Someone gave me a free mini-fridge but it's really small. It's 16" H x 16" D x 18" W. Those are the inside measurements.

Has anyone ever lifted the top of a mini fridge and built a collar that way? Just looking for some good ideas or I might trade it for something else.

I'm new to brewing so I have no refrigeration gear yet.

You can build a fermentation chamber and use the fridge as the cooling source. Might work out well.

Kinda like this:

Like steelers said, connect it to an insulated box and use it as a cooling source.

Here is my build:

Do a search for "cold box" to get a few other ideas.
