I think the thermoelectric unit died, and it will cost a minimum of $30 to get it fixed. It only cost $30 so I'm not too thrilled about paying more to get it repaired.
So I am using Prion's dorm refrigerator. It took me a day to get the temperature stable at 50˚F, and I wasn't sure it would go that high. But it's been stable for about 8 hours now, so I think it will be okay.
|Missing the bottom drawer, one of these days I'll find a plastic basket that will fit down there. I'm sure Prion can use it for fruits and vegies.|
|That's a thermometer in a jar of water. I can check the temperature of the water and know the temperature of the fridge before the door was opened.|
|The lone Gouda wrapped in a bandage so the crack heals. On the left is a plastic container with water and a sponge to keep the humidity higher in the fridge. I'm sure I'll have to defrost it more often, but that's okay, the Gouda likes the moisture.|
I think I'll be making a bunch more cheese this summer now that I have a bigger, better place to let it age!
And maybe I'll have to buy Prion a new fridge.
