Here are pics of the inside with a keg in it and the co2 strapped to the back. It is a little back heavy, you must put the keg into the cooler before you slide the co2 tank into the back or it will fall over backwards.

There are those new 2.5 gallon kegs from China that have slightly different dimensions being shorter but slightly larger diameter. Has anyone tried squeezing two of those bad boys in an ice cube?

If you are trying to put 2 3-gallon kegs into an Igloo IceCube, wider is probably not good. Have you read this whole thread and seen the posts regarding shaving the rubber boot on newer kegs?

I can say mine are old and it's tight.

Yes I read the entire thread before posting. None of the posts mention anything about 2.5 gallon kegs, so my question is not covered.

Here is the link to the keg in question: http://cornykeg.com/catalog.asp?prod...showprevnext=1

They give a diameter of 9" from the seller. The 3 gallon keg with rubber bottom are said to be 8.5", but I am not certain how accurate or if the diameter is outer or inner.

Sorry, I was not trying to come across the wrong way. I was just trying to get a an idea of what you were asking.

Both types of my kegs measure approximately 8.5" outside diameter.

Thanks for the inspiration, guys!

I attached a picture of my 5 gallon keg cooler... its maiden voyage was a success today at work.
