keeping 4/6 Demi johns warm

Postby GaryG » Fri Mar 01, 2019 20:27

I am back brewing some cheeky vimto for the summer. I have 2 DJ's brewing at the moment in my cold basement but I use a heating ring that can keep 2 warm. If I bought an aquarium heater and sat 4/6 Demi johns is a container filled with water halfway up the DJ with the water kept warm with the aquarium heater. Would this work ?

It's exactly what I used to do. Worked fine. I put a little bleach in the water to discourage unpleasantness. And I made a lid out of a sheet of polystyrene that came with some delivery. Lagged gaps with old teatowels. But you don't need to go that far if you don't mind the extra few pennies for the heater to be on longer
