    Just a start- about 8 months worth. Can't wait to try some of these in a year or so!

    I would feel bad if I had such a big fridge like this with all beer. My fiance too often is like I have friends over and what can we drink and I'm all like "......nothingggg". I do try to have an assortment of easy to find stuff but sometimes it's just my special cellared goodies and it makes me feel like a jerk.

    Any particular reason you are cellaring the Rogue Voodoos?

    Afraid to drink them?
    Too expensive to just throw it out?
    Bought two too many?

    Doesn't look like much but it's the coldest part of my house. Stays in the mid 50s during winter and right around 60 during summer.

    I have the same fridge, but had to reinforce the shelves because all the bombers made them bend a bit. You use a temperature controller?

    I noticed one of my shelves bowing a bit too. What did you reinforce your shelves with?

    I do use a temperature controller, with the probe ran into a bottle of water with a hole drilled through the cap and set to 53 degrees.

    I think this setup is pretty kickass. It's both my cellar and my beer fridge. The only thing I don't keep in here are growlers when I have them.

    I have the same thing - a Johnson controller with a probe in a water bottle. An awesome setup except I wish the light still worked when I open the door...

    I used a few different things - some leftover laminated wood shelves, a piece of plastic, etc. Whatever I had lying around the garage. I would think that a thin, strong sheet of wood or plastic would do fine. You just have to watch out for reinforcing with something too thick or else bottles won't fit.

    I'm a huge fan of the setup too - tons of capacity, relatively quiet, low-power with the controller, no moisture problems.

    and no I am not cellaring all these beers just so happens my sump pump/cellar is in a blocked basement area with no windows and stays a cool 45 degrees year round thus dont have to worry about pissing off the wife by taking over the fridge with beer. I just keep it all in here and pull and drink daily.

    You appear to spend similar amounts on FFF as me. Nice to know I'm not the only one.

    Agreed, it does look scary. But if you put out a "beer-crumb" trail to the basement you could probably catch a lot of fellow BAs.

    No basement and warm weather not good as you know. If I didnt have the cellar space that I do, I'd find an old refrigerator and arrange the shelving and temp settings accordingly.

    Nice. But you might want to not sit too long that Olympic interior semi-gloss. It falls off pretty fast.

    True but thought I would risk it as it is a nice bolster for the top shelf, but I do agree it is way past its prime and is likely a drain pour.

    Yeah the Voodoo is supposed to get better after a year or two. The smoke dies off and it gets sweeter. That is what I've heard.

    Easily one of the coolest cellar I have seen. Did you convert and old closet into that?

    Close. It's a 4th room originally built to be either a bedroom or a den. It has been a den for the entire 25 years since the house was built. I converted it into my beer/wine cellar & tasting room last August. The portion of the room that would've originally been a closet was framed in, insulated, wired, Breezaire cellar cooling unit, LED lighting, cedar lined, etc... all new construction. I actually have an album of photos showing construction from start to finish if interested. Thanks for the note.
