I've got a mortgage, student loan, car loan---I'd rather not drop big bucks here. All the minfridges I see are too small to fit a carboy+airlock. I found a big fridge-freezer at Sam's Club for like $325...not too shabby. Along with a temp regulator from an HBS, that would do the trick.
Does anyone know of a better way to make this happen? They also have a chest freezer for like $170 (I already have one of them, but I actually use it to store food). Could I upfit that thing with a temp regulator? Or is that no good?
Any other suggestions?
