I cant seem to find the deal you're referring to...where did you see that?

If you open up the page for the 300 model, a little ways down there is a button to purchase both the 300 and 500 together at a discount.

I'm having moisture issues...

Let me back up... I popped open my keezer the other day and found puddles from condensation all over the place. Mold had started to sprout in little colonies on the tops of the cornies and I noticed it in all the cracks of the keezer as well. Sweet... Just when I wanted to show off my selection to a bunch of work buddies. That'll have to wait.

Anyway, I just finished cleaning that thing, and would rather never repeat the experience. Typed "keezer moisture" in the search and found this thread. Long story short, Just bought two of the EVA-Dry 500's for 35 shipped. I'll let you all know how well they work in a few weeks.

Thanks for the suggestion!

bump.

Soo... how'd they work out? I'm just putting my keezer together now (got a chest freezer for $40 off of craig's list!! Gonna order the temp control for $52 from northernbrewer, make a collar with some wood I already have and bam! Keezer for <$100)

I'd rather just avoid the whole moisture/mold problem instead of going through what you did... what's the report on the Eva-Dry's?

I have had my Eva-Dry units in for a while now. With a 300 and 500, there is absolutely no moisture issue! It takes about 2 weeks for the units to be "full" and then I just plug them into the wall for a few hours and put them back. These things are a miracle!

Bumping an old thread, but 4 years later are those Eva-Dry units still working?

Mine is - but it really only became useful at all when I did this to it.

With that hack it pulls a good 5 ounces of moisture out between dryings - which can be as frequent as 9-10 days during the humid season here...

Cheers!

That's a clever addition. Thank you.
