Greetings - I am a new home brewer and this will be my first time brewing during the summer season… I also live in a warm climate. So my plan is to pick up a mini fridge for use during active fermentation for ales, pilsners & lagers.
Here is my concern / question: If I put my 6 gallon carboy in the refrigerator during active fermentation, will there be enough air space to disperse the expelled carbon dioxide? Does the fermentor need ventilation? Or, would it be alright to set the temperature and just leave it in there for a week? Thanks for your response in advance.
