Default Compact Fridge on Clearance

At Target in Atlanta and they have a ton Emersom 2.8 CF refrigerators on clearance for $45.

Just thought I'd share. Great for building a fermentation chamber. You can probably find these at many stores.

Would a fermentor fit in that thing? I've seem similar fridges and didn't think that my fermentors would fit it them.

To fit a bigger fermentor take the door off the frig and build and insulated box bigger then your fermentor.

Will that fit 2 cornies? I think it could make a nice little lagering fridge...

2.8 is kind of small, look for atleast 4 cuft.

You're better off with something like this:

At my computer now - this is the fridge

It won't hold anything by itself (except bottled beer). You'd have to take the door off and extend it. It's on the small side, but for $45 if you're looking to do a small 2 carboy/bucket chamber, it should work.
