Fermentation Chamber.

So after my second batch of homebrew, SWMBO demanded I find a better place for my carboys. Was it the beersplosion all over the closet? Could have been. I don't really know

But.. OPPORTUNITY! I happened to have an old mini fridge sitting unused in the garage so with some googling and the help of my much-more-carpenter-friendly Father In Law. I'll have a few more "in progress" pictures shortly. Technology is being unfriendly this week.

Built my little work bench at the same time, so planned it out with that in mind. Most of the front facing boards on the left half of the bench pull off with 1-2 screws and aren't structural. So the chamber slides right underneath, and then the "trim" covers up that it's not just all one piece.

Essentially a 2x4 Frame built snugly around the fridge. Covered inside and out with 1/2" foam insulation, all joints taped to seal it. Then the outside was covered with 1/2" plywood.

Just happy with how it turned out!
