So, in shopping for a beverage / wine fridge to be used as a cellar, I've been faced with capacity limitations to contend with (who doesn't contend with those, though...). This made me realize the important formula for what my rate of consumption from the cooler would have to be: Rate of Consumption = Quantity of Beers / Average Age of Beer Some beers I'm looking to cellar for 5 years, others only 6 months. But if I average them all out, I'd guess 18 months would be the average. The cellar I'm looking at holds about 40 beers (mostly bombers). Therefore RoC = 40 / 18mo = 2.2 beers per month, or about 1 every 2 weeks. Who else is nerdy enough to calculate such things? And what do your numbers look like?
