My folks offered me their 35 year old chest freezer for free. I was thinking about putting a temp control on it and using it as a lagering chamber. I already have a 7-8 cubic ft chest freezer that I converted into a Keezer. My question is, how much energy do you think this old freezer would suck? Since I'm not running at freezing temps, but refrigeration temps, would the inefficiency be less? Just wondering if I should take them up on the offer or look for a newer model. I can find newer ones for $50-$100 on craigslist.
