Keep watching craigslist, I got this very freezer for 50$ and ~15$ in gas several months ago in mint condition.

Assuming the stopper was sanitized (probably even if it isn't) there's no ill effect. I did the same thing on my first Apfelwein.

To remove just use a plastic bag, worked great....

I keep mine at 39, I get mold from over pouring while intoxicated. :(

Only way you'll stop icing is to raise the temp.

People commonly store brews 1-2 years, longer happens frequently too but mainly only on high 10%+ ABV.

Another vote for dried out mold. I'm guessing the can was laying on it's side during storage (aka in a bag)? That'd explain why it's so long and thin instead of a round silver dollar patch.
