Now that's not true.

There's the Igloo 5 cf and 7 cf that have thermostats with refrigerator mode built in. See my sig for a link to preview them.

^^ will freeze beer. Even some refrigerators at the highest setting will freeze things.

I have one, Igloo 7cf, and it definitely does not freeze your beer when set to refrigerator setting.

Right. The Igloos can be set as high as 50F.

Yep thank you guys! May play with the set screw just a tad and see if I cant keep her above freezing before buying a Ranco. Has anyone had luck with set screw adjustments on the Holiday 5cft?

Does anyone know if there is a 5cf chest freezer out there that can fit two better bottle fermenters (6 gal)?

I'm thinking possibly having one on the floor and one on the shelf, and putting in a wooden collar high enough for the fermenter on the shelf.

I have the Holiday 5cf. I'm confident 2 BB will fit but I'll verify tonight.

Here's Thadius' spec sheet on it. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/ches...8/#post4731044
