Fridge. The freezer will kill it without the addition of glycerin.

How about one of the crisper drawers? It's insulated from the freezer.

Seems like you could keep them in something, though. Like an insulated lunch bag or something?

I think the one left in my garage by the previous owner is older...it's a Kelvinator! It also has a tap on the side.

It uses a ton of electricity.

That won't achieve much. The temperature inside the bag will stabilise at the same as outside. Insulation doesn't generate heat, it simply reduces the rate of transfer.

Your slants will be fine at anything above freezing. The cold of the fridge reduces the activity of the yeast cells and causes them to go dormant.
