    My beer fridge broke. I'm debating if I should fix it (don't know how or how much) or if I should just store beer in it. If the later, any suggestions to make it ideal for beer storage? Or is it good as it is..

    Fair. I guess... what I'm asking. I have a broken fridge...and just wondering if I should fix or convert to beer cellar (50-60) degrees. I don't know how they compare cost wise. Cheapest option wins..

    The cheapest option seems like it would be a broken fridge that doesn't operate on electricity any longer, and is already paid for.

    Or I'm confused.

    hahaha i guess it was a pie in the sky idea. I saw a video about turning coolers into fridges. Thought there might be a simple hack or product for broken fridges.


    No worries guys. Thanks for the help!

    if you keep it closed so the cool air stays in, only open it once, get all the beer in real quick and close the door, you should be totally fine. best of luck!

    OP, these guys are a bunch of dicks and don't even understand what you are asking. What you want to do is put all of your beer in the broken beer fridge then put that whole broken fridge into a different fridge that still works. I did this at my house with pretty good results, except all of the produce keeps going bad because there is no room for it in the fridge anymore.
