    Naaa.. it's the 210 litre one. Just big enough. I got it especially so I can brew with US05 in summer and also have the choice for making proper lagers and pilsners + cold crashing. Winner.

    That's where this purchase of mine came from .. I googled gumtree for 2nd hand freezer - saw Defy 210L in Atlantis for R2500 .. so I googled the full price - found HiFi Corp had one on special for R3000 (down from 3300 I think) and the makro had same defy on special for R3000 - then I saw the Hisense for R2600 - thought fukkkit almost same price as second hand one plus I get 4 year warranty with it. Damn

    EDIT:
    I got an old fridge in my garage that's out of gas. So, I got a quote to fix. R280 for call-out. R600 for regas. R300 to find and repair leak. Then I still sit with an old fridge. Almost easier just to buy a new one. If you strip the old fridge from it's copper and aluminium then you'll get R300 from scrap yard.

    EDIT2:

    Not far off versus 210L for R2600. Will probably be around there when on special

    1 benefit versus an upright fridge: it 'holds' most of the cold air when you open it.

    The benefit from an upright is the condensation droplets runs out and it;s lined with plastic (no rust) ... in a CF its collects at the bottom ... leads to mildew and later rust
