Looks like Kmart has a deal on a 7.2 cu ft Kenmore freezer. Use code 25OFF125 to get it for $155!!

Unfortunately that means I can't reuse my 6" collar from my dead freezer for the project, gotta go up to 10 for the same amount of hose wiggle room.

FYI I have ball locks
Lucky! I've got ball locks too, 5 will fit max in my Home Depot ge 7.2 with co2 outside.

Still in stock at all the local stores around me. This one holds four ball locks on the floor or two 6.5 gallon fermenters. Makes a great keezer or fermentation chamber!

There ya go!

I have that model recorded as 9 on the floor, 2 on the hump. Or for pin locks, 8 on the floor, 2 on the hump.

Sure there isn't room to squeeze another on in there?

I too was going to go this way but decided on two 7 cu ft models. That way I can have 8 on the floor or a fermentation chamber in one. On sale they work out to be a little over $300 and gives me more flexibility.

Still haven't bought the second one yet though! Lol
