I hear ya, this has definatly been a cold one for Fl. The hunting has accually been worth while this year.Hi Burch from a neighbor across the State. I'm near Bradenton & Sarasota.
What do you mean hot? My biggest problem for the past few months was COLD!
I was doing my wine making inside my office, but carrying the buckets and carboys up and down the stairs was getting to be too much for my old back.
Now I'm on my back porch and yeah, it's hot. Right now it's not terrible, except for the fluctuation up and down. Now in another month or two, the heat will be up there and be a problem.
They claim it`ll warm in cold climates and cool in hot climateshttp://www.homebrewit.com/aisle/3030I would think that would keep it too warm.. During fermentation, heat is created and if you wrap it in that I think it would make it worse.. Maybe if you put some ice packs inside that cover??
