Moisture is potentially more of an issue if you ferment in the freezer and you airlock fails, etc.

In some humid areas, the condesation can be quite substantial, however.

I have two and a nice Sony digital camera, but where can I plant pics-who is the best at hosting pics?

I also get to keep one in the living room-but it frees up a lot of fridge space and I have 3 of those.

Thanks! With the thin layer of closed-cell foam that came in the draft tower I bought, I am able to get the tower line to within about 10 degrees of the main compartment temp with 6VDC powering the fan. 12VDC brings the temp down even closer to the fridge temp, but because my tower isn't well enough insulated, it gets very cold to the touch, which means i'm wasting quite a bit of energy. I keep the fan running full time when I have something on draft (as opposed to wiring it into the thermostat switch).

I try to do that. But with those 2x8's mounted and me at 5'9", when I bend over to swab the bottom I come pretty close to tipping myself upside down in my own kegerator.

Oh...but what a way to go...

Okay, okay...I know.

The faucets are on their way. I'm just prepping.

Even so, this is a lot nicer than openning the freezer everytime for a "sample:.

Bobby, you were right. Hardly any condensation now.

Ok, here are a couple pics.
First my old kegerator. Found this one listed in one of those throwaway classified papers. Originally had only one faucet. I had added a manifold and 2 more faucets, then upgraded to a 3 secondary guage manifold.

Then, I got the one below. I removed all the hardware from the old kegerator and scrapped the fridge. I still have everything but the manifold (sold it on ebay). This one, I hate to tell you, was free. I work for a refrigeration and commercial A/C company, and my boss took this as payment from one of his customers who was behind. Sat in the shop for a couple years. He asked if I wanted it......Hell Yeah!!!

Thanks. The second image was a bit on the large size. Made the forum a bit screwy. I resized it to help.
