    Actually to be honest I forgot about that, thanks for pointing out. It's been 2 years since I build mine and I don't remember details. I probably got SNR version because I just used 110v AC to power it and I don't use any other power supplies. I am going to rebuild mine or build another one and add fuse based on your guys comments. I picked up this perfect sturdy metal box and I plan to put Lee pot on top it for more compact setup.

    Yup! Fermentation chambers and keezers(keg freezer) where temp control is needed. I ferment around 65 degrees for example, in summer that requires refrigeration. and chest freezers with a "collar" added on top then the lid attached to the collar is very popular for a kegerator.

    Most common



    Fancy but there is a chest freezer under all that wood

    Pretty rig! All I have are disk heaters to fit under a carboy & germination mats to wrap around them.

    I have a 2 door commercial fridge that is missing the compressor that I am turning into my fermentation chamber. Will hold 6-8 5 gallon buckets. Going to graft a portable AC unit on the side for cooling and add a small 500 watt heater for cold months. Fridge was new, arrived with the compressor torn half out from a moron with a forklift stabbing it.
