    Hello Everyone.
    I'm looking at getting a brew fridge but have been told chest freezers work better for this??
    Is this right or should I look getting an old fridge.
    I want to be able to fit 2x30 litre FV inside.
    Thanks in advance.

    Chesty's will mean lifting in and out full fermenters, I prefer all fridges (ie no freezer), I had 2 when I was in sydney and I miss them now:(

    Depends for what purpose you want to use the freezer. Freezer cool thing. I chose GE FUF14DLRWW feature function frost free - https://grapefrost.com/frost-free-freezers/#ge

    I like upright freezers, but they are harder to get.
