dimensions of corny keg
 
I am starting to look for a used small chest freezer, but I realized I do not have any demensions for corny kegs. So what is a safe height and width to go with on these, so I get the right freezer for my needs.

thanks

Cornies are 8.5 inches in diameter and 25 inches high. Allow at least another 2 inches for lines and 1/2 inch between them for ease of loading. Depending on what type of taps and their location, you will have to either increase clearences or leave an empty spot. Many chest freezers have a "shelf", which is actually the compressor housing. It's a good place to put the CO2 bottle and manifolds.

You might want to allow a bit more than 2 inches above the keg as I nearly kinked my gas line because the shelf above the keg was a bit close to the disconnect fittings.

I guess it depends on the type of line you have, mine is not very flexible.
