Fermentation Fridge
« on: March 05, 2012, 08:59:12 PM »
My wife has generously offered to give me her refrigerator from the kitchen "for free" to use as a fermentation fridge as long as I buy her a new one. The only problem is that it's a side by side and doesn't seem to be the best choice for holding more than one carboy at a time. Any ideas on modifications to make it work? Thanks, Kris

I can't speak from experience but here's some interesting results I got from searching:

Looks like the temp of the fridge side is controlled by the freezer side. As you can see in that last one he just opened up both sides.

Looks like a fun project!
