I think you will need more than 9k BTUs for that much beer. Most fridges are around R-30~40 and most freezers are around R-50. I shot for R-50 knowing there would be plenty of "weak" spots for the cold to escape.

Why not a large window AC unit?

I read your post right after you posted it, but didn't respond because you didn't ask any questions...

I am going to age for 6 months at a time and the quasin hut gets hot and cold. I would do one heater and a/c unit but I worry about the fall and spring weather. I want to put the temp at 68-70 and walk away and know its going to be that temp no matter what minus any power outages.

OK- then I imagine there will be no issue with maintaining 68~70 degrees and the smaller A/C unit...
