After a bit of a delay This evening I’ll be picking up my New-Old Fridge.
It’ll have to be transported on it’s side in the back of my Estate car so after getting to the Brew Shed will have to be left to settle for a day or two as I don’t want the compressor oil up it’s cooling tubes…
Over those settling days I’ll start to convert it to a second BrewPi Fermentation Setup and then put it into use as a conditioning fridge!
Hopefully I’ll remember to take piccies of the conversion along the way !
******update 8th Jun*****
After picking up and defrosting the freezer with a hose and letting it settle overnight It’s now being used as a conditioning fridge with the STC1000 the @BrewPi is a bit too much overKill Plus I’ve not currently got the coding Skills to get my dev system up and running …

The fridge part nicely takes a couple of corny kegs and there’s a convenient entry point for the CO2 and NTC thermister at the back
