well, it works in my neighborhood, I have quite a few light-fingered neighbors it seems. When you leave things outside, whether it is intentionally to be discarded or not, people will rummage through them. Heck, I've lost shoes left outside before. I guess the broken fridge has some scrap value, the junkyard man must have taken it. I know the cleaners will definitely not go through that trouble.

The Beer Beast (tm) is in! Hooked up the gas line through the drainage pipe, so that I don't have to drill holes and looks much more neat. Some pics below.

Image
Unscrewed the front panel to reveal the drainage pipe. Just need to make a small cut and insert the gas lines.

Image
view from the back, 2 gas lines coming out from the drainage pipe. Have to be careful with the positioning, else you'll end up with a very wet floor.

Image
this is the completed view. Gas lines coming out from the top right corner of the panel.

sure, just don't tell the boss beforehand, and you have to ask for a lot of forgiveness after that. :lol: :lol: :lol:

no temp control, just using the fridge's internal controls. The freezer is at freezing temp, for storing hops and making ice for wort chilling.

Thanks for a look Keat
Looks bloody great. U buying New ??
No temp control did I read that LOL.
I slipped one of Ross's fridgemates on the circuit on my server just allows the up and down when required.
So not hard wired and gets moved around at will.
Looks really cool Buddy..
