This is the infamous Sanyo 4912 refrigerator that is commonly used to build a kegerator. This one has been set up as a dual-stage, temperature controlled fermentation chamber for home brewing. It started new less than six months ago and had the stock inner door removed and replaced with a piece of black acrylic. It has a Ranco dual-stage thermostat, a fermwrap for heat, comes with a stainless steel thermowell, and it easily fits a 6.5 gallon carboy. It could be used as-is for perfect fermentation or made into a kegerator. It is in basically new condition and the parts alone cost over $400. Local pickup only (SF Bay Area) I am forced to sell due to a move.

I have this exact same setup and it's the ideal temp controlled fermentation setup for 5 gallon batches. My 2cents.

Dang, looks good! If I had the cash or the space I'd do it.

You might want to put the word "beer" in your ad somewhere ... that's usually what I search for when looking for brewing stuff on CL. (I may not be representative of all CL searchers, tho!).
