Flanbos, the best thing you can do is replace your fridge's thermostat with a 0-40C thermostat or temp controller. This will let you run the fridge at whatever temperature you want. Then, you can brew whatever you want in it at any time of the year. Do a search on this site for thermostats and tem controllers for discussions around models, cost, location, installation, etc.

I agree with Snow here wholeheartedly. The only problem is is you bottle and its summer your brews temperature tend to fluctuate with the weather unless you have a really good spot where the temp doesn't change much to store them in.
Of course you can keg and get a bigger fridge to hold all the kegs.

Aahhhh brewing.....

I'll third the new thermostat idea. It's surprisingly easy to do.
