Hear you on that ... but temperature control is a very nice luxury. 
Multi-tasking, easy, drink beer and watch telly.

Of course, I don't blame anyone for using it.

Yes I agree Womble. I have only just started to use temp. control in last few brews and I really like it because my brew shed gets so flaming hot in the summer it can't be good for the end result and now when I brew a lager I have the option of being able to drop the temp. right down low for a couple of weeks summer or winter.

My brews improved no end once I could get stable temperature.  There can be quite large swings even when using a brew belt.  And in the summer, I can keep a keg of beer at 12°C and have a lager fermenting at the same time ... nice luxury. My beers would be pretty much undrinkable in the middle of summer ... 25°C ?

In my house in Mancunia i can keep pretty stable temps in the ale range 18-21 ish most of the year. And i have a cooler place that does 13-15 ish in winter. In summer it can get to 22-25+ at times. That will be my Kveik/saison period this year. But i dont brew as much in summer, I'm out and about more. Maybe i will use the fridge in summer this year to ferment beers for the first 3-4 days, once a month or so.

I added a tettnang hop tea to this cos it was kind of sweet and winey, and it turned out really well, the added floral spice flavours work really well with the Hallertau Blanc. Very nice lager, quite proud if it. Popular with the sprogs too.
