Thanks for the info sir. I figured drinks in the door werent the best but I went with it. I cut them up to try out different days aged, one will be 30 and the second 45. Once I decide which I like the best I'll do a whole prime slab. The opening was mostly to monitor and check the temp, as I only had one way to do that. If this is successful I'll buy the rest of the kit hygrometer and perhaps an outside temperature controller and external thermometer.
This is an initial trial so I am just experimenting here, thanks for the feedback I will apply this info.
