“Tried out the cooler for the first time yesterday, and wasn't disappointed. Using 3 frozen 2 liter bottles, I brought the temperature down to 58F from 69F in 12 hours. Good thing I'm using Notty yeast, because i didn't expect that much of a temp drop in that short of time.
Super simple, super effective, and super easy. Highly recommended! ”
“I have posted in this thread a number of times about how pleased I am with this cooler 'bag'. I even bought a second one to get me thru the summer.
However, I have even more proof that my money was extremely well spent.......
I live just outside of New Orleans (Metairie) a suburb and as some may know, we were lucky enough, almost exactly 7 years to the day to have another troubling hurricane that was supposed to be an easy one (I've been thru dozens in my life) but this one dumped lots of rain b ”
“I am having tremendous success keeping my lager at a steady 50/52 (I use adhesive temp strips, so probably 51. Ambient temperature ~70) I froze five 3 liter Poland Spring bottles, put four in, and each morning and afternoon I replace a watery one with a frozen one. It is fermenting away, and I couldn't be happier. This product should definitely advertise the fact it can be used to cool down to lager temps, as that would be a big selling point for folks. ”
“This thing is awesome. After a failed SOF build, I was going to give a swamp cooler a try but didn't really feel like dealing with the mess. This product seemed like a great alternative.
Temperature is holding great and I am really happy with my purchase.
Pros: Cheaper than SOF, low tech cooling solution, cleaner than swamp cooler
Cons: None come to mind, loving it so far ”
“Used my cooler on my current batch. I've just been using a few of those cold packs and am easily keeping temps down where I want them.
On top of that, I ordered another one today, and I had a tracking number from UPS in about two hours. Great product and great service. ”
“Im in SoCal, with a very warm garage. This hold 65-70 degrees all day with a liter of ice. Very nice drop. ”
“I really like the cool brewing bag overall. I have used it twice. The first time I filled the bag with water half way up my carboy. The second time I went with no water inside the bag, just air. It worked well in both cases.
I live in the deep south and my house is at 80F (which sucks for me and the beer). I am easily able to keep the fermenter in the mid to low 60's with the cool brewing bag with both the water bath and just air methods.
Another great thing is the bag collapses and is easily s ”
“Over a week in and I'm so glad that I switched to using this product. Temps have been extremely consistent in the low to mid 60s when the outside ambient temp was 78-79F. Great product, and not having to have to monitor a swamp cooler is very nice. ”
“I'm already very satisfied with this product. Getting consistent temps without all of the fluctuations that I used to have should result in better tasting beer. And in the end, it's all about better tasting beer! ”
