Half chest freezer Half fermentation chamber
So i have like 6 pounds of hops now, and no place to store them.... I think that SWMBO would like to have a chest freezer, and I would like to have a fermentation chamer. I had an idea on how to get both, but I wanted to run it by the gurus.
I was thinking that i could split a chest freezer into two sections. the first section would be a freezer, and it would be controlled by the OEM temperature controller.
There would be a wall between the sections comprised of rigid foam board and plastic paneling. A fan would blow cold air from the freezer to fermentation chamber controlled by a Johnson Temperature Controller.
The wall would be 3" of rigid foam paneling, and would hopefully seal to the lid when the lid is shut.
Do you think this will work?
