Refrigeration Update

Two pieces of good news, one bad. 

The lager fermentation fridge that stopped working a month ago or more is now working again!  We had a commerical fridge repair company come in and work on it, its holding at 50F, feel free to use it.  There was a leak, we sealed it and recharged it.  It is possible that the leak is still happening, at a slow level, but the repair person thought this should hold us.  If not, he'll come back and do the next level of repair.  

Feel free to put your lagers in there!

 

Second piece of good news - we purchased a used, inexpensive home fridge for food stuffs, bottles, hops, yeast, and ice.  Its up front, by the garage door.  Feel free to use it!

Now the bad news - the lagering fridge stopped working sometime today.  We'll have the repair-person back this week to diagnose the problem.

Jim, that post was like a

Jim, that post was like a roller coaster of emotions for me! Thanks for staying on top of this. Hopefully the fridge guy can diagnose the problem further. I have full faith in him and the Chicago flag patch on his work shirt.

Thanks for taking care of

Thanks for taking care of this, Jim. Brandon, I know how you feel. There's a Simpsons episode with fro-yo and toppings that it was very reminiscent of.

We'll have a repair person

We'll have a repair person out for the lagering/cold-crashing fridge on Wednesday.   It would be great if people would move their beers out of there before then.  Also, there is a lot of stuff on top of the fridge, if someone has a moment today or tomorrow to move that stuff, that would be great, also.

Jim, 

Jim, 

Do you know if the fridge repair guys were able to look at the big boy yesterday?  I was trying to plan if I could put a beer into secondary and crash today.  If not I can hold off for a few days.
