As a follow up to another question... I have a chest freezer that would easily fit a carboy. I was wondering if I could attach it to my electronic temperature control module and have it maintain lagering temps. Anyone have any success with this?

This seems like a much easier option than trying to fandangle and fit a carboy into a mini fridge...if it works that is.

It's the exact same using a chest freezer and mini fridge.
One day you will look around you house and laugh, because you have now have more refrigerators/freezers in your house dedicated to beer than you do food

This happened to me last week
Chest Freezer Keezer
Stand up Fridge Fermenting
mini Fridge bottles/Yeast
Standup in Kitchen
Chest Freezer in garage. ( Will sneak hops in here when I get to bulk purchasing)
Tap Room Hobo

I should have stuck to four fingers in Vegas.
