Default How many refrigerators/freezers do you have?

Less than a year ago we had 2 refrigerators, one upstairs and one in the basement. The basement fridge had some food kept in the freezer, but saw little other use. Since beginning brewing last January, we now have:

The same 2 refrigerators except the basement one is now used for cold crashing, bottled beer storage, yeast storage, and mugs - no food now

A deep freeze that I bought to use as a keezer which ended up being to small for 6 cornies so we just kept it and use it for food now

A chest freezer for fermenting

A chest freezer for serving beer (the keezer).

So a total of 5. The really crazy part, it's not enough. I'm now making room in the garage to build 2 cold rooms (planning on ~6'x3'x7' per room at this time). One for fermenting & one for storage/conditioning.

So how much cooling space has been added to your home due to brewing?

Fridge in the kitchen. Freezer for food in basement. Fridge in 'man-room' for beer/hops/cold crashing etc. Fridge in basement used for fermentation chamber. 7.2 cu. ft. freezer converted to keezer. And a kenmore keggerator. No wonder my damn electric bill is so high....

Seven total. Three freezers and four refrigerators. These include the one fridge and one freezer I use for food only, so it's five for brewing purposes

Two fridges and a chest freezer. My freezer has to do double duty for my other hobby, beekeeping. It now holds two medium bee boxes (honey supers) with drawn comb, waiting for the spring nectar flow.
