I have a dorm room fridge that is...
« on: March 07, 2009, 12:28:42 AM »
...too small for a carboy or plastic fermenter.  The fridge is in my office right now but I am going to be leaving my current place of employment this summer for a different one.  I never use the fridge in my office so I figure I can either take it with me to my next place, leave it for the next person taking over my office, or see if there is a way I can use it for brewing even though it won't hold any of my fermentation vessels? 

Any suggestions?

my thoughts are:

Cold aging lager bottles.  Storing a yeast bank.  Maybe short term hop storage.  Or beer fridge out in the garage.

Beware-those little fridges consume a lot of power.

If you do yeast starters, might be great for chilling the starter to floc the yeast, so you can decant the spent wort.  I bought a small wine fridge for that purpose - works great.
