Default Nice Fermentation Room!

Hey Mitchell, nice job. Can you let us know how cold you are able to get in your fermentation room? I'm curious to know if the A/C unit will get it down to cold crash temperatures. Did you put a floor in it? Or is it sitting on the concrete? Is there a door threshold? I'm thinking of doing the same type of room, hence all the questions. Thanks!

We can get the fermentation room down to 60% and stay there. That is just using the standard 10000 BTU a/c unit. If I wanted to get colder I could just move the thermostat to a different spot. It is just on the concrete floor no need to add another floor. And yes the door is a metal pre hung insulated door with threshold.
