Default Chest freezer for fermentation chamber

I want to start looking for a chest freezer for use as a fermentation chamber. I have a temp controller to hook it up to, but I was wanting to ask the experts how big of a freezer do I need to get 2 better bottles in there?

Thanks in advance!!!

I just bought this freezer yesterday from HD. Price includes shipping straight to your house... I think today is the last day for the sale and it will hold two carboys / buckets from what i have read elsewhere.

Thanks Verg, that is what I am looking at, I had seen it posted by others. I just wasn't sure if I could get 2 better bottles with blow offs in there or not. Great price even if I just use it for 1 better bottle though!!!!

Can anyone confirm that you can get 2 better bottles in this thing?
