peltier based keezer
« on: November 30, 2016, 02:53:18 PM »
Hello, wanted to know if anyone has seen a peltier based keezer.... my idea is to make a custom box to fit 1 or 2 "5 gallons" KEGs with the gas tank, with isolation and everything.
 I've seen some peltier options with batery for 2 cans o a little bigger, but I was wandering if its enough (using 2 to 4) conected to AC (with an adapter to 12v) or is it just too inefficient and thats why you don't see any in youtube or google.... ?

Thanks!

Here is a nice project although maybe a little complicated for me to get the parts (in Argentina).... but similar to what I was thinking

This is an interesting project.  Are you thinking about pairing it with an air conditioner to get colder ambient and so colder output from the Peltier unit?  I built a fermentation chamber using a window air conditioner and was disappointed with the results as I could only get the temperature down to about 15 degrees C.
