So im brewing my first lager. Its about to come out for a d rest...but I realized the little wine fridge that I have wont get down to lagering temps. Is there any way to ramp up the power of my fridge? Is that what a temp controller does?
what temp does the fridge get down to?
The temp controller does not "ramp up the power" of your fridge. It simply turns the fridge on and off to maintain a preset temp.
Got to get to at least 40. Time to get chest freezer.
you can try adding insulation to the top, sides and front (and maybe even part of the back.. even the bottom if you don't mind raising the whole thing up some...
