Thoughts and Suggestions for my Curing Chamber

Postby mykafone » Wed Oct 31, 2012 4:32 pm

First of all I know a fridge is not the best option, but its what I have.


Most of the stuff seperating the freezer from the fridge has been removed including the fan. All cooling is done by the exposed freezer coil.

I have digitaly controlled temp and RH. I have a fan mounted in the top portion of the freezer. It is connected to a 12v output power supply and a 25ohm rheostat.

So far tests show it keeps temps within 3° and the RH usually spikes about 10° and then starts dropping slowly.

I am wondering about ventalation. Should I cut a hole in the freezer door behind the fan?

Real shelves are going to be installed this weekend.

All suggestions are welcomed.

This is a wide view of the fridge.
