Sorry to high jack this thread Here is a wooden box i want to make into a fermentation chamber...I need to build a collar and insulate but was wondering what the easiest solution would be to cool this...I dont see taking the door off a mini fridge being an option, unless I can detach the coils and parts and add them to this...Will a small Air condition Unit work? Im really clueless and my searches come up with mostly converted fridges or AC units. Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

i have been wanting to build a 2 chamber fermentation and kegging/ cold storage chamber. i have a massive fridge that you would normally see in a
7-1 or convenience store. i wanted to keep one chamber at fermentation temps and 1 chamber at serving/ storage temps i.e.. 38ish deg. anybody see how this is possible with one cooling unit. i want to stay away from upper and lower chambers and do side by side as i do 20 gallon batches and I'm almost ready to buy my blichmann conical. 3 Dog is that what you are doing with your unit ?

$50 dollar Craig's list freezer, circa 1970, avocado green baby!!!

I added the temp controller and the bottle rack:
(the duck tape down at the bottom left hand corner keeps the door shut.)

.



Thats a pool thermometer hanging down. The outside glass got broken in the pool, but it is still pretty accurate.

Built this from a minifridge. It can fit 2 carboys in it and the drawer slides out.
