Default dimensions for 3 gallon corny keg for dual kegerator

Hey all.

So I'm converting my 3.4 cubic foot danby fridge into a kegerator, and as expected its too small for 2 5 gallon corny kegs. I'm thinking that if I could find a 3 gallon corny keg, it may fit on the hump/comrpessor at the back though. Does anyone know the dimensions of a 3 gallon keg so I can take some measurements?

Thanks!

With attached connections, my 3 gallon needs 18" height X 8" diameter to clear.
It had a single handle, but i removed it.

sorry for reviving a (somewhat) dead threat. Empty your message box cryp0

Just curious if you completed your conversion and if the 3g and 5g cornys fit into the 3.4 cu ft fridge (with co2). Just picked one up and was hoping to convert it.

No worries

I never bothered. It would be so tight that I called it a day with one keg. It's actually pretty tight with just the one keg + 5lb CO2. I'm kinda starting to wish I'd gone with a bigger mini fridge so i could have gone dual tap though (2 x 5 gallon).

So based on your 1 5g keg + co2, you don't think a 3g would fit?

Anyone else tried this - 5g + 3g + co2 in 3.4 cu ft minifridge?

Based on the cost of 3 gal cornys compared to 5 gal cornys you might consider just buying a larger mini fridge that would fit two 5 gal kegs.

I agree with kmat. You will be much happier with 2 x 5 gallon cornies, unless you already have the fridge
