Why would covering the trug and the FV inside it with insulating blankets, sleeeping bags or whatever else interfere in any way with the water volume in the trug and the heater inside the water?If i wrap itnin a sleeping bag i wont have much room in the frug for the water or the heater. would putting another heater in and getting the out side water higher warm the inside water do you think
I usually add about 10 litres of water to the bath. Then when the FV is put into the bath that means my 50w heater is fully immersed, but the water level in the bath is about 50mm below the level of the beer. If you have the two levels about the same or worse the water level in the bath higher than beer level there is a likelihood of the FV floating which clearly is to be avoided.does the water in the bath need to be the same level as the water in the FV? if the water is below the level of the FV will it be inconsistent tempretures inside the FV?
