Opinions on this fridge? I'm in the market for my first mini for either a fermentation chamber and/or kegerator. Looks like this would work well for either, eh?

Based on the picture it looks like my GE 4.5 without the freezer compartment. If you take off the door rack and the light there should be room for two cornies up front with the CO2 on the hump in the back.

I am waiting to see if I can get a kegerator of CL, I tried to get one yesterday but it got taken (I responded within 30min of the ad being posted) so if the first guy falls through I get it, if that doesn't work then I'm thinking about this one.

Sweet. Even if you just get it and try and see if two cornies will fit in it, that would be a big help. I'm currently in the market for something like that myself- I'll pester you about it in a few days

EDIT: Thermostat might be a little bit in the way but they can generally be relocated. Dimensions of a corny are 23" height and 9" diameter which fits the "carton" dimensions of this thing- as someone said before the door can been dismantled

EDIT X2: The link in the first post wasn't working for me so I trimmed it, here it is http://www.buy.com/prod/5-0-cf-refri...216745862.html

I'm sure you measured just fine, if you can pull off brewing I imagine you can use a measuring tape

IIRC Pin locks are shorter and wider, Ball locks are taller and a little skinner (like 8.5" or something)

I dont have numbers handy, so I just went with this from micromatic, they do not specify which type it is.
