Default Minimum Cornelius Height?

Hi all

Tomorrow I’m going to look at a used Haier wine bottle refrigerator. What is the minimum height needed for a 25” corny with the connectors? (I haven’t bought the cornies yet).

If there are any other suggestions, please feel free to let me know.

Thanks

I think I figured 26.5" for normal black disconnects, and the line coming off it to be able to curve at a normal angle.

I know they have some low-profile disconnects but I couldn't tell you how tall they are. maybe save you a half inch?

There are 3 gallon Cornelius kegs out there but most are quite expensive, the cheapest I've seen is $69. One can buy at least 2 and sometimes 3 five gallon cornys for that price. I'll go measure mine right now and post if it is different than 26.5" that malkore remembers.

Low profile 5 gallon kegs also exist. They are, of course, more expensive. I have seen them on EBay.
