I'm new to this forum, and have little experience working with freezers and refrigerators. I brew a lot of beer, and I have a question whose answer could help a lot of people like me that have chest freezers that they would like to use for very-cold-but-not-freezing beer storage. If you guys have a good answer (if one exists I'm sure you'll have it), I will post it on the beer brewing forums that I often frequent.
Is there a way to modify the thermostat control on a chest freezer so that it will maintain a temp of about 35 degrees F? Sure, I could use an external temp control and probe, but that seems like a waste given that there already exists a perfectly good temp control device already in the freezer. My Kenmore has a 1-7 dial, but even the warmest setting still freezes liquids (beer). Anybody know how to modify this temp control to work at warmer temps?
Thanks a lot. Sorry I can't contribute to the knowledge of this forum, but I'm sure the beer gods will appreciate any assistance you can give me.
