What kind of temp will the room hold? How are you controlling the temp? I'd be interested in finding out what kind of condenser you used. I have a similar closet for fermenting and storage and use a portable AC unit. It's not ideal though as I can only control the temp down to about 62*F. I can get the room colder, but then I can't control the temp well as I'm using the unit in dehumidify mode.

I am Using a Tecumseh 115 volt unit using r404a Which makes all the difference in the world. Its a lower temperature coolant. I have had the unit down to 10 Degrees and held it there of 24 hrs Right now I keep it at 36 degrees With a Penn Temperature controler (digital)

I am actually doing a 32 drip tray on a 12"x7' bar top With a stainless steel back splash. Hopefully Granite but I'm not sure yet

Should I keep the thermostat in a glass of water to keep the unit from cycling on as much?

Interesting project - looks like you've used the space wisely...

I keep my thermostat in a White Labs vial full of goop from an ice pack... its worked very well. My walk-in has been up and running for over a year now and has become an integral part of our house. We keep it at 36 degrees year round.

John Beer Does the goop help keep the unit from cycling as often? Is so doesn't it have to run longer to establish the temp again?
