I have a small chest freezer hooked up to a digital Johnson Controller and it's an inefficient way to age cheese in my experience. I haven't built shelves but there are two baskets that come with it. Plastic grid covered with cheese matting cover the bottom. With this I am aging 8 whole cheeses. Whoopee!!!!!
. AND, the humidity is out of control....way too high unless I daily wipe down the condensation that appears on a ten inch swathe along the upper wall region of it. This is with a fan running in it.
. I have to reach into the bottom of the freezer to handlel the cheeses and I'm glad I'm tall but it's still not exactly the best set up although I am considering a stretch and exercise video all based on cheese chores. Think it will be a hit?
I'm not using mini-cave boxes because of the condensation issue in those......and needing to wipe out each one daily. They also use up more space which makes them less efficient. An upright freezer looks like the best thing Santa could give me but I don't think I have that kind of Santa in my life........sigh.
