No apologies, but I use a 5cf chest freezer with Ranco as a ferm. chamber. It was double the price of your build (but was it really when you take into account labor it took for you to build?), but I know it works. Also, I got the chest freezer new....if I bought used I'm sure my method would have come it at equivalent price to yours (cheaper when you count the labor that went into yours)
Hey, I'm all for DIY stuff if for no other reason than to do it. It's just that I at the end of it all I want to have a workable product. My point was that I'm not sure that these DIY large-capacity ferm. chambers fit that bill most of the time, and I wanted to point that out to other folks considering this build.
