I've been lurking here a while and have learned a ton so far about brewing. I am very new to brewing, have my first batch in primary, brewed it up Friday (Sierra Nevada clone). I have a feeling this is going to be a lifelong hobby (ok... obsession).
I acquired a Haier HSE04WNABB mini-fridge this weekend for free and am trying to figure out how I could use it for lagering. Have any of you made any modifications to this fridge to fit a 5 gallon carboy? If not, do any of you have any general advice on how to make these modifications?
It has the shelf in the bottom where the condenser is located in back, and a freezer that will get in the way of an airlock. I might be interested in converting this to a kegerator in the future, depending on how far this goes, so I would like to keep that in mind if I do modify it, but am mostly concerned about fitting a 5 gallon carboy in here for lagering.
Is it even worth trying with this model? Here are some pictures and a link to the Haier website with this model:
Thanks for any advice, links, etc.
