    I have an old beer fridge in our garage I can put my wort in to ferment but have a question. I don't want to appear thick but do I turn the fridge off? As I'm not sure it can go as high as 18° needed to ferment the beer.

    Yeah mate I do if the day time temp is not too hot where you are at the moment you would be surprised how stable the fridge will be at around the 18-19 degrees. I have mine plugged into a box that is controlled by an STC 1000 which has a heat and a cool function so if it's starts to get too hot the fridge turns on for a bit and likewis if too cool there is a heat belt in there that comes on.

    regards,
    Norto.
