and other frozen ingredients.

Great work on the sell job, though.

Respect!

Nah 3rd dedicated fridge mate. Fermentation fridge. Kegorator and now keg conditioner. I dont think im in need of any more fridges. Going from a robobrew to a 2V or 3V system is probably the next one. My fermentation fridge can fit two fermenters at once.

I got it wrong. You are well ahead. I have just got the one freezer.  Too scared to come home with a second one.  I am planting seeds though.

Cheers Shamus

Ive crashed my last couple of brews without hooking the fridge up to the itc308. I'm getting it down to 1.2c, it fluctuates a little from .9 to 1.5c .  Might just be a misconception but when using the itc308 set to 2c it never gets down under 3c? seems to bother the fridge?

is the fluctuation bad?  i think not but not enough learnings to be sure yet.

thoughts?
