I have a regular fridge that I use to store beer, and I’ve got a chest freezer for my kegs. I want to put a temp control on the fridge to use as a fermentation chamber, but I’ve got a couple of cases of bottled beer in there that won’t fit into the chest freezer.
So, if I leave the bottled beer in the fridge with the fermenting beer and let the temp get up to 64-68 degrees during fermentation, will the bottled beer be negatively affected? I’m thinking I’ll ferment for a week in the fridge, then dry-hop or condition in my basement. So I’ll be running the fridge at regular temps after a week or so of fermentation.
