Getting a Better Bottle carboy would allow me to lager a beer. I have plans to brew a cream ale in February or March and lager it through the cold months using:
- A styrofoam box that I got from Mike…looks like it was used for Omaha steaks
- Snow and/or ice from the outside
- If there isn’t any snow or ice outside, I will freeze half liter water bottles and use them
I think that I can regulate temperature just enough without freezing the beer. Without a spare fridge, I am willing to give this makeshift ice box a try.
