At the moment, we're using a pair of 7 cu ft Holiday chest freezers for fermentation/kegging. Each can hold 2 6-gal carboys along with a few 6-packs stuck in and around for conditioning. The cost for each was slightly more than one of the wine bottle coolers. Unfortunately, using chest freezers sacrifices precious space - they can't be under-the-counter, and you have to have clearance above them to open them.
1. will a 6 gallon carboy with airlock/blow-off tube fit into one of your coolers?
2. do you have need to heat these? If so, how to you accomplish this? My brew area is in an uninsulated area of the basement, so I do have to apply heat to my freezers (tiny space heater or blow dryer and Ranco Dual Controller).
Looks good. Thanks for posting.
