Nope, just mounted the compressor so it is facing upwards so no oil gets into the cooling lines and have the door taken off facing down. No freezer portion to this fridge so I'm not terribly worried about any frost buildup pouring onto the wood
Well, the door is constructed and we took this a step further by putting another thermometer on the door to accurately measure the temperature on the inside of the cabinet as well as the inside of the conical. Let me know what you guys think!
BTW, there's now a marzen fermenting inside the new conical sitting comfortably at around 50°F
That looks very nice, love the front! Target had some medium size dorm fridges today that were advertising dry erase paint. It would be cool to do what you've done with a marker board fridge band and then another hardwood cap to trim the very top.
Very nice. I love the old time "Ice Box" look. I will be interested to see if you have any moisture problems. My ferm chamber is converted refrigerator with an internal freezer. With temps at 50 Deg F the freezer compartment frosts over, then thaws when the compressor stops. The freezer has a tray under it to collect the drippings from the freezer, and I find I have to empty it about once a week. I am wondering if over the span of a ferment, if you get some moisture inside. Let us know how it goes. Nice work.
