The shelving looks sturdy enough. Can you get a bucket fermenter on the bottom shelf? It looks like a tight fit.

My 7.8gallon bucket would never fit down there. But I have 5 X 6 gallon buckets to use up before using that would ever be necessary.

How is the vent controlled? As I understand it the compressor turns on and cools the freezer and the fridge just siphons off air from the freezer to get cold.
If that's correct, how can you ensure that the fridge stays cool, while the freezer gets cold but neither gets as cold as they are actually designed?
Does it make more sense to hook up the freezer to the compressor so the freezer temp triggers the compressor, then only have the fridge temp controller operate the blower? Or is that how it operates already?
Thanks!
