I haven't been able to find the answer to this in my fermenting research. I have been keeping a bucket of fermenting food in our bathroom tub, which is perfectly ok with me. The rest of the family finds it stinky and gross. So, I am wondering if I can keep the bucket outside in a cooler to keep it warm-ish but the feed still alive and fermenting. We are in the Pacific Northwest where temps are generally in the 40's to low 50's in the winter and down to the 30's at night. Ideal temps for fermenting are 70's and above I think, but I am wondering if the fermentation will still happen, albeit slower, if bucket is in a cooler spot. I'm assuming I won't be able to keep the bucket and feed at 70's temp outside in a cooler--and I don't want to have to do a lot to heat it. Thank you for any help and or ideas!
