It's easy to keep it cool.
1: In hot weather wrap towelling around your fermenter like a skirt. Gather the top of the skirt into the lid.
2: Pour cold water into the recess of the lid.
3: Add water when it starts to dry out.
This simple trick will help you keep your fermenter nice and cool on hot summer days. The hotter the day gets, the better this works. If you want to make it colder, set a fan to blow gently on the fermenter. Don't forget to keep the water topped up.
