So.. for those of you with chest freezers with digital temp control, how do you go about taking care of humidity in there? I have a couple small EvaDry "passive" dehumidifiers w/ the renewable silica, but i was wondering if there's another way? a "plug in" type, perhaps?
I just built a keezer, out of a 2005 chest freezer and the runner seal doesn't hold well because the hinges don't line up to accomodate the new collar where the taps go. so i'm trying to think of my options.
as far as i can tell, they are:
1. build a custom hinge, and maybe add rubber seal to the top of the 2x4 of the collar, to complement the top of the chest freezer lid
use an "active" (plug in type) dehumidifier, with the power cord running out of the freezer, and figure out how to seal the area where the cord comes out of the freezer
buy a shitload of small evaDrys. inefficient , but an option, i suppose.
my chest freezer's about 15 cubic feet.
