I curently have a large chest freezer that I use with temp controller to ferment..
Im just geting into kegging and have everything besides an extra Chest freezer
Im going to get one soon.. BUT INCASE I dont, since it would be nice just to have one piece of equipment rather than 2 chest freezers..... 1 ferm. 1 keezer
Can I use it as a "Keezer" when not fermenting beer?... I know sounds like a lame simple question...But im asking because I don't want to build a 2x collar and do all the work if by adding the collar/ increasing interior volume will cause issues down the road with temp control or causing strain on the freezer somehow. Also i know I wont be able to ferment while i have serviceable beer at 42F... till the beer is gone... right..
Do you guys just pull the kegs out full or empty and ferment new wort then once completely done.. put kegs back and drop freezer back to serving temp... Not suggesting
partitioning the freezer, as the freezer I have now is pretty big still fairly new...
Easily hold 2 to 3 kegs and 2 fermenters (30L speidels)
Do you beer makers have 2 separate pieces of equipment or use one for all???
