Wanting turn the freezer side into the kegerator and the fridge side to just hold beer.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome and wanted!

I've never done it, but I too have a side by side in my garage. Right now I keep the beer in the freezer side. The problem I see is how to control the temps in each side individually. I think both the fridge and freezer use a single compressor. I'm acutally just getting ready to go out and drill an exploratory hole in the fridge.

Draft 1: Lightly smoked Weizen
Draft 2: Belgian Wit
Draft 3: Rauchbier

Primary 1: German Scwarzbier
Primary 2:

On Deck: Belgian Brown Ale, Pale Ale, Stout
