I just landed a 17.1 cubic foot chest freezer for $100..
I will be bringing it home tomorrow (if I can find some buddies to help). Now, WTH am I going to do with it? I can't get it in my basment like I want to do, I may have room in the garage for it or I could just put it in my back garage. I just don't dont know.
If it ends up in the back garage I guess all I will use it for is cold fermenting and maybe store some brews in there but turning it into a kegerator is not going to happen, there is no way I'm walking back there every time I want a beer.

What do you guy think I should do with it?

You should crate it up and ship it to me I spent all day yesturday looking for a decent one off of craigslist for around $100. I would use it to ferment.

Oh yeah, I found one like that last week but I was not able to work out a time to pick it up so I let it go.

Yeah the only problem is i'm going to have to rig the crap out of it to be able to keg at some point because the coils are on the inside/ are the shelves... so i'll have to figure something out without messing with the shelves... but that's a ways away.... it's pretty nice.... I looked at the label it says 20 3/4 cu. ft... still a big'n

P.S. i finally got rid of the smell with some left over Columbus...
