New (old) refridgerator... Now what?

Postby MFoster75 » Sun Mar 21, 2010 9:05 pm

Hey all... I picked up a 20 year old (still in working order) Whirlpool fridge on Saturday, given to me by a friend who didn't want to pay Sear's the $10 take away fee... After a scouring, it's ready to go, and I had intended to use it for fermentation (lagers, alts, kolsch, etc)... So, the big question is "Now what?"

Do I need to replace the thermostat to achieve decent temp control? If so, what unit, from where, should I buy? Will my wife still be able to use the freezer? Will the tempered glass shelf hold up the 6 gallon glass carboy filled with fermenting goodness? Who IS that masked man??

Oh, and anything else you guys think would be helpful...

Thanks a bunch!!

there is a good video by bobby m that is a member you can search on the member list . he has quite a few very informative videos one of which is a video on a conversion of a chest freezer to a kegerator its a very smart idea anyway check them out... and no your six gallon carboy would bust that shelf like a sumo on a grasshopper
oatmeal chocolate sweet stout sounds good

Buy a digital thermometer

One that measures minimum and maximum temperatures. Place the sensor in the frig and see where you stand. I am guessing that you will want to sent the refrigerator on the warm side with the goal for lagers around 48-50 degrees. You might find that the old refrigerator's control unit cannot maintain a constant temp and you might have to purchase a temp control unit that will tell your refrigerator when to turn on. I use my hand me down for my kegerator.
I use a chest freezer for my lagers with a Remco control unit... great set up. I just wish I could do two carboys at a time...
