Making MTS in the Winter
I basically got one cycle in on my MTS before the cold hit. My bins are in my garage that probably has rarely seen 50°F since October. I am not seeing much change between cycles, and am assuming it is due to temps being too low for bacteria to do their thing.
Does anyone see a problem with throwing a spare aquarium heater, buried in the MTS, to keep the temp up? I'm assuming that the dirt would have similar conductive/insulative properties to water and the heater shouldn't over heat. If I throw a couple towels over the bin, I'd think it keep the bin nice and warm.
