Re: Temperature Control
- Hi Greg,
Good to hear there are others homebrewing in the tropics.
I've used ice bottles in an insulated box and have had good results

a temperature controller.
If you have any photos of your gear or brews please post some to the
members photos area.
I am officially in Metro Manila now and will be for a half a year.
Anyone know where to get malt or malt extract in the NCR?
