Most online brewing supply places (like northern brewer) carry Ranco, they run about $100. That's a nice looking unit, but make certain it is deep enough for the kegs WITH the connectors on.

Yeah i just eye-balled it. It looked pretty deep though. What are the measurement requirements anyway? For a corny keg system? (i dont have a keg yet but plan on soon, in the meantime i was gonna make some lagers in it...)

With a connector on it you need at least 26 inches of space to fit a ball lock keg. However this gives almost no additional room at all. 28" is probably better as it will give you a little extra room to work with.

that will work. I figured 27" would suffice for a 6.5g carboy with airlock.
thanks...

I just got a Ranco 1110000-type model off ebay for less than 60$ including shipping. You do have to wire it yourself though.

If you don't want to mess with ebay then try out grainger.com. They have the units (un-wired) for around 60$ as well.
