wine fridge

Postby tookalisten » Thu Dec 20, 2012 7:03 pm

Anyone own a dedicated wine fridge? Recommendations? Are the one's from Home Depot/Lowes that run approx $300 as good as any? Lot of varying opinions on their websites; so came here to ask the people I trust - my drunken interweb friends.

I can't attest to the wine fridge but I've had a lowes cheapo, faux stainless mini-fridge installed in my outdoor bar for the last 8 years and it's still running like a champ.

What is the intended use for, fermenting with carboy or just chilling bottles ?

Some of those wine fridge's have a hump that does not allow a carboy to fit.
ON TAP:
1. 1C
2. 4B
3.
4.
5.
6.
Bottled: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, 16B, 18B, 18E, 19B, 20, 21A, 23, 27
Fermenting:
Next: 5C

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.

Oh, I plan to use it for wine. Need some storage capacity.
