Yeast can be a fickle worker; sometimes it works too fast or too slow and on occasion it can get a little gassy while it's laboring away. Fermentation temperature is usually the final rein a homebrewer has to grab in order to gain control over their beer. Once you can consistently control the temperature of your wort as it transforms into beer you will be able to reliably reproduce any style without worry.
It may seem like an overwhelming DIY project for some, however, this keezer (freezer converted to a kegerator) can be an extremely simple and cheap to build - you only need two pieces of equipment! That being said, there are different levels complexity that can be added, so we will walk through all of them to find out what's best for you.
