15) Almost done onto the heat lamp. I took the lid of the paint can and cut out a hole. Then screw the lightbulb through the lid into the weatherproof socket. I used extra 300 V wire to wire the light bulb. Run the wire through the back of the fridge and then attach the white 15 A plug.

16) Then attach the bulb to the hot side of the outlet and the fridge to the cold side.

17) Sit back and enjoy your clean looking fermentation chamber/ Kegerator

I figured out this build's wiring from reading through the forum. I didnt want to get too much into the nitty gritty. Feel free to message me if you have any questions. This is my first write up so sorry if it is rough.

Hopefully this helps someone or at least gives them an idea on their DIY project.

Cheers!

Thanks for sharing this build. I really like the clean look. Was curious how you figured out exactly where to drill your holes through the back of the fridge? I like the idea, but wouldn't want to drill through anything important.

From what I saw the back wall is where the refrigerant is run. So I drilled straight down over the hump in the back. Just make sure you find a spot where you don't drill into the compressor. The back left worked for me.

Clean, but the loss of height in the fermentor seems like a bad idea. If I were to put the controller inside, I'd probably shift it to one side of the existing hump or the other since I use 6 gallon carboys most of the time. Just my opinion. But it is a very clean look.

Awesome build and write up. I'm about to start this tonight. How big of hole did you need to drill into it to run the wires and did you use anything to seal up around the hole once you ran the wires through?

I use two of these and wish it was at least an inch taller once I move to a carboy. I would not be willing to give up any height. I use reptile heaters to add heat,.
