Default Would this work well for lagering

I am buying one of these http://cgi.ebay.com/Danby-DWC310BL-W...QQcmdZViewItem

from a friend and im thinking it will work quit well for lagering. It seems to be large enough to fit a single carboy (if I take out a few racks) and the temps can be controlled from 42-57 degrees. What do you all think

Lagering is done @ 30-32*F so this wouldn't work.

Didn't you ask the same question last week?

Except for the glass doors (that let damaging light in) i cant see why it wouldnt. Most lagers are fermented at 45-50 degrees so it seems like it would be perfect.

Somebody was looking at a similar item for a kegger.

Anyway, you can ferment in the wine cellar and lager in the kegger. Buy a couple extra cornies & you're set.
