So I am starting to brainstorm for my fermentation chamber. I have already bought and gutted a small Excellence mini Fridge.
I am looking for some help on this as it is my first go round and I am sure you experienced DIY'ers could tell me something I dont know that I don't know.
The plan is to immulate this Kelvinator box fridge. The bottom part will have a drawer that can hold two cases of bottled homebrew, the top portion will be shorter than that (around 34" tall x 35" wide) This should be large enough to hold two 6.5 gallon glass Carboys.
I want to have a two chamber temperature control (I think) using two ebay sc-1000 aquarium temperature controllers. One controller in the bottom chamber controlling the condensor, the second controlling the temp of the fermentation chamber by operating fans connected to the lower unit and pulling air up from the bottom.
Here is my very simple design:
I know pulling air from the bottom is not the best idea, but I am concerned the condesor I have is not long enough to reach the top as its very short., And I am not sure I want to mount it on the upper side of the unit.
The whole thing will be insulated with 2" foam board.
Please let me know if you think this is just a flat out terrible idea, or if you have any ideas you think would work better.
Thanks in advance!
