Building a beer cooling shed
« on: October 25, 2010, 02:42:00 PM »
I remember reading detailed plans on a website for a shed that used an airconditioner for cooling (probably vegetables) but certainly usable for keeping beer. I've lost the link. (It was not Jamil Z's  mrmalty.com). I've tried Google but all I get is commercial sites.
Does anyone know of plans for such a shed...it could have been a dream, but I hope not.

That looks pretty cool, I'll be interested to hear if anyone has one and how well it works.  I think I'll add a walk-in to my projects list :)

Uhh . . . it didn't.  I forgot I was proctoring a BJCP exam Saturday, so between the exam and the samples after I didn't think I should be running my saw.  Sunday I had to do some stuff for my wife, plus watch football :)  I managed to decided what cuts I should make, but didn't make them.  I should be able to get to it tonight and at least get the hopper built.
