Try the trading post. I got my fridge for $30 as it was so heavy the owner basically just wanted it moved. And after 3 flights of stairs, i almost gave it back.

Hey Scotty, if the old one still has good seals dont throw it out , I use one to brew ales in summer in, put fermentor in and freeze up a couple of 1.25lt pet bottles with water then rotate the frozen bottles every 12 hours, 18deg constent temp. :rolleyes:

Well done Scotty! I too scored big on the weekend. I had a few mates over to help empty some kegs and one of them turned up with a free fridge for me! I was stoked, as my current fridge is too small for my 3 kegs and I can't cold condition without taking the kegs out. Well, the new one is big enough to take 4 kegs and 2 Jerry cans for cold conditioning, with heaps of door shelves for yeast, hops, bottles etc. So there I am with a big smile on my face and a tape measure in my hand trying to work out how it will fit behid the bar so i can finally mount my new 3 tap font, and my wife walks in and says "it's too rusty to put in the entertainment area - and besides we don't need a new fridge...we already have 3!!" So then a good sized row ensues with me trying to convince her that fridges can be painted and you can never have too many fridges (or too much beer for that matter....) and that I want a 4th keg for my birthday so I can fill my new fridge with more beer ;)

Anyway, I interperet stony silence as consent B)

Cheers - Snow.

I get enough spiteful glances as it is when the power bill comes in. And we only have 2 fridges.

It was worse in winter when I was trying to do ales by keeping a heater going in the brewroom 24/7. $150 extra for the quarters power bill, and I now do a lager in winter.

Your next beerfridge is likely standing on the pavement in an are where there is a hard rubbish collection. Sorta illegal, of course. . .
