I'd REALLY like to get into brewing lagers. The primary issue right now is that I don't have a ton of places to keep things cool. I have a couple fridges but most are full and can really only be used to serve, not ferment or lager.
I did just come across a small chest freezer in the corner of my basement. It can fit two corny kegs (won't fit any "normal" shaped carboys). I also have at least 2-3 corny kegs that are in various states of completion. After pricing out replacement parts (some need literally everything) I'm thinking it'd be cheaper to use them as fermenters for lagers.
My question: am I thinking this through all the way? Is there anything I'm missing?
I'll have at least two corny kegs set up to ferment/lager in. The freezer holds two corny's (plus room for some smaller vessels, perhaps for blow off tubes, etc.). I do have a temp controller for the freezer.
I shouldn't have any issues doing everything in the single freezer, right? I can just adjust the temperature as needed for the various stages? Any other gear I'm forgetting? I'm still not 100% familiar with the lager brewing process, still reading through a bunch of articles and posts.
