No there draped over the top and are mostly submerged in the water bath to keep it cool. There opaque plastic fermenters are you sure they keep light outDo you need to keep fermenters warm this time of year? I would have thought the opposite. Fermenters themselves keep out enough of the light.
They keep enough light out in my experience. However draped in water, the temperature stands a better chance of staying low and constant so now I understand. Nothing wrong with continuing what you are doing in that case.No there draped over the top and are mostly submerged in the water bath to keep it cool.

water bath method kicks ass Cocko! Really easy too.
1. Put fermenter or cube in water bath.
That black mold is carcinogenic. Don't you watch House MD?I suspect the mould has come from some spilled wort around the lip of the lid.
A small amount mould is normally ok except if it happens to be a penicillin producing strain and you or drinkers of the beer happen to have anaphylactic responses to penicillin.
No mate all I did was bleach the family tub then rinse like a bastard and spray with sanitiser then fill with water and change out frozen bottles to keep the temp down.. lowest I got was 16*C and highest was about 22*C, the room got upto about 31*C. I'm pretty pedantic so if I thought of it I probably would have added sanitiser to the water but I'm glad I didn't now the more experienced brewers have said not to worry...
