How was that done? I tried that and it about kicked my butt. In fact, I pushed my whole body weight down on this and still couldn't get it down into the "hole." Unless it's easy, I don't really care about adding the fourth keg. Seriously, did someone take a hammer to the fridge to make that fourth Korney Keg to fit?

lol. No hammering needed, no excessive weight. But honestly it is a PERFECT fit. I think if anything was 1/16" larger it wouldn't fit. I actually had to shave a thin layer of ice that accumulated on the freezer wall off before it would fit.

For some reason, if the first keg put in is in the back left then the full four won't fit. If the first keg is in the front left then the four fit in. So maybe try that?

I believe you couldn't get them to fit. I'm pretty sure acceptable variation in the manufacturing of the freezer could prevent the 4 from fitting. I probably just got lucky with one that has a slightly larger interior dimensions.

I'm going to have to believe that it's the manufacturer. You must have that little bit of extra room. But, hell, good for you. I'm glad you got that to fit. But, that's not going to happen here in my fridge.

I love my setup though. I have two towers with 2 spouts each and drains. It's pretty cool. I dont' have the cool cover like yours, but mine is in the garage where my wife can't complain about it being out of sinc with her decorating.

Good Luck,
David

*subscribed*

Anyone else have problems with condensation building up in the floor of their keezer? I have to mop mine out about once a month (and its a seriously difficult reach because of the collar making the lip so high (45" from the floor).

This is a nice build because it does away with the collar plan (my freezer was too small so I wanted a keg up on the shelf to fit 3).

Also, I used about 1.5" x 1.5" wood strips up the sides of the freezer, surrounded on 3 sides with plywood and then decorative material. The compressor is still running strong after about 6 months and my house hasn't burnt down, so I don't think the ventilation around the outside of the freezer is THAT significant.

What type of material do you plan to use for the top surface? Tile?

I'm not having problems with condensation in my freezer, although its super dry where I live right now. The only problems I have is when I get trigger happy shooting star san in search of leaks.

I've seen other people use these in their keezer.

I haven't fully decided what material I'm going to use on the surface. I'm between tile and copper sheet. But I'm leaning towards tile.

I will try this and report back. My first keg is in the back left right now and I have not tried it the other way. Honestly, it is so close that I bet a little re-shaping of the interior walls of would make it work.

I'll report back over the weekend.
