Beer chest freezer!!!!!

Post by Bulldog on Thu Jul 12, 2012 1:22 pm

Righto ! listen up those in the know. As you know I've been getting into the brew (in more ways than one). The trouble is my wife"s an alcoholic and I've had the devils own job to keep her away from it. So after doing a little research I've learnt that if you get yourself a chest freezer, you can then purchase a thermostate controller which will effectively change it to a fridge. So it would it not only keep it nice and cold, but with a suitable harsp and padlock installed would also keep the Mrs out. Has anyone ever done this???

No not with a freezer I haven't. I have an external thermostat on my fridge for brewing so it turns the power to the fridge on and off depending
on what temp I set it at. For example I have it set at the moment at 17 degrees. When the temp goes above that it gives power to the fridge, when it gets to 17 turns the power off. Can't see why the same thing would not work on a freezer.

My local home brew shop sells them.

It has a little temperature sensor that you put in the fridge. I stick it to my fermenting barrel. It is attached to the thermostat unit by a wire that you can close the door on and the seal molds around it.

Yer don't understand Alexisio, its not about the price. It's the satisfaction of making your own and drinking a better product than the commercial beers. And what else have I got to do. Wink

Hey DBT, that fridge idea works like a charm. it stays at 18 degrees without being turned on.

It is definitely the way to go. Better beer and more consistent results.

I didn't notice the message, sorry. I have replied to it now.

Whilst I do appreciate the offer and all, no, I don't have need of a
photo of you, Alexsisio and Apocalypso nude in the spa together.
You are free to keep it. Very kind of you to offer though elephant
