Default My fermentation chamber build

So i started building my fermentation chamber today.


It will hold 3 fermenters on there own slide out drawers and have 2 temp controllers in it. There will be a mini fridge on the platform on the left side and the first section will be insulated off from the other 2 sections. The first section will just be a cold chamber for laggering the other section will be cooled by a one way vent with a fan that is connected to the cooling on the second temp controller.

Holy crap!

Slide out drawers!

That's one of those ideas that noone thinks of until it's done and then you come along and HOLY CRAP, that's awesome!

I'm in the middle of a build that may be able to use slides as well.

The doors are going to be hindged plywood with foam insulation glued on the back to slide snug in the openings. Probably going to have to use 3/4 insulation though i dont think the 1.5 inch will allow the doors to open.
