Excellent alternative to a fermentation fridge/cold crashing can be tough
I really like the FTSs for my chronical 7 gal. Have done a few batches on it now and it holds ale temps perfectly. I used they system with the included flat lid for the first 2 batches and it worked fine, but co2 transfers to kegs made the lid like badly, due to the flat lid being a bit flimsy. I have since moved the immersion coil to the body of the Chronical fermenter which allows me to use my stock domed lid with 1.5" TC. This configuration is much is much better and now mirrors the brew master edition of the Chronicals. I had to drill 2 17mm holes on the body of my fermenter to do this, was very easy. I used a small yeti ice chest and changed 1.5L frozen bottles for my chill source for my first 2 batches. I now use a small minifridge that has a 2 gallon water container for my chill source so that I don't have to constantly change bottles. Ale temperatures are very easy to maintain with this method, however I have attempted to cold crash and have found that this setup has it's limitations. Can get it to low 50s and mabey high 40s for a short period. I've read that a the chill source water volume should be at least equivalent to the amount of beer your chilling, so that definitely my issue. I did cold crash on my first batch using the ice chest with ice and was able to achieve 30* range, but had to add ice very often to maintain. Other than that it does what it says it does and I'm very happy with it.

Works great! I have used this with 4 brews. Holds and maintains temps. If your looking for ways to maintain fermentation temps in your SS Brewtech conical this is the way to go.
