The summer temps in my garage regularly get into the high 80's degF. Thanks! - Jeff
So how did it turn out?? I just received a the same 7g Chronical for Christmas (its arrived already!) and have a 1.7 cf fridge. Didn't think about raising the fridge, not sure there is that much need for a small chamber?? I also have ordered the small pc fan and will install in the fridge, not sure if I will run all time or just tie in with the cooling. Any thoughts? Am thinking of a heating pad for warming as needed. My basement temps run 55 in winter to low to mid 70s in summer, so not a huge range. Will also use the 2" solid insulation as well as remove fridge door. Controlling temps all with a STC 1000. I can't wait to take to the next level with controlling temps, have made some great beers, but looking to always improve!
