I don't even count the fridge in the kitchen...that's just a given. I store hops in the chest freezer in the garage, so I guess that counts. I have a kegerator, and a small in-the-bar fridge that stores various brewing related stuff and beer. I really do need a fermentation chamber...that will be my next! (trying to decide between an upright vs a dorm style vs a chest freezer...)

3 fridges, each with a freezer. 1 is ferm chamber, 1 is keg fridge/brewing freezer (for ice to cool samples, etc.), the other is the kitchen fridge.

SONOFA!!! I just got rid of one! If I had known... I would have kept it and totally won the interwebs!

Kitchen fridge
Two temp controlled fermentation fridges (one full sized, one 'kegerator' sized)
A mini behind the bah
Four by six DIY walk-in coolah for all of the kegs/keg lines that run to the bah and my "cold bottle storage"

Meh... that's not that many I guess... I guess I wouldn't have won the interwebs.

*^&@$!!! I'm buying more TONIGHT!! (just kidding. I probably wont)

Regular full size fridge-freezer combo in the kitchen for food, some grain, yeast, hops, starter wort and all the bottled beer we keep cold (about five six packs worth).

Small fridge in fermentation room for fermentation chamber.

I wish we had a small chest freezer for food. I'd keep a lot of bulk food cooked.

5 fridges and 3 freezers in two houses. Three are involved in brewing; two keggors, and a fermentation fridge that is off over 95% of the time. We have stand-alone freezers in the house and the cabin, both packed with food and a huge quantity of blackberries and cherries. Kitchen fridges in both places, but they are relatively small. The last fridge is downstairs in the wetbar and is used mostly when we entertain. I don't count my wife's son's fridge. It's just being stored. With the exception of the fermentation fridge, they are all Energy Star rated.

Incidentally, my ferm chamber fridge is the oldest of the bunch, probably a 70's model...I brewed two lagers recently that were in primary and/or cold crashing for the better part of September...my electric bill was pretty high considering we didn't run the AC the entire month.

I was trying to figure it out then I realized that I lagered/fermented in the 50's for an entire month in an inefficient fridge.
