No, i was trying to figure that out myself. Online only gives external measurements. I am going to pick one up on Saturday AM, ill let you know as soon as I can stuff some kegs in and find out.

Can anyone post the dimensions of corny keg? I could try to call Home Depot and see if i can get a guy to measure the inside.

That is the exact same chest freezer I have. It will fit 3 kegs and a CO2 tank EASILY. With room on the bump for a carboy and miscellaneous beer items. Without the tank, 4 kegs can fit (and actually I have a 10 lb tank, it may be possible to fit a 5lb on the hump and fit 4 kegs). By my estimation, if you built a collar (I have yet to build mine) with a 10" wide piece of wood, you could put two more on the hump for a total of 6.

I can do 4 on the bottom (without the collar) or 4+2 on the hump (with a collar). I usually keep 4 kegs in it with a carboy on the hump.

Not to hijack the thread, but I REALLY need to get my collar built. Look at how old that thread is, and I still have yet to build my collar. Granted I have had a busy year so far, but I could have found time. I wont have time now though for at least another month. I even already have a tap. I have the tap, just nowhere to put it

Ah, thats great news. I plan on keeping my CO2 external, so ill be good for 4 taps.

I also called Home Depot and the guy was extremely helpful. He knows I'm driving 100+ miles to get this.

External (if you care) 34x24

Internal:
25" Deep (not on the hump)
18" Deep to hump
17" Front to Back
20" Hump to Side
8.5" Length of Hump

So the main compartment for kegs is 17"x20". If someone has corny dimensions you could figure out how many you could fit in 17" x 20".
