Default Quickie keezer collar

I'd like to make something nicer eventually, but this'll do for now. The base is plywood, the top is cherry.

And yes, for those with sharp eyes, yes that *is* masonry waterproofing paint

Nice work! Did you drill through the back of it?

Drill through the back of what?

If you're asking about the hinges, I haven't mounted them yet. I've got a lager in there now and don't want to leave the lid off while I work on it until it's ready to be lagered in my other fridge.

This was just a demo shot

I think Ed is asking about the wires through the back of the freezer.

Nope. I ran the sensor wire for the Love controller through the defrost drain hole and stuffed the hole with cotton.

the little white brackets once held a shelf or divider (I have them in my 25cf freezer). In my case I drilled small holes in them and used them to hang (with some wire) my White Labs tube of Austin Home Brew Supply coolie-pack goo with the sensor probe through the lid for my buffered probe setup. I bet he's using the existing bracket like I am.

That's exactly it. The sensor is just hanging on the bracket at the moment.

Do you actually put the sensor in the goo?
