Yes, that was before the Ranco. I wanted to make certain it could at least reach freezing or else I would need to rewire the thermostat completely.

do you have any problems maintaining higher temps such as 55F?

This fridge might actually hold at 55* without using a Ranco. I've kept mine in the garage and it has held at 40* on a setting of 3. It intially got down to 20* when I had it set to full cold, so setting it on 5 (or 1, I forget which is coldest) could net you 55*.

Right now its holding the temperature at 33 degrees with no problems at all. I'm sure it would also do 55...

can you fit a 6.5 gal carboy in there with all of the modifications that you did. Right now I want to use it to lager but later I want to use it as a kegerator. I just don't have any kegging equipment right now.

For sure... I used mine as a fermentation cabinet with a 6.5 gallon carboy for a few weeks while I was waiting on my tower.

Bought one last week - just waiting on parts from Northern Brewer and Micromatic right now. Then it's off to Lowes for the remaining hardware bits and a hole saw.

Anyone compile a parts list for tower and faucette parts, shanks, fittings, nuts, etc. that you can post/share? Part numbers or models along with suppliers and prices would be a big plus, too. Trying to do this and clueless, but I did buy the 4912 today!
