Flavour Fridge - Concentrate Storage


#1

Some of you will have seen V1 and V2 flavour fridges already, unfortunately, V2 took a massive crap and stopped working so it was time to build V3.

No freebie fridge this time taking the risk of building in a second-hand fridge was not something I wanted to do so I went and bought a new dual zone wine fridge (better suited as it was actually square inside).

Anyhoo here are the pics of the finished product took me far longer than the other two but I am pretty happy with the result.

Apart from the risk it is also very costly as I found out to my detriment. Second hand fridges and freezers tend to use a shit load of electricity. I bought one cheep and found out it was using as much energy as all my electrical appliances combined :roll_eyes:
Bought a new, energy saving one and it has already payed itself back.

That’s amazing work my friend!
Well done sir!

I’m curious as to what temp you selected to use as the “optimum” for longevity of flavors?

Are there any flavors you intentionally don’t store in there (for whatever reason)?

i have it set at 10c atm (another advantage of a wine fridge temps can be set higher than a normal fridge). Only things I don’t have in there is Nic (freezer) malic, citric, tartaric acids and pyure clone only because i have seen some of the acids re crystalize before. Malted Milk TPA also forms crystals at around 5c .

Wow the utopia of flavoring storage!
