Has anyone got any comments or suggestions?
Is there an intermeadiate step between party pig and cornelius kegs?
A 2.5 gallon keg set up doesn't really save any room, except the keg is a bit shorter. Everything else is the same size, the tanks/regulator/etc- plus the diameter of the keg is the same. They are small enough to fit in a dorm fridge without much converting of the fridge (bending back the freezer compartment), though. So I have one little kegerator at my cottage that I use with 2.5 gallon kegs.
