Pretty sure, but I will be happy to check when I get home. I have some work to do on the collar today anyways

Damn i didnt know there was a thread on this freezer. I have 3 of these things. 1 for food 1 for a keezer and one for a ferm chamber. I wish i would have went with ball lock kegs, i can only fit 3 pin locks. Picked them up during pamida sales for $150.

I use mine for ferm temp control as well. I have two 7.9 gallon plastic buckets. One goes on the hump, with some books or something to prop up one side since the hump isn't wide enough. But since I only have one freezer, I have to drink all my beer first to make room, which kinda sucks. Not that I don't like drinking all my beer . .

You have the voice of an angel. Your voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus.

Can we turn our beds into bunk beds? It would free up so much room for activities.

Yup these things are great and still available, i picked one up last week from Costco for 175. Unfortunately i got it home and it wouldnt turn on, the power was there but the compressor never turned on. Thank god for Costco's easy return policy, other than having to repackage and hauling it back getting a new one only took a few seconds at the Customer service desk.

New one is functioning perfectly, just got my ebay temp controller yesterday so going to be trying to get that setup today. I didnt realize how cold these chest freezers got, i mean when set to 4(the middle setting) this thing gets to like -30F at the bottom of the freezer...ridiculous why do you need it that cold! You'd think that cold would be bad for food.

Agreed, for anyone considering these - I love mine. Turned it into a 3 corney keg keezer, with plenty of space for a 10lb CO2 tank and the hump is free for random 6 packs.

I just bought one of these today, and I can't wait for the keezer parts to arrive in the mail. It looks bigger in my home than I expected, but that's fine by me.

Tonight I'm kegging my first beer. It's a Sour Ginger Oatmeal Stout. I snuck a sample and the ginger isn't noticeable but it tastes delicious. Very excited.
Kegged: Sour Ginger Oatmeal Stout, Saison
Bottled: Grapefruit IIPA, American IPA

Conditioning: Imperial Stout, Flanders Red
