So: assuming a keg size of 9" diameter by 23" height, I think I should be able to fit three or four kegs? Or maybe my maths is wrong?

Ball locks are 8.5"d x 25"h.
Pin locks are 9"d x 21"h.

I probably don't have your model listed, but check out the links in my sig.

Your model is a bit deeper and narrower than the US models I have listed. That said, yours looks to be a 5 cu ft class, and all the US models in that class can hold 3-4 ball locks with a platform and collar, assuming the CO2 is on the outside.

Got the first tap installed today! But still waiting on LHBS to get kegs and CO2 back in stock!
