I have a fridge from the old house when we moved (bottle and hops storage), a 7.2 cu ft chest freezer kegerator, and a 5 cu ft fermentation chest freezer. I'm thinking I need another 8-9 cu ft chest freezer for fermenting ( so I can do more than one at a time ) and use the 5 cu ft freezer as a lagering chamber.

haha 4 currently. One kitchen fridge, one kegerator fridge, one garage fridge that's mostly empty and one fermentation fridge I just built.

This is a common conversation with my wife as well

Since I live alone I can get away with pretty much anything I want to do in the house, so let's see I've got 6 total.

So there's a 18 cuft and 25cuft fridge/freezers side by side in the kitchen, one almond and one black, there's a small apartment fridge in the living room, in the master bedroom there's a 7cuft freezer on a STC-1000 for my sake brewing, and next to that is a 15cuft upright freezer on a STC-1000 for use as a large refrigerator, and in the laundry room is a 3cuft freezer for my meat supply.

1 freezer and 1 fridge in the garage, 1 fridge in the kitchen, 1 freezer in the fermentation room, 1 freezer (converted for serving kegs) in the basement, and 1 fridge in the basement kitchen. So 6. That's normal right?

Ok, but........here's the thing. I have two houses. One is at the lake, and one is at home. Both need a kegerator, of course, and both need a fridge of course. And then the house we rent in Texas in the winter has two, and again- one is for food and one is the kegerator.

And I hunt, so we need a couple of freezers for venison. Oh and we garden, and freeze our fruits from our plants (as well as our veggies), so we need a couple of big freezers.

Now, in my house I only have one upright freezer, one chest freezer, one regular fridge, one fridge converted to a kegerator, and one small dorm fridge "just in case".

But if you add them all together.............well, maybe that is a little excessive.

Home: 2 full size fridges, one chest freezer, one upright freezer, one dorm fridge. That's only 4.5, really.

House - fridge
basement - chest freezer
Garage - fridge and keezer
Detached Garage - fermentation chamber (freezer)

By my higher math skills, 5.

4. Kitchen fridge. Single tap kegerator, Fermentation mini-fridge. And really mini fridge I need to sell or trade for larger one. I really need a second fermentation fridge instead when I'm making 2 lagers in succession. Right now I am "lagering" a keg on the garage floor. Not ideal.
