Default Sanyo 4912, does it fit 1/4 size kegs?

I've spoken to a few places in North Jersey saying that most of the domesitc beer, IE Budweiser, coors, and miller dont' come with Sixth size and only 1/2 & 1/4 sizes. My question is, will this sanyo 4912 fit these size kegs (This is what I am looking to build with)?

If not, does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

I don't think they do - at least not the standard 1/4 barrels. If you can get it in slim quarters then your probably good to go as those are about the size of a corny keg.

I think if it can hold 2 cornies, it should be able to hold one 1/4 keg.

Basically, I would like to know which size kegs budweiser (Anheuser-Bush) makes that'll fit in the Sanyo 4912.

Two cornies = 18", 1 half barrel sanke = 16 1/8". A half barrel should physically fit in a Sanyo, it's the sanke tapping hardware that may present a problem.

Looking here:
Anheuser-Busch Draught Beer Information

I think it should fit:
1/4 Slim Barrel Keg - (1 only w/ C02)
1/4 Barrel Keg - (1 only w/o C02??)

Compressor hump?

A sanyo 4912 can fit two cornies side by side; while width is OK, it won't be deep enough... If you can put a shelf to raise it over the compressor hump, and it isn't too tall (probably is), it would fit if you take off the inner door.

I don't think it will.

Will not fit a half barrel keg. For sure. Not even a quarter barrel (not deep enough). You might have a chance of getting two sixth barrels in there side by side. And you can def get one slim quarter in there, however you might need a low profile sanke coupler.

Sanyo 4912s are primarily for homebrew cornies. I would say that you should look into how to transfer beer from a commercial keg into a corney. Its not that hard.

You can definitely fit two 1/6 barrels. It is tight, but they fit at an angle. The shelves in the door need to be removed and I trimmed a VERY small portion of plastic out to allow the door to shut easier. I'm not sure about 1/4 barrels but they may fit above the compressor hump, I can check tonight. 1/2 barrels definitely do not fit.


They will also fit a 7 gallon bucket fermentor and 6 gallon BB's and carboy's.

Yea, you can fit one sixtel and a corny easy; two sixtels I'd say remove the inner door panel (or 'trim' as ajwillys posted)- With just the shelves removed, two sixtels won't fit.

A regular sankey coupler will work, but it does have a bit of a bend on the beer line on the top of the coupler. If you already have a sankey coupler, I wouldn't spend the money on a low profile; If you're in the market for a new one, I'd go with a low profile.

Cheers !
