Default Ice Cream Freezer

Hi,
I have been thinking of building a 6-8 qt. ice cream freezer for years now using a Briggs FH, or a Nelson Bros. OHV engine. I finally decided that this is the year to build one. I have it pretty well figured out, but wondered if there is any recommendation for an "ideal" RPM at the freezer drive shaft. I haven't ever hand cranked a larger freezer so I am not sure. I would guess somewhere between 40 an 80 RPM would work well. Any suggestions?
Jeff

I initially had my double 6qt running at 60rpm at the freezer, but have since slowed it down to 45rpm ,and it seems to freeze a little faster.

Thanks. I calculated my speed with the drive I have, and I cannot get it below about 55-60 RPM. I hope that will work ok. The engine doesn't like to run much below 1200 RPM. We will see.
