Update on the cooler. I realize I'm not insulated enough but I was wondering if my problem is the freezer. My shop/winery is staying in the mid 80's I can only seem to keep a differential of 15*. My question is my 5 cf freezer when I shoot the inside sides varies from 15 to sometimes as much as 30 degrees and the brine 45 to 55 degrees. It can't possibly ever shut off. Is there something wrong with the freezer or is the constant introduction of warmer brine not letting it work properly. Even if it can't maintain a freezing temperature I would think the sides should read closer to freezing or below. Tried researching it but can't come up with anything. I'm probably at R15 or so right now and will be adding another R 20 poly iso.
