The Sanyo 4910 (recently discontinued from BB) was only 4.9 CF...2 kegs.

If you can look for the 14.8/15CF at BB. It is 48" long and will hold 8 kegs, a tank and the shelf can hold a case or so. You'll have to remove the blue plastic dividers though.

I have a 7.4cu Kenmore that holds 3 cornies and a 5lb cylinder with very little space to spare. I put bottles on the compressor 'hump/ledge' and the basket holds hops and yeast.

Yeah, carboy will fit. But you will not want to wait until the lager is done fermenting to have kegs on tap amigo.

I've got the GE 5.0 cf with a collar and it holds 4 cornies if I put the gas outside, or three with the gas inside. Without the collar it could probably hold 2 cornies and a small co2 tank.
