Default Would this work as a kegerator?

http://images.canadianlisted.com/nla...le_5251113.jpg

If I wasn't concerned about a tap handle mount and wanted to just keep either a corny or 1/6 barrel in there with co2 would this work?

Unfortunately I don't know the inside dimensions but it's about 4 feet tall. What would the dimensions need to be to accommodate this and a 5# co2 tank ?

I'm also interested to hear if anyone else has seen this type of set up before and how well it worked.

Thanks.

I've seen a few of these on our local craigslist. So far I haven't seen anyone use them for keg serving, but that isn't to say it hasn't been done. The problem with some (most? all?) of these is that the have an internal metal framework that contains the cooling coils. That would get in the way of placing larger items like a keg in it. If you can get a photo of the inside of it as well as the dimensions, you should be able to tell if it'd work for you.

Welcome to the forums.

Does this help? It looks like the cages come out but it's hard to tell if there are any other obstructions once they are removed. I'm thinking about trading for this item on craigslist so I appreciate your quick response.

Thanks for the warm welcome, I've been using this forum a lot, just never had to register because I never had a question to ask.

Thanks for the link. I wonder if instead of changing the fan placement if I could modify one of the cages and turn it upside down so that the keg would sit a few inches off of the fan. Thoughts?

Turns out the trade fell through. Now it's back to looking at chest freezers.
