How to Pick a LockView Instructable »
Fun read! I actually found this able a while back! I went with a heater I found on Craigslist. Can't beat a good deal. Also fun fact I'm currently in St. Paul visiting the in-laws for the holidays. Hopefully the chickens' heaters are working.
Definitely, any old lamp would work as long as it can hold the bulb still in the tin, to ensure it isn't baking around on the sides.I live in Colorado. There has been one sub zero night so far and the water frosted over but did not freeze entirely. The ladies were able to poke holes in the frost and drink from the water below. If it got any colder I would substitute the current bulb for a 60W or 70W bulb. But it has not been necessary for me
Visiting several beer homebrewing sites. Lactose was one of the higher recommended products. As well as Xylitol (https://www.naturesflavors.com/natural-ingredients/64032-xylitol-sweetener-powder-natural-made-from-birch-bark-low-calorie-sugar-substitute.htm)
I have had many surprise volcanos at the dinner table as well.One thing I was thinking of was I had a cider kit with a non fermenting sugar. I don't know exactly what that is but it would sweeten without feeding the yeast. I would look into that. I have not tried this method yet.
Because this is similar to kombucha, apparently the shelf life is indefinite. However, I wouldn't drink it more than a week or two after I've opened it. but that's just me. I hope this helps, sorry for the delayed response.
