GE 7cu.ft. chest freezer - $168 @ HomeDepot!
 
Home Depot has the GE 7 cu ft chest freezer for only $178. Add a $10 coupon (code HDJUNE10) and it's down to $168 bucks! Free delivery too!

For all of you looking for a conversion project -- here it is. My understanding from a buddy who says he has the same one, is that it holds 4 5-gal kegs AND a 10lb tank.

Just an FYI for you guys!

That's what I have for my kegerator/fermentation freezer. It comfortably holds 3 kegs with a 5 lb CO2 tank, after I build the collar. You could probably squeeze in a fourth keg and go with a 10 lb tank though. I'll be getting a 2nd one this summer to be my dedicated fermentation freezer to keep my kegerator at full capacity.

Sold! If I had more $$ this month I would have bought 2!

Think this one will be by ferm chamber.. Anyone know if it needs mods to fit 5gallon carboys?

Mine did not. It fits two 6.5 gallon better bottles comfortably. If you put a collar on it you could probably stack buckets.

Yeah, I plan to convert it to a kegerator, but also use as a ferm. chamber. I don't brew often enough to warrant separating the 2.

Thanks for posting this! I just ordered mine. I almost ordered this same one last week but decided it just wasnt in the budget but now that it's on sale it didn't make sense not to buy it. Looking forward to having some real fermentation control now! Right in time too considering its 96F here in jersey

Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered mine. Perfect timing I'm brewing 10 gallons of O-Fest in a week and a half. Now I don't need the 6 frozen gallon Jugs in my kitchen freezer!
