It's has been done with the freezer being the kegorator and the fridge being a fermentation fridge. On side by sides the freezer portion sends air to the fridge portion, so the fridge side will always be warmer than the freezer side.

Just got mine finished. Very simple, but it gets the job done.

@agodfrey11 - I was actually thinking that it had to be that way but I was talking to one of our engineers today, I work for a cold storage, and he was saying that it should be able to be done by controlling the expansion valves but that is way out of my knowledge. Maybe I should give him some brew and have him figure it out for me but they deal mostly with ammonia not Freon but apply the same principles

@Hang Glider - The link didn't take me anywhere.

Thanks both for your help, if any one else has an idea let me know.

By the way, I may have been not think on Sunday because today when i tried re-searching the web I get a lot of information. Maybe it was because I didn't have any brew in me!

Hi. How is that drip tray attached? I used magnets because I was afraid that cooling lines likely ran behind the front skin and didn't want to drill there.

Thanks.

In that photo I was using double sided "Heavy Duty" 3M tape. It looked great, but unfortuantely it failed after only a few hours.

It is currently held on with "industrial strength" velcro. The velcro does not look as good because it does not hang perfectly level since it is thicker and "gives" a little.

I might try the 3M tape again and give it longer cure before letting it hold any weight. The package said it could hold up to 10 pounds.
