You are correct. I have been in the market for a chest freezer for lagering. 5 QF will work for one. at least 8 for two. Only drawback from a chest freezer is lift the carboy or kegs into it. If you have the muscle, go for it!!

It's actually easier on your back to lift a carboy or bucket out of a chest freezer than to bend over and extend one to fit in a fridge. I know, as I've done both and my bad back screams when I put kegs in the fridge.

The chest freezer is a straight lift and the fridge requires extension.
