It's hot and humid and standing next to the burner wasn't going to be fun, so the CDA is on hold and today became research day. The results are in; we're building a temperature controlled fermentation chamber. Parts are now on order to make the controller. Follow that up with a trip to Lowes to modify the existing minifridge to hold the fermenter buckets and soon we'll be ready for steady temps and fermenting in the 60s or maybe even some lagering coming up. If all goes well, we may even be able to have a controlled/heated chamber too but not sure when that would get much use here.
Thanks to android on HBT for the writeup/suggestions:
It may look something like this when done:
