Product Review-Beer Use: Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Wireless Mini Dehumidifer

I went through my first full cycle of a beer in my ferementation chamber (a chest freezer with temperature control) with an . Works great! I usually find 1/2″ to 1″ of water in the bottom of the freezer after a beer is done. Not a single drop, not even any moisture in there. For $20, this is an investment well worth it. Hopefully it works as advertised drying out by plugging it in. The unit is made out of heavy plastic and looks to be very durable. It comes with a hook to hang it, I hooked it around the glass one gallon carboy I use as a blowoff. There are no batteries or plugs to deal with, the beads inside the unit absorb moisture. The say the beads will last 10 years and there is a 5 year warranty on the unit. This model is supposed to handle 500 cubic feet of area so it is quite a bit of overkill for the space inside a chest freezer; however with the ferment going with warm air and liquids, it is a pretty humid environment so overkill is probable best. The unit is oval in shape, about 8″ long, 6″ high and a couple inches thick so it is easy to fit wherever you need it.

There is the unit in my freezer, hooked on the 1 gallon jug.

I give this product 5 out of 5 hop cones.
