Default What size chest freezer to get? Keezer.

Setting up my first keezer and am struggling to figure out whats the best sized chest freezer to get. I'm probably down to a 5 cu ft and a 7 cu ft.

How much more will I gain.

How much can a 5 vs a 7 hold.

I'm going to have a 5lb CO2 tank and I'd like to have a minimum of (3) 5 gallon kegs. How big should I get?

If you do a search on the site there's a post from awhile back with different sized freezers and the number of cornys they hold.

I can put two kegs and one 5lb co2 in my 7cft. If I put the co2 on the ledge in the freezer I could put 3 kegs with room. Got my freezer at Sam's club for ~190.00.

A 10 footer will hold 6 ball lock kegs comfortably. For every other size you can imagine, check out this thread...

Cheers!
