Just curious...why an even number?? Setting up my first keezer in the garage as we speak and planned on 3 (ordered parts for 3 too).

Fantastic job! I will definitely be referring to this when I begin the adventure into kegging! I just wanted to point out that on this model, you exterior width measurement is smaller than you interior width measurement ;-). I'm sure it's just a typo, but I can tell you are as much a perfectionist as I am. Fantastic job again, keep up the great work!

Cheers!

Awesome. I'll try to get to this tonight. I'm certainly more interested in drafting this one up than yet another Frigidaire model.

No problem at all. While I don't enjoy drafting each model, I really would like to save people the time of reading through 120 pages of a thread, as I did.

Appreciate that. Yep, it's a typo. It's really 42¾" long on the exterior. I'll update that some day when I get bored. It's really a pain to edit, then re-convert the .docx to .png, re-upload, re-name the image link, etc.

BTW, it seems that any Frigidaire model number starting with the letter 'L' is a Lowe's exclusive model. My gas range starts with 'L'. Otherwise, non-exclusive models begin with 'F'.

Just realized I never answered this. Sorry about the delay.

I recommended an even number only because most people end up installing an even number of taps on keezers that are 10.0 CF+. There's no specific reason why you have to use an even number of taps.

Hence, I figured he'll wind up with an even number of taps in the end. For an even number of taps, the middle two taps are centered on the collar horizontally. For an odd number of taps, the middle tap is centered on the collar horizontally.

Essentially, I didn't want him to end up with a wonky looking layout. All of this goes out the window once you start considering in-collar controllers.

Re-worked the first 30 posts or so. Removed a Frigidaire 15cf-class model that apparently doesn't exist. Not sure how it got in there. Removed an Amana 15cf-class model I can't find any recent information on. Moved all of the posts above those two models down, then added the Danby 5.5cf DCF550W1 and the Igloo 5.2cf FRF452B into the empty slots. Updated the index to reflect this, but if you were looking in the last 20 minutes or so, things might have been wonky while I was editing.

Finished the layouts for the Danby 5.5cf DCF550W1. They're now posted.

These take me about 2 hours per model to do. Most of the time is spent exporting, converting, uploading, editing images, and posting the results. I'm going to limit myself to 1-per-day on my days off. Hopefully that will prevent burnout. Sorry if it slows things down for anybody awaiting a specific model.

Next up (in order): Danby DCG700W1, Igloo 5.2 FRF452B

Thadius, I'm debating getting a 5.0 CF or 4.4 mini. Was leaning towards mini fridge because I don't have to make a huge collar. I see on both 5.0 chest freezers here you can fit 2 ball locks on the floor and 1 ball on the hump with a 8-10" collar.

Can you fit a pin lock on the hump on either of those ?

If that is the case I would definitely go this route for 3 kegs with a smaller collar
