My fermentation chamber is a freezer in the garage hooked to a temp controller.
Since the garage is not insulated, the freezer won’t be able to hold temp in the low 60s for fermentation if the ambient temp outside is colder than that.
I was thinking about buying a simple lightbulb assembly and hanging it on the side and hooking that to the temp controller instead to create a heating element of sorts during the colder months.
Does anyone have experience with something like this?
Will it work?
What size lightbulb would you use?
Any concerns with this approach?
Thanks for the input.
