If you are a brewer then you know the importance of using a temperature controlled fermenter. However, it is not always easy to find a temperature controlled fermenter for home brewing because you will often need to buy one on sale or can get your hands on one second hand. So, what is the best option if you don't want to spend a lot of money buying one that you may have to work hard to keep at a good temperature. If you can't get your hands on a temperature controlled fermenter then you could invest in a keg to store your beer in. You should keep in mind though that even though you are saving money, you will still have to deal with the hassle of cleaning and sanitizing it every so often.
Now that you have found a way to keep your beer cool, you will need to maintain the appropriate temperature. When you are looking for a temperature controlled fermenter, you will find that they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. One of the easiest ways to keep them from warping, warping to lose oxygen and turning into a puddle is to use plastic or stainless steel. You may be worried about buying one but there are also ones that are an inexpensive metal if you want to save some cash.
It is possible to buy a temperature controlled fermenter on sale from a local beer shop, but there are many different stores that sell them as second hand or on sale. They are also available from the big stores as well as in the home improvement department and even used ones. A cheaper option may be to get a keg for the occasional serving of beer that you want to have for a night-time party or get together. If you decide to go this route then make sure you consider it carefully so that you don't end up wasting money.
