Side by Side Kegerator

I finally finished my side-by-side kegerator and have my homebrew flowing thru the lines! I don't have any "build" pics since this has already been done and just wanted to give a big thanks to all of the previous posters that inspired me to tackle this project.

Looks great man - quick question how do you keep the freezer side from freezing?

BBL_Brewer 12-22-2011 04:00 PM

I was wondering that myself. Using a controler I assume? Does it keep both sides the same temp?

I am using 2 Love Controllers. The one on the freezer side just turns the compressor on and off, just like the original thermostat, but with a greater degree of accuracy and range. The one on the refrigerator side controls 2 AC fans (push and pull) and a small 200 watt heater. It is designed to be a fermentor (I have to get going on a new brew) in which I have been able to attain 71 degrees with no problem. I have had as much as a 30 degree temp difference between the 2 sides.

Interesting, so the fridge side gets no cooling from the compressor anymore it only gets supplied by cold air via fan?

cas-are you in the ANG by chance?

cas3439 12-22-2011 11:32 PM

Skagdog, yes I am in the PA ANG. I have no idea how you would have known that unless you are somehow connected to the wife thru Facebook...

I just went back and looked at the pics I posted and have decided that it could be the Erdinger cases from Germany stacked up next to the fridge that tipped you off.

I recognized the Crates. I'm in the AK ANG and we go to GK from time to time as well...

Well that's a sigh of relief knowing that it wasn't thru the wife and Facebook!! Take Care
