Thanks for all your information everybody, I think I may just get a chest freezer and use that as a fermentation chamber until I decide to make it a keezer, because I am definitely going the kegging route ASAP! I did find a Sanyo 4912? on craigslist here for $100, but can't invest in that if I'm gonna buy a chest freezer (which just seems to be a more logical option especially for any lagering). This forum is F***ing awesome...I Love it!!! So much info, yet so little time , Anyhow, I guess I just need to pick a freezer and wire her up, earlier I found some wiring diagrams but did not bookmark can anyone send me a link? Any thoughts on what to do if placing a chest freezer in a room with carpet??? Maybe a drip pan or something to protect the carpet? I dunno just thinking ahead, thanks again everone!
