If you're going to use the refrigerator on a temp controller, then you will not be able to freeze in the freezer. It takes a lot to keep a freezer frozen, and once it starts cycling based on the refrigerator temperature, the freezer will no longer freeze.

Just a little update. I put the first lager in the chamber last night. When i went to bed it was at 16C. I was pleasantly surprised this morning to find the temp reached my set temp of 12C. I gave it a little help to get down to that temp quicker by placing 2 ice packs inside but it is maintaining a .5C differential without the ice packs now that it is down to temp. Next time i will cool the wort all the way down to its fermentation temp.
