Thanks. Yes, the collar is optional. It just creates a nice place to run hoses through and install faucets. I didn't need mine for height reasons at all.

Thanks Bobby.

I did ask the wife about maybe getting the whirlpool instead...no dice. 7.5cu is all I can hope for, for now at least.

Once I have it and the 3 cornies (thursday) I'll post a pic of how everything fits..maybe I can wedge all 3 kegs in there...measuring round things in a square space...not one of my strong points

If all goes well I'll probably collar it for ease of dispensing and to plumb CO2 from the exterior.

Just wanted to update this post to state that I could in fact fit 3 corny kegs, plus a 5lb CO2 cylinder inside this little 7.4cu freezer. I can put about a case of bottles on the compressor shelf/ledge, and still have room to use the basket to hold extra hops n' stuff.

guess i better get another batch of beer going.
