Is it possible to get a pic on where you're connecting the wires? I think this the fermentation chamber build I want to go with.

I finally got mine complete. 3 months only getting to work on it maybe 3 hours a week. This is actually a freezer only that is why I used two fans. Sorry for the cell phone pics but that is all I had available.

This looks awesome! How cold does this get? I'm thinking of building something similar but I'd also like to use it as a kegerator too, but I'm concerned about a little 4.6 cu. ft. fridge getting cold enough?

I have not tested to see how cold it gets. As stated, this is not a fridge, it is all freezer. I have never seen one before, but they closed my wifes clinic and they just wanted to get rid of it. They used it to store ice packs. Since it is a freezer, I think it should have no problem getting low enough to use as a kegarator.
