I was wondering what depth a chest freezer would have to be to fit a 6.5 gallon bucket with an airlock on it? anyone know how tall they are when assembled?

Thanks
Patrick

Roughly 22", give or take. Most will fit a 6.5 gallon bucket no problem. I have one in mine (14 cu ft) right now, has a foot to spare.

Cheers!
