Default Its about time!

Finally convinced SWMBO that I needed to start kegging. She usually helped me bottle so there wasn't much convincing to do

This is the 7.0 cu. ft Magic Chef chest freezer from Home Depot plus $15 of stuff to build the collar.

Fits 4 kegs perfectly with enough room on the hump for a carboy (for lagering) or two more kegs with a taller collar.

I need to add some caulk to seal it up. That is my pumpkin ale waiting to go into a keg.

Anyone else have this?

EDIT: Sorry about the poor grammar on the the title

If you received it empty, it doesn't contain contents so you are good to go.

I've been wanting a fridge or freezer for lagering/fermenting lately, with the possibility of converting later for another kegerator... how many carboys do you think you could fit in there..??

Sure!!! I was actually going to make a thread asking anyone in the Atlanta area if they needed bottles. I don't have a lot of empty ones at the moment as I bottled a batch last week, send me a PM in a couple weeks though.

Depends on the size of the carboys.

Inside it is 17in deep and 20in wide to the hump and the hump is 8in...you do the math

Sounds great! I live close enough to pick them up. I share too much and have to buy more every other week or so!

Sounds like you need to enforce an empties trade-in policy on any outgoing brew!
