How are you going to cool three for proper fermentation temperatures?

Hmmm. A row of old refrigerators set at varying temps for fermenting, lagering, conditioning, tapping... Now where to put it? Heck, who needs a garage anyway?

My brew room has the outlets and space for at least 5 more fridges. The power bill would suck though.

I'm already feeding 4 fridges throughout the house.

Buy one big enough and you can be buried in your fermentor.
Probably still cheaper than a quality coffin...

Or, I could be cremated, gristed, thrown in the mash, and be fermented as beer in my fermenter.

Its a circle of life. . . I'm in touch with my Karma. . . .

When you get that many, it's worth looking for alternatives. Like a small walk-in cool room for ale fermentation and keg conditioning. and a regulated freezer for lagering. Then you just need the keg fridge, plus your normal refridgerators and freezers.

Yeah, it adds up to a whopping electric bill, I'm sure.

Sort of a Valentine Michael Smith "Grok" thing, ala Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land.

This is also a project I'm looking into...



My alternative to a walk in cooler at the very least would be a "lagering/serving bar" where the entire underneath of the bar will be a refrigerator and will hold up to a dozen cornie kegs. Still in the planning stage (planning to slip it past the wife that is).

She knows it's coming tho...

there is a picture of such said creature in the last BYO (I think....don't have it handy).

BTW, my last post, in retrospect, kinda weirds me out.

The true circle of life (Karma as well) would be you drinking the beer made from your fermented ashes...





No need to be weirded.
