Extreme what? Don't most fridges run at about that temp?

If you disable what you are calling the freezer, you've just trashed your fridge. That's how all the small mini-fridges work.

For starters, you'll want to move this to the electric forum.

Yes, you can use 110, but you'll get about one quarter of the power.

How is the beer straight from the keg? Satisfactory? Are you losing co2 in the bottling process? What is your process to fill the bottles? A little more info would help.

No, do not add honey to the primary to cooled wort. At the very least, add it just before flameout so it hits pasteurizing temps. But regardless, you will not get any honey flavor out of it....

I second the reduction of honey malt. As for orange, zest in pot 5 minutes before flameout. Then maybe more thrown into the primary after 7 or 8 days. Then rack into bottles/keg after 4/5 days.

Wait, wait. How about a guy bent over grabbing his ankles and the co2 comes out his @**. Or maybe combine it with a tiny pinwheel. Oh boy, the ideas are just flowing.
