Thanks for your replies. Just a follow-up question. What if you have a large quantity of beer and you'd like to keep it cool, do you think placing it in an airconditioned room is practical?

Storing beer in air conditioned room

Postby billvelek » Thu Oct 11, 2007 2:51 am

Air-conditioning isn't going to hurt your beer, but your beer isn't going to get any colder than the air around it. I'm not sure what your question is. Some folks use a small air conditioning unit to cool a small insulated closet to drop the temp down pretty well, and they probably tinker with the thermostat, but I don't know how cold the closets get. They're probably just achieving 'celler temps' -- probably not much below 50F, but that would be a good temp for me to drink most of my beer.

Cheers.

Thanks again for all your replies guys! I am actually considering converting a spare room into a walk-in cooler. My brother-in-law who lives across the street and who's into beer brewing will store his stuff there too. He's the one who's going to do the renovation to convert the room into a walk-in cooler. He's actually the one who suggested it after coming across this website http://brewerycooling.com/

I'm interested to know if anybody here has tried this coolbot device. I would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

I agree, it's over-hyped. "Energy efficient"--wow, it's a thermostat, of course it runs on not much power. The A/C you buy separately is going to kill your electricity bill though.

Also, I make a point of not buying things from people who can't spell. That many typos is beyond accident or coincidence.

Greetings
I came across this backlink to our site ( http://www.brewerycooling.com )and of course had to join in on the conversation.

We are distributors of the Coolbot which turns an insulated room into a walk-in cooler by using an air-conditioner. We are also lousy spellers :(

We wanted to explain a couple of things and (hopefully clarify as well).

The Coolbot was invented by a farmer to keep his produce cold. He first tried hooking a thermostat up to an a/c unit hoping to avoid having to buy a costly walk-in cooler. A thermostat DOES work, but only to a limited extent (like down to about 50 degrees). It also voids the warranty, but the larger problem is actually that if you try to go much lower than say 50 degrees, the front of the a/c unit quickly becomes a solid block of ice... and there's no way to predict when it's going to happen. It depends on the ambient temperature outside, the heat of what you are putting in, how often you are opening and closing the door etc. So you just end up setting it at a higher temperature than you really want (hoping) that it won't freeze up.

So he invented The CoolBot which has two sensors and a microcontroller making decisions about when to turn the compressor on and off. It does it without voiding the warranty on the air conditioner, and it allow your to access 90% of the BTU's of the air conditioner so you can keep the room down to 32 degrees without ever having any freeze-ups.

It also uses a LOT less electricity than a walk-in cooler does, not to mention the repair bills etc.

Once he made this for his farm, people asked him about having one for their farm so he started manufacturing them and selling them. THEN beer and wine makers and morticians (!) started asking if they could buy one too.

When he told me that people who make beer were requesting these, I said I would make a web site that would be specific to beer makers so it would be clear about how it could help in the production process and the storing process. I SHOULD have then called up the customers who bought it for beer and said "how was this helpful?" "how did you use it?" "why did you want this instead of some other option"? But I didn't...

And now I have lousy web content and people dissing the product in this forum :(

If anyone can help me fix the text I would really appreciate it. I hate the thought that we might been throwing lousy research up there and looking like idiots. I know that this Coolbot is better than slapping a thermostat onto an air-conditioner. It does much more than that, it really does make decisions and then takes actions. There is also a money back guarantee and no one has ever asked for that in fact everyone says it is a great solution (especially the morticians :-) )

Thanks to Beertools.com and for all of you for starting this conversation.
